Rotary Social Event and Club Around Town


5th Thursday Social


Whenever a month has 5 Thursdays, we forego our normal lunch meeting at the Woman’s Club and gather for fun and friendship with members and guests.  Tonight was one of the best, when we gathered in the back room at Buonarroti Restaurante in downtown Lincoln. In spite of the rain, we attracted 28 Rotarians and about as many guests.  In addition to adult beverages, we had an excellent selection of pizza, raviolis and bruschetta for hors d'oeuvre.





President Caron thanked us all for attending and announced that our club will donate $1,000 to the Rotary Club of Paradise Foundation to help their Rotary Club provide assistance as needed.  She urged our members to add to that amount; checks to Lincoln Rotary Club Foundation designating a donation to Paradise Rotary.   Allternately, designate District 5180 and funds will be provided to Gridley and Oroville Clubs for their support efforts. Bring payment to our next meeting or mail to the Club at Box 663 in Lincoln.   (If you are inclined to want to donate online, Click Here to use PayPal, and fill in the note with your designated recipient.) 



Art delivered the few leftover hors d’oeveres to the Foundry Youth Center a few doors away.

Club About Town


In addition to a fun Rotary Social Event, many of our club members were seen helping out around town this week as well.  Bill Cook, aka Wild Bill, sent out an e-mail mentioning that he would be heading to Gridley to help sort clothing for those that have been affected by the fires up in Paradise.  Paul  Radcliffe promptly returned the e-mail and the two headed out to put their hands to use!  After rushing home on Saturday from Gridley, Wild Bill also answered a request for help with our home town parade. Kimberly McCue and Wild Bill both helped with the hometown Holiday Parade, helping entrants stay on their marks and keep pace together.  Rotarian Stan Nader also had a busy week, starting by helping with the local food closet in town and then enjoying himself with other Rotarians at his Mayoral retirement party "fit for a farmer" good ol'  John Deere Style!
