Rotary at the Fair and Rotary's Nevada County Destruction Derby
A big THANK YOU to all of our Club for a very successful Fair week. It was a week of long hours, grueling efforts, and a few blips mixed with laughter and fellowship. We came together as a Club with the support of friends, family and PV & GV Rotarians to cover 100 shifts! 2014 RYLA Alumnus Chase Frey is pictured working his shift with Walt. See photos on our Facebook at 2014 Fair and Walt's & Sandy's View.
A special thank you to Walt Stickel for round-the-clock management of our Fair Booth! Thank you to Ellen for overseeing all things money on top of working shifts! Shift captains took on longer shifts. A number of you worked well beyond 2 shifts!
Preliminary figures suggest we exceeded last year's gross sales and are close on expenses. In addition to the Treat Street booth, we are expecting a distribution of profits from the Destruction Derby as icing on top!
Thank you and congratulations Dennis for co-managing the fabulous first Rotary Destruction Derby with Allison of Nevada County South! The crowd loved it! See photos on our Facebook and at https://www.facebook.com/NCDestructionDerby
