Our Vaughn Middle School Big Dig was this past weekend. Thank you to the Rotarians who came out to help - you crushed it!

We are in talks to return to the Washoe Public House for President Cody's year and it's looking promising!

Let us know your thoughts about how our future meetings should look!
Great news. RYLA is a GO for 2021 as scheduled!
It’s official as of today: We are definitely going to stage three RYLA sessions on June 13-18, June 20-25 and July 11-16.

Our 4/26 meeting will be a field trip to Silver City (south of Virginia City) for an official GHOST HUNT!!! NNVGH can only accommodate 10 live humans, so click here to sign up. There are rules and a specific parking area. Please be familiar with all this before you arrive.
Message from NNVGH:
Our Mill site consists of the Machine Shop (blacksmith shop), The office, The Foundry, and The Mill itself, If the ghosts don't take your breath away the history will! We are so very excited to show off our Beautiful Donovan Mill!!!! Be aware there are no bathroom facilities at this time. The closest restrooms are in Virginia City but the drive from the Donovan to VC in the dark is especially chilling.
We do have a liability form we ask you to sign and like to do a safety walk-through with the team before it gets too dark. PLEASE PLAN TO ARRIVE EARLY TO TAKE CARE OF THIS.
Hunt starts at 6:30 pm at the Mill. You can park across the street or on the North or South as indicated by the X's on the picture. The address for the Mill is 900 S. Main Street, Silver City, Nevada. You can come up through Carson City or Geiger Grade
