Quote of the Week
Love is when he gives you a piece of your soul, that you never knew was missing.
Torquato Tasso

Last Week
A highlight of last week's meeting was the induction of returning Rotarian pP Dave Bunje upon his retirement as a pastor in The United Methodist Church. Congratulations on your retirement, Dave, and welcome back to the Rotary Club of Nevada City!

Forget your management practices and develop your leadership skills to achieve teamwork in Rotary was the message from Ruth Schwartz, last week's speaker. This is the second time that Ruth from High Performance Advocates has given an inspiring presentation at one of our meetings. At the end of her presentation, Ruth held a drawing for one of her recommended readings which was won by David Fluke. Maybe at a future meeting David will give us a book review?

Outside of our speaker, our solo guest was Carolyn Feuille, guest of pP Bob Buhlis. This was Carolyn's second visit as she learns more about Rotary and all the things we do. John Hensley was the raffle winner, but didn't select the right card. Maybe next time, John.

Adventures & Wine
Our fundraiser is just 1 week away and things are looking great.
We still have a need for some more volunteers to work the event. Can you think of anyone?
