Dear Rotary members and friends,

Happy 2023!

We hope you had a relaxing and warm Christmas season with friends and family.  And now we are looking forward to a very active and service-filled year.  Already many of our members are gearing up for our coming activities:  the sewing circle working on the Menstrual Hygiene Project is starting to meet, the trip to our partner club in Los Barriles, Baja CA del Sur is being planned, and the Environmental Committee will soon be planning our second Lithium Rechargeable Battery Collection for April, just to name a few.
Your co-presidents set several goals for the club at the beginning of our year; one of them was to increase our club by five members by June 2023. With the induction of Dan Foss, Jim Bair, Louise Johnson, and next week Alison Lehman (see below), we are nearly there!  Remember, the best way to grow our club is for YOU to tell your friends why you love being a Rotarian—and then invite them to attend one of our events.
Our most exciting news is that our Nominating Committee has come up with a slate of officer candidates for the coming ’23-’24 Rotary year, and we are thrilled to let you know who they are:
Karen Mc Donald:  July-October 2023 (Karen will serve as Administrative President for RI communications)
Cathy Wilcox-Barnes:   Nov. 2023-Feb. 2024
Doug McDonald:  March-June 2024 (and Doug will also serve as our president-elect, for the year 2024-25!)
Robin Milam has graciously agreed to continue as secretary, and Tom Ryan as treasurer.
These candidates need to be voted on by our Club, so we will be proposing them at this week’s meeting on Thursday Jan. 5, 2023, 5:30pm, at the Round Table Pizza.  Please join us for the vote.
Then we will have a fun time hearing from the ACME Robotics, Inc team we sponsor and who will be updating us that evening! Many will remember ACME’s last live visit at Trolley Junction to show off their 2020 robot. (Last year the team joined us via zoom!) 
Wishing us all a GREAT 2023 in Rotary service!
Chris (and Carolyn)

RYLA Students Jason Lehman and Jessica Lake
Each summer Rotary Youth Leadership Awakening (RYLA) offers an intense, transformative experience for High School students from across Northern California and Nevada. Nevada City Rotary was proud to host Jason Lehman from Ghidotti Early College High School and  Jessica Lake from Nevada Union  at Camp RYLA (III) this summer. 
Alison Lehman joined us for lunch with her son Jason when he spoke to our club about his RYLA experience.

Return to Los Barriles for Health Screening
Come join us for our club’s 7th International project with the Rotary Club of Los Barriles, Cabo del Este March 14 through March18, 2023.  Los Barriles is a small town about 45 miles north of San Jose Del Cabo airport on the Sea of Cortez. Members, friends, and families are again invited to participate.
During our last three visits, more than 400 school children in the town of Los Barriles and families in remote outlying areas were screened for glucose levels - as a precursor for diabetes - blood pressure, vision and dental. Records were kept and follow-up visits were held for those with immediate medical needs. The Rotarians brought eyeglasses to distribute to those needing them for reading. In addition to the town of Los Barriles, the volunteers also drove to the isolated communities of El Cardinal, El Campamento and San Bartolo where there is no health care. 
Paul Boch is managing our project.  Please contact Paul for more details:Tel. 530-712-7273  Email:
