Celebrating the Joy of Opportunities

Fellow Rotarians, friends and family,

The celebration continues as this Rotary year keeps getting better!  We received word Friday morning that Rotary International has approved our Global Grant Scholarship application for Evani Radiya-Dixit.  Co-President Elect Tom Ryan has been working diligently for the past several weeks to coordinate with Bill Boon and Wyn Spiller at the District level as they fulfilled all the requirements of The Rotary Foundation in completing the Grant application.

Thanks Tom - excellent work!

Our Club's grant team moving forward is Tom R, Carolyn F, and me. We will provide updates throughout the year as we hear from Evani.

It has been a great year, and my Demotion Party was a perfect ending.  What a treat to come together as a group and be able to socialize, party, and enjoy a great dinner!  Chris and Bill's lovely front yard was a beautiful setting for making deals!

Honoring your Generosity through Rotary!

To open the evening, I had the privilege of recognizing several members of our Club for their contributions. Chris Newsom made a special presentation to John Hensley to recognize his becoming a Rotary Foundation Major Donor with John Zooming in from Baja.  I presented Nancy Knaus with a Paul Harris+1, Karen McDonald with a Paul Harris+6, and Nancy (Vanna) Kemp with her PolioPlus Society certificate and pin. Congratulations to each of you!  Thanks to you and all our other Club members who contribute so much to support the great work of Rotary.

Special thanks to the creative team of Cathy, Chris, Judy, Tom R, Dennis, Nancy, Walt, Lynda and Robin who put together our evening of fun and festivities. The skit was brilliant and hilarious!  Robin has put together a photo montage to let us share the evening with all who could not be there--and for those who were! A BIG thank you to Chris and Bill for opening your home and hosting our first and only face to face meeting of the year! 

Let's Make a Deal!!!

COVID currency or new glamping equipment?

A true fan or make that two!

Thank you all for the very thoughtful presentation of your generous gifts to me. 

Before Rotary there was Grass Valley Group ... and 8" floppy disks!

Wow this Linksys router would have made our Zoom meetings really fly!

Lots of warm fellowship among friends ...

A special congratulations to Doug and Karen McDonald and Judy Soldavini and George Roberts who celebrated their wedding anniversaries at our Demotion Party!

Forget the screens, we don’t have to Zoom any more!

AG 4 Lindy Beatie came bearing lots of awards - including a crown, cape and scepter for Prez Tom thanks to our strong attendance at RALLEY 2021.

King for a Night!

Tom Ryan is anointed for his term as Co-President with Dave Denney as they prepare to “Serve to Change Lives."

PDG/PP/PE Dave Zoomed in with Aloha greetings ...

Thanks again to all our Club members, who pitched in to make this a strong year.

Tom and Dave are set to lead.  Tom Ryan now has the bell and both their gavels. They have organized a strong Board which the Club has officially elected!

Again congratulations Nevada City Rotary!  Thank you for your service and friendship through our one-of-a-kind year -- filled with exceptional opportunities!

Past Prez Tom!
