Speech and Music Contest
 
The Area Speech and Music Contest is April 19th so Dean has scheduled the local contest on Tuesday, March 27th from 3:00-5:00.  The Speech contest would be from 3:00 to 3:45 and Music from 4:00-4:45 at North Tahoe High School. 
 
Patti and Karen thought we should all go to dinner following the contest.  Restaurant to be determined.
 
 
Doug McDonald, the Governor of Rotary District 5190, and his lovely wife Karen, visited out Club on November. 7.  They met with the Rotary Board and then joined us at our regular meeting.  The Governor had many helpful suggestions to help us grow our Club.  He also gave a relevant and uplifting speech to all of our members.  Governor McDonald then presented Rotarian, Jim Fleming, with what he termed as the Quiet Rotarian Award.  This award is given to Rotarians who are always available to help with Community Service Projects or whatever the Club requires without necessarily being recognized for all of his contributions.
Santa's Sledding Party, held on Dec. 9, was a huge community service success.  Rotary fed approximately 300-400 people a free breakfast of sausage and pancakes and Santa handed out over 300 gifts to children.  The TCPUD provided free ice skating, as there was no snow for sledding. 
During our October 3rd Sal Sbranti and Gordon Gravelle joined our dinner meeting and presented their very successful Empowerment Project. This project focuses on empowering young women, beginning in 8th grade and goes through high school. The program introduces young girls to professional women in multiple industries to show them that their is no limit to their potential.
