At the August 3rd regular meeting of the Vestavia Hills Sunrise Rotary Club, we were honored to hear encouraging and inspiring thoughts of Rotary District Governor Sue Mitchell. A true believer in quality education and passionate robotics leader, Dr. Mitchell focused her message on how Rotary clubs make a difference. We were impressed by her leadership as she was impressed with our club's commitment to community.

The Vestavia Hills Sunrise Rotary Club annually hosts its First Responders Celebration to honor Vestavia Hills’ police and fire departments. The celebration consists of a low country boil, live music, a game truck, and other fun-filled activities. The proceeds from the celebration are used in part to purchase items requested by the fire and police departments. Last year, they donated two drones with advanced photographic capabilities. Earlier this week, the fire department successfully used these FLIR camera equipped drones to locate and rescue people on the Cahaba River. They openly thanked the Vestavia Hills Sunrise Club for the purchase of the equipment.
