Welcome to the Rotary Club of Quincy
Mr. Bell went on a sailing adventure.   Mr Bell came in handy as an additional Anchor.
The Adventures of Mr. Bell
Checking for Bills at the Post Office with Darren.
Soliciting free Tax advice from John.
Looks like Mr. Bell is hanging around Pioneer RV Park and with Fred in the greenhouses.
Charter Night
A wonderful charter night dinner with our guest speaker, Larry Kendrick. Larry spoke about the Four-Way test and how it can be applied in all we do.
Golf Tournament
It was a beautiful warm sunny day at Plumas Pines for a full field, with plenty of standby teams.  This kickstart of summer event is our major fundraiser and fun was had by all.  Be sure to get your foursomes in early next year to assure a spot.  
Thank you everyone who came out to the fairgrounds Saturday to help demolish the old pig pens in the swine barn. Also got to see the upgraded electrical in the beef barn.
Congratulations to Sophia from Portola on moving onto the district speech contest, and Sylvia from Quincy on moving onto the district music contest in May. And a big thank you to everyone who participated and Community United Methodist Church, Quincy for hosting this year.
We welcomed Ryan Tompkins, UC Extension Natural Resource and Forestry Advisor, as he talked about The Role of Fire: Forestry and Prescribed Burning.
Two weeks ago, our president elect Brenda got to run the meeting and did a fantastic job in Ricks absence. Maggie Guzman from PG&E was our presenter. Last week, we all shared the favorite part of our vocation and Carson and Moorea received their blue badges. Tomorrow, we get a preview of FRC’s production of Chicago which will play at the West-End Theatre in May. See you at noon tomorrow in the Mineral Building.
Last regular meeting on February 11, we had James Shipp from the Recreation & Parks Department present on the new batting cages project. We hope to help with some of the labor on this project and will have more information when it becomes available.
This last meeting, we wished our two exchange students from Australia, Phoebe and Cate all the best as they head back to Australia. For our program, Phoebe and Cate shared about life and culture in Australia.

Highlights from yesterday’s meeting, as Carson Wingfield from the Plumas County Sheriff presented disaster preparedness. 

Although Jim “Power to the People” might get his pic on the wall for ringing the Salvation Army bell at the post office 😉 (although many thanks to those who have volunteered to ring).

Rotary Foundation Information
As Foundation Chair, I wanted to take this opportunity to perhaps clarify and educate our newest members about how our Club relates to The Rotary Foundation.  The Foundation encourages all Clubs to work towards having each member contribute at least $100 to the Foundation Annual Fund.  This fund is what does the bulk of the work for the Foundation, both locally and around the world.  Our Club has almost all members that contribute $100 annually. 
A second way that our Club relates to the Foundation is with regard to Rotary International's effort to eliminate polio throughout the world.  This has been a 30 year effort that is almost there.  This effort is not funded with the Annual Fund contributions mentioned above. Each Club is encouraged to contribute $2,000 annually toward this effort. Our annual contribution is funded from three sources: Donations received from the public at our annual solicitation at Plumas County's Drive-Thru Flu Clinic, our weekly 50/50 raffle and our monthly wine raffle. We need for each of those sources to do their share of the work in order for us to meet our $2,000 goal.  Please buy 50/50 and wine raffle tickets each week!
Highlights from last week’s meeting with keynote speaker Greg Williams from Sierra Buttes Trail Stewards, Rick Foster and John DeSelle’s Paul Harris Plus One Pins, and receiving funds. See you at Noon on Monday in the Mineral Building.
Highway Cleanup
The Rotary Club of Quincy was out this morning cleaning up our highways. One team took the Lee Summit section and another team took the Indian Hill section.

2.    Treasure Report – John Breaux
John provided a P & L showing all income and expenses for last year, he would like to get together with Rick and propose changes to the look and feel of the current P&L, Brenda and Richard both offered to be available and attend that meeting.  John mentioned that he is creating a new check request form to be used it will include an area to designate what budget line item to debit the funds from.  Brenda reported that all accounts at Plumas Bank have been updated with the correct signers.  Richard presented a receipt for the pizza lunch provided at the walk out meeting, the board decided to reimburse Richard and give a credit to all members for that meal. Brenda asked John if he had made out the check to the Quincy Little League for $250 as approved by the Board on 7-16-18, John said it may be in the stack of checks he signed today but would double check and deliver it to Plumas Bank for deposit into the account set up for Quincy Little League.  Rick updated us on the Captain Carl $5,000 donation that has been earmarked for the Fairgrounds project:  Orin and Rick performed a walkthrough of the pig barn, we will be replacing all outer pig panels, the interior pen panels have water and electrical which would be too costly to replace at this time.  Rick contacted a company his family has used for years out of Fallen, they gave an estimate between $4,000-$5,000 for the pens.  Keven Moore and Oran Morrison have offered to do the electrical work at no cost to the club.
