Dear Rotarians and Friends,
Our speaker this past Thursday was Lexis LaRue from Masked Warriors of Nevada County. Lexis charmed and inspired us all. She is part of a local grass roots organization that in a few short months has become an international force for good in these days of COVID-19.
Masked Warriors supply homemade masks, surgical caps, soap, hand sanitizer, and so much more for our community at large and beyond - including hospitals, doctors offices, families, and individuals. Everything is free to those requesting items.
We announced that the Club is planning to make a small donation. After the meeting several Club members expressed an interest in adding a personal donation to this very worthwhile organization. If anyone has an interest in doing that you can send a check to our mailbox and we will make sure the Masked Warriors receive it. If you plan to send a check, please contact Cathy or reply to this email so we know to expect it. Then mail your check to:
Nevada City Rotary
PO Box 74
Nevada City, CA 95959
We are also working on a project with the Masked Warriors group to pass out masks to our Nevada City community. Dave Robinson has offered his Dave's Auto Repair parking lot and we're working out the logistics for a socially safe, touchless exchange for the masks. We will keep the club informed on dates, times, and jobs available.

Thanks everyone! More to come...
Happy recipients at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital!
