Welcome to the Rotary Club of Quincy
Rotarian Jim Boland distributed dictionaries to over seventy 3rd graders at Quincy Elementary -Alder campus with the help of Chris Parent, CHP Commander, and Sergeant Rich Morin. The students went right to work looking up words and were very appreciative.
 
 
 
Twelve proud Rotarians joined in the fun of preparing and serving a delicious lasagna dinner to over 80 community members, including some last minute Feather River College students. Join us in the Spring when we go "round two"! 
 
 
President Dwight Pierson presented Lisa Kelly with the Heart of Rotary Award for the 20-21 year. Kelly was instrumental in keeping our club active while we relied on Zoom for our meetings, fund raisers. youth programs, and socialization. Congratulations Lisa for your perseverance and service!
 
 
 
Dr. April Leonardo kept the audience spellbound as she shared her harrowing experiences while preparing for and climbing Mt. Everest . She told stories that required the utmost in patience and a tolerance for suffering. There was even one time when she did not think she would live to tell her story. We are all grateful to April for her courage and willingness to share her story. 
Rotarians Doug Prouty, Pete Hochrein, KarenPierson, Dwight Pierson, Beth Reid, and Fred Surber worked Saturday morning to clean up  Quincy Rotary's section of Highway 70 north of Feather River College. 
 
 
 
 
 
Brenda Roccucci was honored in a skit about women's suffrage, It was noted that Quincy Rotary does not have a proportionate number of women members.  
After debating if the weather would be an obstacle to pick up the trash  along Highway 70 in East Quincy, nine energetic Rotarians showed up and completed the task.  Chief Supervisor Fred Surber once again provided outstanding guidance on the areas in need of attention.  The Rotary Club of Quincy has assumed responsibility for several sections of Highway 70 as part of their community service. Rotarians pictured below include: Fred Surber, John Sheehan, Karen Kleven, Herschel Beail, Kory Felker, Dwight Pierson, Karen Pierson, and Andy Ryback. (David Little had to leave early).   
After months of not being present at Quincy Rotary Club meetings, Mr. Felker proudly holds the Rotary Bell.  Shortly after becoming President, Mr. Felker found that the bell had disappeared during his first meeting. Mr. Felker made earnest efforts to locate the Bell throughout the year and recently made an emotional plea for the Bell to return.  The two were reunited though it took a significant donation to the Quincy Polio Fund for that to happen. Mr. Bell is excited to be back at our meetings. 
 
 
 
All President-Elects must survey their members for input in setting goals for next year. Incoming Public Relations Chair Karen Pierson has volunteered to contact every Rotarian personally to hear members responses to the following questions:
 
What do you enjoy most about being a Rotarian?
 
What suggestions do you have to improve Quincy Rotary? (meetings, community service, programs, etc.)
 
What do you want our Rotary Club to do more of in the future?
 
Which form of communications do you prefer for club news?
 
     _____Facebook
     _____Quincy Rotary website
     _____Bulletin (printed or emailed)
     _____Plumas County News (online)

Well here I sit and wait to attend a Rotary meeting n Portola.  Oh how I yearn to be part of the Rotary Club of Quincy, but it seems I have been forgotten!  For months I have sat in closets, trunks of cars, and even garage shelves with no interaction with Quincy Rotarians.  Lately I was lucky to be able to travel through the mercy of a good friend.  Though my travels have been memorable, I constantly think of the many times I was placed on the podium in the Mineral Building awaiting the gavel hitting my bronze body resulting in a glorious and welcoming sound to all of you.  My adventures will continue with the hope that someday Kory will find me.  I know he has tried but has received little help.  I will try to communicate with all of you whenever possible!
 
The Rotary Closet is set to open March 1! Teachers will be able to utilize the Closet to assist students who are in need of school supplies and protective clothing. To date the following items may be found in the Closet: coats, hats, mittens, boots, socks, umbrellas, personal hygiene items, and assorted school supplies. Earlier in the school year, teachers were asked what items would be most needed, and additional items may be added at any time. Donations from Rotarians and community members are welcome. New items are preferred but good used items such as boots, snow pants, and rain gear will always be needed. Cash donations are also greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, contact Dwight Pierson at dwightpierson@gmail.com or 641 583 0744.  
 
 
Last Monday, Erik received his one year plaque and we heard from our REGL students who shared their experiences of attending the recent REGL camp.
 
Thank you Greenhorn Guest Ranch for your awesome hospitality on Monday!! We had an awesome time and the dinner was delicious!!
 
Last week, we welcomed District Governor Randy Van Tassell to Quincy Rotary. Herschel Beail was the recipient of the Silent Rotarian Award for all his work in setting up and taking down the Mineral Building each Monday, while Ray Lewis won the Community Service Award. And, even better, President Brenda Roccucci got her bell back. Since Andrew “the persuasive pastor” was the last person the bell was seen with, Deputy Carson Wingfiled arrested him, although he was quickly released (all in good fun with lots of laughter).
 
 
Mr. Bell was having a little existential crisis, so he stopped by Rev. Andrew's office for some counseling. Seems like Mr. Bell is really starting to miss us and has been feeling quite lonely lately.
 
Last meeting, Leanne from Greenville presented a service opportunity to help rebuild the Greenville playground followed by District Attorney David Hollister presenting the state of the DA’s office.
 
 
Mr. Bell has been out and about again!!
 
 
 
 
Last week, Aly Kinne talked about Rethink Industries and Hope Recovery Center.
 
 
Last week, some of our county’s 4H youth shared about their animals and a few brought their animals. Come out and see them this week at the Plumas-Sierra County Fair!!
 
 
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.
