Interclub Notes – Gold Country 10-6-2020

Gold Country has an upcoming event called Spooktacular Evening. It will take place on October 28, 2020

  • Gold Country’s current president is Aldo Vibanco
  • Zoom meetings will resume in November and December; things will likely go back to normal in January
  • The upcoming event, Spooktacular, is a virtual fundraiser. It will be live streamed, and Karen will be in a cat costume. They are hoping to make this a quarterly event
  • The guest speaker was Marni Marshall, the Executive Director of the Grass Valley Downtown Association
    • She works with the city
    • Her main objective is to bring people downtown to appreciate history and see new events
    • She identifies what the city needs; restaurants, for example
    • Things have been difficult. They had to lay off their assistant and there have not been as many donations
    • They have traditionally done a Christmas event called Corners Christmas, but now this is uncertain. Aldo pitched some ideas such as having people play stringed instruments, and having choir members (who are not allowed to do what they have in the past this year) pre-record their singing
