Nevada City Rotary is proud to participate with three local Rotary Clubs in a $26,000 District Grant to pay for numerous additions for Bright Futures for Youth (BFFY).
The Rotary District 5190 Grant – the second major grant from the clubs and district during the past year – will allow Bright Futures for Youth to buy audiovisual equipment, install an ADA-compliant ramp, and pay for new patio furniture and lighting at the nonprofit’s Litton Hill campus for the organization’s Unhoused Project. Bright Future’s SAFE program assists young people facing housing instability.
One word for this year’s Area 4 Music Contest — WOW! Six very talented high school musicians competed. Winners were:
1. Athena Giuliani, violin, Forest Charter (5th from left)
2. Baraka Anderson, piano, SAEL (3rd from left)
3. Joanna Cancino, flute, NU (6th from left)
An accomplished violinist, Athena advances to District Conference on May 18.  Last year Baraka won Area 4 and placed third at District Conference.
