There's something that all Rotary club members have in common: We take action. As community volunteers, we reach out to neighbors in need. We build, support, and organize. We save lives. We work locally and globally.
The main objective of Rotary is service -- in the community, the workplace and the world. Around the world and around the corner, the 1.2 million men and women of Rotary
  • Get involved in our communities

Our Club in Action
It's that time of year again! The Caring and Sharing tree is up in the lobby of the Grass Valley Police Department with tags for holiday gifts to cheer local children! More tags will be added daily! Our Club is inviting members to drop by the GV Police and pick a tag for a child in need! The tree will be easy to find and a quick drop in. Choose a child or multiple children, and enjoy a shopping spree to bring special joy this holiday season. GVPD is open weekdays 8am-5pm.
Bring your gifts to our Holiday Party on December 7 and Judy Soldavini and George will deliver them to the GV Police Department for our Club. Additional gift cards are welcome!
Spread the holiday joy!
Rotary has a long tradition of bell ringing with the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign through the holidays each year throughout the US and beyond. Contact Walt Stickel if you would like to join a team on Saturday December 9. Nevada City Rotary will be ringing in front of SPD Nevada City from 10 am - 6pm. If not ringing, drop by with a few coins or bills and share the cheer and hope as we ring to raise money to support our local community!
Our 2022 Bell Ringers!

Rotary Ramblers rocked’ on Sugarloaf!

Kelly Babineau, Dave Brown, Robin Milam, Tom Ryan, Dennis Geare, Cathy Wilcox-Barnes, Chris Newsom, Chris’s sister Gretchen, and Walt Stickel
Nine Rotarians (and family members) braved a cold morning as we hiked to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain on Saturday, November 25th. We had a great hike and were rewarded with awesome views of Nevada City and the Yuba River Canyon, not to mention the fun fellowship. With Cathy at the lead, respits were filled with all sorts of historical tidbits about Sugarloaf, Nevada City, hydraulic mining and more!  Along the way we scouted potential locations for our second Trex bench. After snacks and a few pictures at the top, we were back to our cars before noon.
