The Breakfast Club

Kona Sunrise started as a breakfast club when a former member of the Rotary Club of Kona, Cynthia Hope, began asking former and current members of the Rotary Club of Kona if they might be interested in starting a new breakfast club. The usual lunch meetings made it difficult for her to leave her job; five other members had left the club for the same reason.

With full District support, Kona Sunrise Rotary was officially chartered on April 9, 2009 with 26 members.

Ms. Hope served as the first president of the club from its official charter date until the end of the 2010 Rotary year, a period of 16 months. Since its inception, the club has averages about 23 members each year, with a high in 2015 of 29 members.
