April 21 Speaker: Steve Brown
Great Basin National Park
Past President and long-time Rotary Club member Steve Brown is a member on the board of the Great Basin National Park Foundation. Lying in the shadow of the 13,062-foot Wheeler Peak, Great Basin National Park is home to ancient bristlecone pine trees, abundant wildlife, lakes and streams, and limestone caverns, including the stunning Lehman Caves. The park is located in east-central Nevada near the Utah border and preserves a small representative portion of the Great Basin, the region between the Sierra Nevada and the Wasatch Mountains. Given Great Basin Park’s remote location, it’s one of the darkest places in the United States and ranger-led astronomy programs are conducted year round.
Join us for a 24 minute video, Under a Desert Sky, completed in early 2013. The video offers a unique visit to a little known part, not only of Nevada, but of America. Baker, Nevada which sits at the eastern entrance to the Park may be the most geographically isolated community in the United States.
The Great Basin National Park is Nevada's only National Park.

To purchase Lacy’s CD go to www.LacyJ Dalton.com
The CD includes 10 of Lacy's greatest hits and the two Rotary songs she performed at the RI convention in New Orleans "We Are Rotary" and "This Close". Net proceeds go to Polio Plus. Lacy is a big supporter of Rotary's efforts to eliminate Polio. Many people don't know that her sister is a Polio survivor. Lacy is very supportive and appreciative of Rotary for all they do to make our world a better place.
Does your club need a new fundraiser?
If your club needs a fundraiser that is fun, a good value, and requires a minimal number of man hours to plan, then consider hiring Lacy to do a benefit concert. Unlike many club fundraisers most of the money from a concert comes from the community not your club members. Call Terry House at (775) 351-5514 or email Thouse@SilverLegacy.com for more information
For advice on what it takes to do a concert for a club fundraiser email fellow Rotarian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
