Thank you, Thank you!
David Ferney – the Artistic Director of the Arcata Playhouse – showed up at our meeting to express his organization’s appreciation for our Club’s support over the years. President Ray just happened to have a check at the ready as well!
Later, our Exchange Student Finn Grewe thanked the Club for his Christmas present:
Rotarian of the Week!
Randy Mendosa was President Ray’s selection for Rotarian of the Week. The award now includes a gift card! (Shannon Maciel asked whether the policy was retroactive. I’m sure that had nothing to do with the fact that she was the Rotarian of the Previous Week.)
Humboldt Wind Project
Our Featured Speaker was Natalynne DeLapp of Terra-Gen. Natalynne talked about the wind energy that her company will soon be harvesting in the hills above Rio Dell. The project should create local jobs and supply less expensive renewable energy for Humboldt County.
Here is a link to the video that Natalynne was not able to show us due to the lack of internet access:
