Our speaker Tuesday, Joanne Drummond, Executive Director of the Fire Safe Council of Nevada County, shed some light on several items we should be aware of and taking care of:
  • Create a 100 foot defensible space around your home
  • Register your cell phone for local emergency notification:  http:/  then look for the CodeRED link
  • Fire Safe Council help: or call the office: 530-272-1122
Club business included the following:
  • See's Candy SalesAll club members need to sell! This is our fundraiser to pay for the activities we are doing in the community. (Unless you would like to write a check for $150, thank you very much) The form is attached (click here) and will also be handed out at the club meeting on March 21. Checks are to be made out to Penn Valley Rotary Foundation and are tax deductable.  As a group we need to sell at least $500 worth of product; most items will earn the Club $3.25 - $4.10 per item. Gift certificates are great for all year round – save it for an upcoming birthday or anniversary. Your pre-order sales will end on April 4th. You can receive your goodies by Friday, April 7th for distribution. Any question – call or email Karen 909-435-6941 or   Yum Yum!!
