Dear Rotarians and Friends,
THIS WEEK - Thursday May 28
MOVED TO Rock Creek Nature Hike
Meet at 9am - Harmony Ridge Market Hwy 20
Our Rock Creek Nature Hike is always an unforgetable moment. The Seven Hills Leadership Class is paired with special needs students of Seven Hills and Union Hill Middle Schools for a special hike. The Forest Service will lead the students on a wheelchair-accessible nature hike while we Rotarians flip burgers on the grill. A special guest (Smokey or Woody) will greet us after lunch. We are expecting a larger group than prior years! All hands on deck to help serve. If you have a grill you can bring, we can always use one more. Bring your fresh cookies to share.
We will meet at 9am at John Hensley's Hwy 20 office at Harmony Ridge Market to carpool/caravan. We should wrap up around 1pm. For reference, Old 5 Mile House is directly across Hwy 20 from John's office.
If you missed our accolades from District Conference take a moment to review last week's Rotario entitled Rotario ~ Congratulations Nevada City Rotary
Sharing our recognition and thank yous was a key element of last week's meeting!
