Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community.

One of the Club’s newer community projects is the Adventures and Wine auction, now an annual event.. Nevada City Rotarians organize, advertise, and stage the entire event, including providing the venue, wine, ushers, ticket sales, prizes, venue and music. In  2015 the event is at Miners Foundry on October 23. We greatly appreciate all donations. To donate to the upcoming auction please submit a donation form. For more details view the Auction section.

For over 15 years, the Rotary Club of Nevada City has taken it upon itself to create, maintain and improve a small public nature trail that starts at downtown Nevada City called "The Miner’s Trail". This trail, offers a short walk along Deer Creek near the downtown Nevada City historic district. The Club planted trees, created rock benches and printed guides to the trail and posted access signage at the trailhead.
