Quote of the Week
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
This week local author and historian, Jan Westmore will share stories of our rich history. Jan will speak about the building of the transcontinental railroad and the symbiotic relationship between Colfax and Nevada City/Grass Valley, especially during the 19th century.

We had a great turnout for our Aussie Social at Ol’ Republic Simon Olney shared Ol’ Republic Brewery’s vision for Nevada City and Grass Valley to be a brewery destination place. He welcomed and is encouraging new brewery to open in the area. “Passionately Handcrafted Beer” was had by all the beer drinkers and a few non-beer drinkers at our Aussie Down Under celebration Thursday night. Technical constraints and noise level limited our plans to share more of what went on last week at the Rotary Convention. Lucky ones got slices of Cheryl’s banana cream with chocolate meringue pie!
Kim Coughlin shared the history of Novak’s Menswear and Lady Pendleton, a wonderful Nevada City clothing store frequented by many Club members. She highlighted the comradery and easy referral network Nevada City merchants share among each other. In that same spirit, rather than be dismayed by having to speak over the noise level, Kim was happy to see our Club patronizing Seven Hills Merchants!

Children's Festival Friday, July 18, 2014 - 09:00 to 20:00
The Children's Festival will return to Pioneer Park in Nevada City. The park will be transformed into a lively Renaissance Faire for children. This year's festival will include over twenty arts and crafts tables, strolling minstrels, a magician, face-painters, a bridge-guarding troll, medieval fencing, and Claude, the life-sized mechanical dragon. This year's Children's Festival will once again have two sessions, from 9am - 12 pm and from 5pm - 8pm. Admission to each session is $3. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
The festival is sponsored by the Nevada City Rotary Club and many local businesses - and is made possible by the more than 200 local volunteers who work tirelessly to bring this unique event to the children of Nevada County. Volunteers are needed!
