Spread the word! Help Sponsor Seven Hills Students at NatureBridge Science Camp
Nevada CIty Rotary is proud to be sponsoring students in their annual Seven Hills Nature Bridge Science Camp in January. In addition to sponsoring 5 students, we have set up a Giving Trail Campaign so that others can also support the students as Nature Bridge Camp sponsors. Any amount of support is appreciated - just a few dollars or support one or more students at $440 per student. We are asking fellow Rotarians to spread the word by forwarding the separate related email with details of the Seven Hills Nature Bridge Science camp funding campaign.
Want to be a sponsor yourself? You can DONATE NOW at GivingTrail.org.
A BIG THANK YOU
Carolyn Inglis created a Giving Tuesday campaign for Nevada City Rotary Fountain and raised $565 for the Foundation in one day! Some donations came from you, our Club members, and a number from friends of friends!

Los Barriles, Baja Here We Come!
Nevada City Rotary is unfolding plans for our fourth trip to Los Barriles. Again we will partner with our Los Barriles Twin Club on a very special project. Last year the team did diabetes and blood screening for students at East Cape Medical Clinic and a local school. Everyone was very moved by the experience with the children.
Project focus: This year's team is going to East Cape Community Vision Center in Los Barriles to assist in conducting secondary (follow-up) vision screening for children and adults. This will enable East Cape Community Vision Center's medical staff to prescribe and fabricate eye glasses with corrective lenses.
For fun: Work includes play too! Chris and Christine Geyer will again host a dinner for all participants; on Sunday go to the beach/swim, outings in off-road vehicles/ATV’s, local tourism, shopping, and getting to know your counterparts in the Los Barriles club
Dates: March 21 travel day, March 22-23 work days at the Vision Center, March 24 R & R day with explorations, shopping, the beach, etc. Return home March 25 or 26 (return in time to participate in the Area music contest March 27).
Meeting: We will get together to discuss travel logistics in January.
Girls Who Code at Seven Hills
