Last Week
A toast to Delia Orduna, Director of Sales and Special Events at the Nevada City Winery, for the wine tasting program last week! Delia shared three award wining wines and the background on each one. The three wines presented were Chardonnay, Gewurtztraminer, and Zinfandel - all excellent choices. It was a most unusual program as well as very enjoyable! Thanks to Treasurer pP Ellen Davis for inviting her coworker to share with us in more ways than one....
President Dennis' bell suddenly reappeared. The gang of thieves are going easy these days! Guests were pP David Bunje and Marty Dinwiddie. The lucky winner of the raffle was Janis Aydelott who, much to her chagrin, didn't select the matching card.
Proposed New Member
pP David Bunje has been proposed by pP Bob Buhlis to be readmitted to the Rotary Club of Nevada City. Anyone having a reason why David should no be admitted has seven days to notify Membership Chair pP Carolyn Inglis.
