DG Stacy touched our hearts with her personal Rotary story and her warm message to share openly from the heart. Together through Rotary we leave footprints where we have never been.
 
Stacy opened the meeting by inducting our newest member Noel Brownell. A big welcome to Noel who with his wife and two children own Tour of Nevada City Bike Shop.  Noel is also a successful Mortgage Broker and is sponsored by John Hensley. 
Together with Co-President Karen, she recognized two Club members with the Heart of Rotary and Quiet Rotarian Awards.

Heart of Rotary - Nicole Dillard

Nicole has a true heart for Rotary and our Club. As president as of the Nevada City Rotary Foundation, she has reactivated it, was able to put a new active board in place, selecting her replacement as the long-time president for the benefit of the club and the community. She received her next level Paul Harris Fellow level 4 this year. In addition, she provides speakers’ gifts every week whether she can attend the meeting or not, she selects a book or two pertinent the speaker and all without wanting personal recognition. Nicole supports Polio Plus with a donation box at her shop. She’s a behind the scenes worker and valued member of Nevada City Rotary. 

Quiet Rotarian - Judy Soldavini

Judy is our club’s Quiet Rotarian this year. As our club’s service director, she and her committee have made sure our meeting accommodations are comfortable, and convenient. She opened her beautiful home for Rotary informational meetings and has made it available to us in the future. Club social events would not be the same without her touch of hospitality and artistic abilities, always giving everyone the feeling of being welcome and included. Her crowning achievement for the first half of this Rotary year was pulling together her friends to decorate our homegrown pumpkins which raised through auction $1600. Congratulations, Judy!  Judy’s quiet leadership and heavy lifting behind the scenes is invaluable to our members.
