On February 4th 2023 held the first Casino Night event since 2020.  We were grounded for two years due to COVID.
The Rotary Club of Grass Valley has been presenting their Casino Night fundraiser for the last 30 years.  They have consistently been able to provide funding support for community and senior programs in the Grass Valley community and have made a difference in many people’s lives.  In recovery from the COVID pandemic, renewal of their club fundraiser this year has exceeded their expectations and although final numbers are still being compiled, the club expects they will be able to continue and enhance their support of youth and senior programs this year.
 
 
 
 
We are excited to announce this wonderful collaboration grant effort to support the new NEO Youth Center at Bright Futures for Youth. Four Rotary Clubs came together to provide $40,000 total for the project. The Rotary Club of Grass Valley included a special donation in memory of club member Mike Johnson who was an integral part of developing youth services locally.
 
On Dec 12th Rotary Club of Grass Valley volunteers arrived at the Memory Garden on Litton Trail.  They planted three red maples, at least 250 daffodil bulbs and cleared a thousand acres of black berry vines, weeds and pruned bushes.  OK, it only seemed like a thousand acres.
