Dear Rotarians and Friends,
Welcome to our latest Rotario newsletter. Once again it is a pleasure keeping you informed of our club activities in the coming weeks.
This Week : Tim Foley, Nevada City Police Chief
Timothy Foley currently serves as the Chief of Police in Nevada City.
Previously, he had a 32 year career with the San Francisco Police Department. During his time with the SFPD, he served in a variety of assignments in the Patrol, Investigation, Airport, and Administration Bureaus. During his career he was awarded a Silver Medal of Valor, 6 Meritorious Conduct Awards, and numerous Department Commendations.
Throughout his career he remained engaged as a community oriented policing leader, developing numerous programs that reduced crime, improved neighborhoods and strengthened ties between law enforcement and the community such as the SFPD Wilderness Adventure Youth Program, Walk with the Captain, and the Tenderloin Youth Council. Ultimately he received special designation as a Community Policing Lieutenant.
In the final years of his career with the SFPD, he was assigned to the Training Division as the Officer in Charge of the Professional Development Section responsible for managing all ongoing training for department personnel. Tim earned his Bachelor's degree in Management from St. Mary's College.
Last Week : Trip Report from Baja Work Project Team
In Pres. Walt's absence, Cathy Wilcox-Barnes chaired the meeting in the restaurant area, while Dennis Geare set up the projector. Then Carolyn Feuille and Cathy shared this year’s Los Barriles experience through stories and photographs. This year the team was able to meet students at the Albergues and actually worked side by side with some of the parents who also volunteered. Their presentation had many of us wishing we had gone and wanting to participate next year ! Included in the presentation was a nice photo from Carolyn of a 4-Way Test banner in Spanish (pictured on the left). Great job! Gracias a los todos!!!!
