This project was started in 1989 toward the end of the first year following the chartering of the Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise. The original suggestion suggestion came from Sandra Loucks, wife of Charter President Brian Loucks. They recognized that a fall/winter fundraising project was necessary if we were to undertake the projects we dreamed of. (We had already undertaken the annual golf tournament and bingo was soon to follow as a source of club revenue).

We sold about 450 pots of flowers during out first year; now, this project has grown into one of our most important fundraising projects. We sell upwards to 2000 pots annually and realize over $10,000 which helps the Club to support various projects within the community and abroad.

Among the Club's first projects were annual contributions to palliative care at both hospitals (when we had two) and a day-away event for seniors which is still an annual event.

Some of the other community projects that have benefited:-

  • The Aquatic Centre        $50,000 
  • Children's Playground Equipment at Lamoureux Park      $40,000

  • The Children's Christmas Fund receives ongoing support as do a number of other local charities and organizations including Tri-County Literacy and the children's mental health education program. 
  • Over the years, the Agape Centre benefited from the preparation and serving of a monthly Agape luncheon by Rotarians until the program was terminated by Agape. Funds for the snowsuit fund, Curious Chefs program and equipment upgrades have also been donated..

Internationally, the Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise is committed to assisting in humanitarian programs such as eradicating polio; restoring eyesight through cataract surgeries; making clean water available to those who do not have access to it and assisting in the elimination of Buruli Ulcer, a flesh-eating disease, and other neglected tropical diseases such as Yaws and Leprosy.
