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: Club Music Contest- MOVED TO LUNCH MEETING
Last Week: Jesse Locks - Director of Nevada City Film Festival
Jesse was able to provide us with a brief video showing us a bit of the history of the Nevada City Film Festival and it's relationship with the Miners Foundry. Additionally, Jesse was able to tell us how this festival has grown and is receiving some national recognition not unlike some of the early press releases from the early years of the Sundance Film Festival, which is now world-famous. One example of the growth that the NCFF is experiencing is the fact that the Magic Theater which is one of the small venues used by the Festival will be expanding to have two screens. This film Festival looks for lots of volunteers and is scheduled for September of this year. Jesse hopes that some of us Rotarians will participate.. Pictured is Pres. Walt with Jesse.

Some of our Club-sponsored youth have additional accomplishments !
Youth Chairman Dave Bunje was pleased to report that the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools office recently held a Writing Tournament for 7th and 8th grade students, and three youths in our club-sponsored activities scored quite well. They are:
Gianna Rose (2016 REGLE participant, Forest Charter School): Creative Writing, Letter Writing
Emma Sheffo (Girls Who Code club member, Twin Ridges Home Study): Expository Writing, Creative Writing
Lucy Lee Jens (Girls Who Code club member, Seven Hills School): SWEEPSTAKES winner, Expository Writing, Letter Writing
Outreach with youth is a most enjoyable form of service in Rotary. Thank you team! These are talented and fun young women, illustrating the caliber of youth in our programs. Look for their names in the news again as the years go by!
