Monday, October 15 – We had a great Foundation Dinner with 64 in attendance from Portola, Greenville and Quincy Rotary Clubs. The Quincy Rotary Club presented 10 Paul Harris Fellows. New Fellows included: John Breaux, Karen Kleven, Tim Gallagher, Debbie DeSelle, and Julie Hochrein. 2 Time Fellows included: Clay Dyrr (Thelma), Jim Boland, David Adrian, and Pete Hochrein. 3 Time Fellow included: David Windle.  Sam “Woody” Wilbanks along with Club Presidents awarded “The Rotary Foundation District Service Awards” to Bob Edwards – Quincy, Bob Conen – Portola, and Ken Tucker – Greenville. 

Scott Kellerman from the Rotary Club of Nevada City Sunrise gave an inspiring program on his work with the Batwa pygmies in Uganda.  He has immensely improved the standard of living for these wonderful people.  He is an inspiration of what “Peace through Service” really means.

The wine was raffled off with the winners being: Pierson family, Gallagher, Ryback.  The raffle raised over $700 for Polio Plus!!
