About St. Augustine Sunrise Rotary Cub
Formed in 1988 as an offshoot of the Noon Club with 35 charter members. Today we are 77 leaders within our professions and our community, who get together once a week for fellowship and an opportunity to give back to our community and the world.
Rhythm & Ribs is an all volunteer effort of many more people than just our club members. Over 200 volunteers put in over 2,000 hours to run the festival for three days. Additionally, thousands of hours are spent planning the festival throughout each year.
All the members of the St. Augustine Sunrise Rotary Club volunteer most of their weekend alongside their many friends and supporters of Rhythm & Ribs.
