Welcome to the Rotary Club of Quincy
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.
 
 
 
 
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!
