The Foundation Dinner is This Week!
Rotary Foundation Dinner is Thursday evening at Miner's Foundry with Jean Irwin as our guest speaker. We have 20 Rotarians and guests from our Club signed up for what will be a very special evening! Social hour begins at 5:30pm and our Program at 6:30pm.
Remember we have MOVED Club meeting to Foundation Dinner and we will NOT be meeting at noon!
'Tis the Season for Gifts and Holiday Merry Making!
Remember Amazon Smile gives .5% of every purchase to Nevada City Rotary if you are signed up!!!
Sign up through http://smile.amazon.com/ to earn money for our Club while you shop on Amazon.com. You will need to specifically select "Rotary Club of Nevada City Foundation" under "Pick Your Own Charitable Organization". Shopping is done via Smile.Amazon.com rather than Amazon.com but the items and buying experience are exactly the same.
We are especially mindful for those who are less fortunate. This holiday season our Club will be collecting non-perishable foods to deliver to our local Food Bank. Bring your donations of canned or other non-perishable foods to Club meetings through the month of December. Each week as donations warrant, we will deliver locally.

Mystery Rotarian ~ from Cathy Wilcox-Barnes, Club Services
Robin and Cathy had some chuckles with a few of the guesses that came in for last week's Mystery Rotarian who was none other than President Robin! The Mystery Rotarian is stimulating personal conversations and helping us all become better acquainted as fellow Rotary Members.
With Foundation Dinner, Thanksgiving and our Christmas Dinner ahead, Mystery Rotarian is taking a break until the week of December 11. We will be back with another Mystery Member for you! In the meanwhile, continue to take those special moments to share and listen! Enjoy the process!
