Greetings to all Nevada City Rotary members and friends,
Dear fellow Rotarians and friends,

I am looking out the window at the snow softly falling on an already-white landscape, and as of this writing, snow is forecast for another three days (at least). Already three Rotary events have been cancelled last week (Presidents’ mid-year visit with the District Governor; the Music Contest winners’ public concert; our live Thursday lunch meeting), and likely you all have had a number of personal plans canceled as well. How quickly we are reminded that we are not in complete control of things!

And yet, we are people of action, so we will go ahead and continue planning our activities. As we witnessed under Tom M’s and Cathy’s presidencies during the height of the pandemic, we are a flexible group and know how to pivot! This Thursday March 2 at 5:30 at Round Table Pizza, we will get to hear Louise Johnson’s “Craft Talk”. She will share with us her experiences as a teacher, school principal, and superintendent which she has entitled “On Any Given Day”. (Louise has also confided that she is a closet stand-up comedian, so this should be fun!).
Next week March 9, we will not be gathering at Bistro 221 for lunch because the Foundation Dinner is that evening at the Miners Foundry. (See below if you would like to join us.) A heads-up: we’ve been informed by Bistro 221 owner Melissa that her costs have gone up, so when we do meet there on March 23, our cost will increase to $23/person.

We have completed showing the 6-part video series “Climate Solutions 101”. Now it’s time to put our heads together and identify what we’ve learned, how this relates to us, and what we might do as a club for Rotary’s Seventh Area of Focus Supporting the Environment. Watch for a survey coming from your club Environmental Sustainability committee to help prompt this discussion. A program will be set aside in the next few months for this process.

Hoping you are all warm, dry, and have electricity!

In service,
Chris (and Carolyn)
