Who We Are

Benzie Sunrise Rotary is a volunteer service club whose members donate their time and resources to help others in the community and beyond, with a special emphasis on making a difference in the lives of Benzie County youth. Our motto is “Service Above Self,” and we strive to live by the Four-Way Test. We meet each Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. for breakfast at the Cold Creek Inn at 185 Benzie Blvd in Beulah, Michigan.  Guests are always welcome; come and check us out!
