The Golden Empire Sams held their August camp out at Dance Country RV Park, in McCloud with 11 member couples and two guest couples attending. The group enjoyed cowboy omelets and taco salad on Monday provided by trail bosses, Paul and Sherrie Rankin. They also enjoyed a scenic walk along the river, playing golf and games around the campsite. Our next outing is scheduled for Sept. 13-16, at Woodson Bridge RV Park, in Corning. If you have an RV and are interested in learning more about a Good Sam Club or attending our next outing at Woodson Bridge, call Don Tremewan at 273-9251.

Native Daughters/ Manzanita Parlor

Hurrah, the replacement for the California Bear Flag, which was the wrong size, has been placed on the flagpole at the outpatient wing of Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital and is flying over the Golden Freeway.

At a recent meeting after the membership applications were read and plans for the annual patio potluck made, retiring President Yvonne Hughes announced “everyone to the banquet room.” Yes, it was a surprise party for longtime member Brita Rozynski. In 60 years she has served in every office and is now the treasurer and historian. Congratulations, Brita.

Bud and Todi happily offered their patio for our potluck, and it was enjoyable affair for old and new members. Some members rallied to support the Nevada County Fair. Cheryl Morden, Janie Syzmanski, and Elsie Peard won ribbons at the Floriculture building.

Young ladies born in California who are over 16 years are eligible to join this statewide organization. We need someone to help on the Children’s Foundation, which provides help to needy middle-income families. For more information, call 273-6767 or 273-9641.

Nevada City Rotary Club

The Nevada City Rotary recognized David Kenitzer, Phil Ruble and Jim Young for their generous contributions to the Rotary Foundation. David Kenitzer received his first Paul Harris Fellow award for his $1,000 contribution. Phil Ruble received his second award and also made a memorial donation in the name of his mother, Marjorie Pauline Ader. Jim Young was recognized for his sixth Paul Harris Fellow award.

Named after the founder of Rotary, this Paul Harris Fellow recognition is the Rotary Foundation’s way of expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs. All three recipients earmarked their contributions for Polio Plus, representing their commitment to held eradicate polio throughout the world by 2005.
