Upon advice today from the Nevada County health department, the Hungry Games event scheduled for Sunday in the Miners Foundry has been postponed due to concerns relating to the coronavirus.

The Nevada County Rotary event has been rescheduled for Valentine's Day, February 14,2021 in Miners Foundry from 5 to 8 pm. All tickets, including the raffle for 12 $100 restaurant meals, will be honored at that event

Rotary has been following directives from Ryan Gruver, Agency Director of the County Health and Human services, who said the state now suggests that events like the Hungry Games should be canceled or postponed.

We appreciate the generous support our community extends to Rotary and specifically Nevada City Rotary. We recognize that postponing has a direct impact on our chefs at The Ham Stand and Miners Foundry Cultural Center as well as all our partner vendors.  We encourage our community to patronize and support them through this challenging period.

There's something that all Rotary club members have in common: We take action. As community volunteers, we reach out to neighbors in need. We build, support, and organize. We save lives. We work locally and globally.

The main objective of Rotary is service -- in the community, the workplace and the world. Around the world and around the corner, the 1.2 million men and women of Rotary

  • Get involved in their communities
  • Connect with other professionals
  • Share their time and experience with young people
  • Support global causes, such as eradicating polio
  • Use their skills to help others

Whether you're a veteran volunteer or new to community service, Rotary is looking for people like you. Contact us for more information about Rotary and how to join a club in your area.
