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 : Lunch with Steve Soloman - It was well-attended !
On Monday, Steven Solomon, Senior Annual Giving Officer - The Rotary Foundation, spoke from the heart about his extraordinary life and his gratitude for the many ways Rotary opened doors for him around the world working with Jane Goodall, Desmond Tutu, and so many others. Among numerous roles, Steven was a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar to South Africa. While the Grass Valley club hosted this lunch event, over 60 people from our 5 area clubs attended, including seven of our club members. Pictured are Steven and Wyn Spiller, Zone 25 Regional Foundation Coordinator It was a great meeting!
And speaking of The Rotary Foundation (TRF), if you haven't already made a contribution this year, we encourage each of our members to make a donation to the Foundation. Please know that a donation of any size is welcome and there are multiple ways to give. The Foundation started 100 years ago with a $26.50 donation. In celebration of The Rotary Foundation's Centennial year we are encouraging every member to consider contributing at least $26.50. Our overall goal is to average a $100 donation per member. Several of our members are Bequest Society members who have included Rotary in their will or estate planning. Thank you for your consideration of this opportunity.
As result of this change in scheduling, there will NOT be a Lunch Meeting on Thursday March 9.
Last week : Mixer with LeeAnn Brook - local artist and author
Contemporary landscape painter LeeAnn Brook entertained our club members with a review of her history in the art business, both on the creative aspects and the marketing side. She told us much about the history of her studio, where she not only works creating her pieces of art but marketing them as well. Of course, she invited our club members to stop by whenever possible, since her office/studio is very close by the National Hotel. LeeAnn's Studio is at the corner of Pine St. and Spring St. in Nevada City.
