Rotario - August 2, 2016

Dear Rotarians and Friends,   

Welcome to my latest Rotario newsletter. Once again it is a pleasure keeping you informed of our club activities in the coming weeks.

Thursday on Treat Street
Nevada City Rotary Annual Fair Picnic
5:30pm August 4

Join us Thursday August 4 at 5:30pm for our Annual Pre-Fair Family Picnic in front of our booth on Treat Street.  New this year we are serving Shredded Chicken sandwiches instead of Meatball Sandwiches! Tom Coleman is providing Pulled Pork BBQ and shredded chicken sandwiches. Rotarians bring your choice of dessert or a veggie dish to share and your choice of beverages. Competition for best table decoration!  This year's Fair Theme is Kick it Up! Our Fair picnic is always lots of fun.  Families are invited.  Meet our RYLA students. 

Walt is finalizing the Fair work schedule.  If you have not finalized your shifts, please  contact Walt at 530-478-5793.

At the picnic, we will distribute your tickets for Fair Week so you get free entry into the Fair the days you work our booth.  Please note, the Fair does not provide parking passes.  

Last week July 28 Lunch Meeting - Supervisor Nate Beason explained the the processes involved for enacting change as a function of the Board of Supervisors.  Nate also shared some colorful stories  regarding his many yerars of public service.
