Dear Rotarians and Friends,
This Week: Please note August 31 is 5th Thursday so Nevada City Rotary is DARK!
What "The End" looks like ~ Waymarker 0!!!
A message from Cathy: Finally after 817.5 km (plus more for wandering and getting lost) I arrived at Waymarker 0 - no more walking on the Camino. :( I arrived at the Lighthouse of Finesterre (Galician for End of Land), the end of the Camino and found a marker put in by the Santiago Rotary club! Not expecting that but not surprised either because Rotarians are at work in their communities everywhere. I plan to go to their meeting Monday night (starts at 9:00 pm) and then have a 5:15 am train to Madrid. Maybe I'll get lucky and be able to go to a meeting there also. I'll be in touch later but for now my Camino is officially done! Tell everyone I said "hi"! Pres Cathy

Last Week Lunch: Sudoku as a Teaching Tool with Jerry Martin
Sudoku is Jerry Martin’s passion. Through his after school program and children’s team tournament, as a teacher he understands the value of Sudoku as a tool for developing creativity and analytical skills. Jerry is eager to expand his program for children in schools throughout Nevada County.
Jerry walked the Club though an easy puzzle and explained how one could logically determine what numbers to add. For those who want to learn more, Jerry has also offered to teach Sudoku to interested Rotarians for friendly fellowship and competition. If you are interested, please contact Jerry directly at www.sudokuasateachingtool.org, 477-6282
Treat Street - Clean up and Winterizing
Walt Stickel, Ken Ching, Tom Ryan, Tom and Robin Milam cleared out the last of the perishables on Saturday. The remaining bags of ice were donated to Music in the Mountains for today's Brewfest. Terry Brown was happy to get the ice for MIM. The patio panels are installed, the Pepsi soda dispenser has been purged and cleaned, and the water heaters emptied. Cold water is still on but hot water heaters are drained and offl The walk-in compressor, electricty and gas is turned off and equipment unplugged. We do have a few actions that need to be done. These include painting the backside of panels and installing automatic door closers per Health Department instruction.
If you have aprons or booth supplies, please coordinate with Robin or Walt to get them back into the booth. Again, many thanks to everyone for another fun but very full Fair week, prep and cleanup!
