Rotario - July 5, 2016

Dear Rotarians and Friends,   

Welcome to my inaugural Rotario newsletter. It's going to be a pleasure keeping you informed of our club activities in the coming year.

This past week, on June 29 we held the demotion party for Pres. Dave Bunje. And our esteemed presenter of the Past President's pin was PDG Dave Denny. We captured the event with the three of us in this picture.

There was a great deal of fun and games at the demotion party, but we also reminded the attendees that we have significant events in front of us.

Of course the fair booth is coming up in August, but we have lots of activities in July, including new formats for our meetings. Going forward we will have mixer social meetings on the first and third Thursdays of the month. We will have regular lunchtime meetings on the second and fourth Thursdays.

With that in mind look at the schedule of meetings and events coming up in the near future listed below.

Due to the terrific participation of this task force the estimated three hour job of cleaning scrubbing, taking inventory, landscaping, and painting was reduced to two hours. It was a super team effort!!

The schedule of meetings and events coming up in the near future are listed below.

July 7 First Thursday Social Barbara Jenness of Wheyward Girl Creamery

Join us this Thursday as Barbara Jenness talks about Nevada City's newest and only Cheese Shop!  Wheyward girl offers a fabulous selection of cheeses from around the world including California and has plans to produce their own cheeses.  If you haven't discovered Wheyward Girl yet, it is right next door to Three Forks Brewery on Commercial Street, Nevada City!

Don't miss our Fair Work Party this Saturday July 9 ... lots of scrubbing and simple repairs!  All hands on deck!  Please let Walt know if you have an 8 ft ladder you can bring so we can service the swamp cooler!
