Welcome to the Quincy Rotary Club
Area Speech and Music Contests

Miles and Sylvia at the Area 2 Speech and Music Contest held at the Loyalton Museum on April 14, 2018. They both took 2nd last year at the District Conference. They will do great this year.


Daniel Lovato and Leanne Schramel give Quincy Rotary an update on the US Forest Service activities in our area.


We welcomed two new members, Ray Lewis, far left, and Todd Aylward, far right, pictured with current president Richard Stockton and president elect Rick Leonhardt. Welcome
It was an ENTHRALLING fireside for Ray and Todd, despite that they still joined.  Great attendance by Rotary members........ maybe because it counted as a make-up.

On Monday, March 19, Quincy Rotary hosted our annual music contest. Thanks to all our participants, Sylvia, Emily, Jacek, Kristina, and Tristan, as well as Johnene for accompying on piano and Suzan for her work in coordinating the contest.

He will move on to compete in the Area Level competition to be hosted by the Loyalton Club on April 14. Second place was won by Ben Hoffman who received $175 (second from left).
