President’s Message
Hi Everyone,
Thanks to those Penn Valley Rotarians who painted the Little Libraries on Rotary’s Work Day, 27 April 2019.  Once the doors are competed, we will begin to install them in Penn Valley.  Currently, we have identified 3 locations for these Little Libraries:  Penn Valley True Value Hardware, Western Gateway Park, and near Williams Ranch School. One other location is being scouted out.
I think the Grass Valley Brewing Company was a hit with those who participated in our 5th Tuesday of the month social outing Tuesday 30Apr2019.  The food was good.  I was told by a reliable source that the Brews were pretty good as well.  I really enjoyed the outing and we had a very good crowd, even Anna Dillavou who we don’t see very often was there.
Ivy Brott from NU’s Interact Club will be our Tuesday’s luncheon speaker.  Also, we will be wrapping flowers and delivering these flowers to our local school for Teacher’s Appreciation day.
See you on Tuesday, Player’s Pizza, at noon.
