Our club is hard at it this summer!

We not only have had several changes under our new co-presidents, all throughout July we’ve had outstanding speakers and educational entertainment at our meetings, for which we thank Chris and Nancy. 
This Thursday, our speaker is Sean Grayson, the newly hired City Manager of Nevada City.  I expect we’ll learn quite a bit about what it takes to keep a small-town government running smoothly.  We’ll be at The National Hotel, our club’s old “stomping grounds” for many years. (And now it’s quite fashionably furnished and decorated.)
DG Jeff and Jane Gabriel

August 11 meeting at 12:15 pm.:  Jeff Gabriel, our District Governor, will be coming on his official visit with his wife Jane.  Prior to our lunch meeting, Cathy Wilcox-Barnes will lead them on a short historic tour of Nevada City, which we can join as we like. After lunch Jeff will meet with the Board and Officers. Jeff is a very personable leader and says he and Jane are really looking forward to meeting with all of us.  Come one, come all – bring guests!
August 25 meeting at 12:15:  Our special speaker & visitor is none other than Evani Radiya-Dixit, our Global Scholar who’s just returned from Cambridge, England where she’s been conducting research on police use of facial recognition technology.
Our club’s volunteers reach more and more people, including the California CareForce clinicians and volunteers, the Children’s Festival, the school supplies donation through Community Beyond Violence which served at least 30 Kids in Area 4, and the ongoing plastics pick-up campaign.  Thank you all!!!  Read more details in our Nevada City Rotary Club Stories...
