Message from Juan Viejo (John Hensley)
"Hi all, All is well in Baja & hope you all are too. With friends, I was able to install new solar system in my home here ( I brought it from the lake house) much work here, but a few beach days too. It has been mostly windy & cold, but still nice. My best to all back home." Juan Viejo
Message from pP Kim
Dear Rotary Friends!
I am so excited to announce to my second family (all of you) that my husband Mike received official notice that his transfer request to work at Cal Fire Washington Ridge Camp, Nevada City WAS APPROVED! He starts very soon, March 5th! The boyz and I are beside ourselves with the great news that Daddy will be home every night. So please join me at this week's meeting as I will be bringing Champaign and Sparkling Cider to toast to the Stewart Family's new life!
Notes From Last Meeting
Kudos to the our student musicians at the meeting: Andrea Bock, Bear River, with two pieces on the flute, and Sam Dykstra, Nevada Union, with three classical guitar numbers. Both contest entrants gave the judges a difficult chore. In the end, First Place went to Andrea, however, both of the outstanding musicians will represent the Nevada City club at the area competition on April 7. While waiting for the judges to collaborate on the contest results, we learned that just about everyone in the room either plays a musical instrument or tried at one time; sounds like it's a good thing that many of us quit while ahead! A big thank you to contest chair Gayle Denney and her team for a job well done.
pP Kim Stewart chaired our well attended meeting that included five guests plus our student musicians. pP Kim made an especial welcome to Dave Fluke, Ron Knaus, John Burke and George Rebane who haven't been able to attend recently. Condolences were also expressed to Walt Stickel at the unexpected passing of his sister In New Jersey.
Robin Milam announced that plans were underway for an Off BroadStreet theatre party for their new production, "Forever Meadow Green". The other Area 4 clubs are being invited - watch for the date! Also, a couple of more Flash Mob events are in the works. You won't want to miss them!
pP and Treasurer Ellen Davis announced the board's recent decision to raise lunch prices to $14 and $6 for non-eaters effective March 7. The raise is to help cover lunches for guests in hopes of helping to balance the budget.
