Distinguished Citizen Dinner
By Lindy Beatie
Our Penn Valley Rotary fundraiser -  Distinguished Citizen Dinner, will honor retiring Supervisor Hank Weston on March 29, 2019 at The Clubhouse at Lake Wildwood.  Invitations will go out by the first of the month. Funds raised from this dinner will go to support youth activities in the Penn Valley area, such as the Rotary Eighth Grade Leadership (REGL) program for Ready Springs students, Rotary Youth Leadership program supporting local high school students, Penn Valley Little League and team building programs at Penn Valley schools called "Breaking down the Walls". Cost of the dinner (which includes a donation) is $80 per person, and there is also a sponsorship packet for $250 which includes two tickets, an ad in the program and two drink tickets. For more information, contact Lindy Beatie at 
Little Libraries Spark Interest
Lindy Beatie gave a presentation on the Little Libraries, small stand alone book cupboards that is voluntary stocked and kept. Our Club will be working to build at least six Little Libraries to be placed around the community - the Club was able to list nine local businesses where they thought a book exchange would be useful. Gordon Beatie is willing to cut the wood, club members are needed to assemble, paint and stock the libraries as well as talk with community organizations and businesses to adopt a Little Library on their business grounds. Joanie Bumpus, Club Community Service Chair, will lead this project but your support is needed.
