More Masks! December 12 - 9:30am Dave Robinson's
With the increase in COVID-19 cases in Nevada County, California, and the entire USA, we see the ongoing need to get face masks to members of our community who need them. On Saturday, December 12, we will hold another drive-through mask give-away at Dave Robinson’s Auto Repair shop on Zion Street, next door to SPD. We are planning to open from 9:30am to 11:00am or the until all masks have been given away if demand is as high as it has been. We intend to be cleaned up and out BEFORE the TOY RUN leaves the Rood Center at noon. Thanks once again to Susie, Carolyn Inglis, Nevada County Mask Warriors, and all the others who are working to make this give-away possible.
We have a good Club crew who have RSVPed to participate in the mask give away. Everyone will wear masks and gloves and will use PikStik/grabbers to maintain safe social distancing.Cathy and Robin announced the Dec 12th mask giveaway on KNCO with Tom Fitzsimmons on Friday. We also stated that if the Sacramento Region moves into a Stay-At-Home order related to ICU capacity, we will postpone to a later date.
Virtual International Project Fairs
Good news! We have the unique opportunity of participating in virtual Project Fairs in this Rotary year. The fairs are on Zoom and open to all Rotarians, at no cost. This arrangement is ideal for learning how project fairs work without leaving the comfort of your home and with no travel expenses. So, take advantage! Given the recent double hurricanes hitting Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala, Rotary's focus and assistance will never have been more important.
The two forthcoming project fairs in Rotary Districts 4250, 4240, and 4271:
* Uniendo America, January 28-30 in Panama City
* February 5-12 in Medellín, Colombia
Registration and project details from the fair organizers are forthcoming. Stay tuned!!
Please contact Carolyn Feuille if you have questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Rotary Mid-Years Dues are Due
We are rapidly approaching mid-point in our Rotary year! For those of you who chose to pay dues in two increments, your balance of $85.50 ($171 / 2) is due before January 1, 2021. Watch for an invoice from Treasurer Tom amd please pay promptly.
Your Happy/Sad Shares make a difference!
Thank you Treasurer Tom Ryan for your ongoing diligence with our finances. And thank you Club members for following the Four Way Test with your pledges to our Club! If you have questions, Tom R is happy to discuss your statement with you.
Your Happy/Sad shares give us glimpses of what is going on in your life beyond Rotary. They are special moments together especially since so much of our time is on Zoom. Your associated "bucks" provide a base for us to continue our special services to our community and beyond. Thanks for sharing you!
Stay connected and informed
Robin monitors our email@example.com email. You can direct questions to that email or to me. As we learn more and to stay in touch, we will send out regular or more frequent Rotarios.
