2023 BUSINESS ETHICS AWARDS

One of the key pillars of Rotary is Service Above Self, which can be carried out in a number of ways, including through one’s vocation. Recently, Camarillo Rotary presented its annual Business Ethics Awards, recognizing and celebrating individuals and businesses in the Camarillo community who have exemplified service to others and have operated under the highest ethical standards.

Our 2023 winners, shown above left to right , include Trish Avila (Mobility Management Partners), Danielle Beck (Epicurean Olive Oils), Debbie Rose (Fine Sconehenge Bakery), Bonnie Wong Francisco and Sean Leonard (S.L.

CAMARILLO ROTARY PLANTS TREES AT OAK GROVE PARK

On Wednesday, April 24, 2019, Camarillo Rotarians planted 19 Live Oak trees at Camarillo's Oak Grove Park, helping to replace trees destroyed by the devastating Hill fire. Each tree was donated in honor of or in memory of a friend or family member. The Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District assisted with the planting project, which was originated by Rotarian Jay Berger, shown here with his wife Joni planting a tree dedicated to their grandchildren.

27TH ANNUAL KIDS HOLIDAY PARTY BRINGS JOY

On December 20, 2018, the Camarillo Boys & Girls Club was transformed into a holiday wonderland as the Camarillo Rotary Club put on its 27th Annual Kids Holiday Party with Santa, pizza, magicians (thank you, Paul Dwork), balloon animals, Christmas carols and wrapped presents. The event began in 1989, said Chair Mike Andonian, who was club president at the time. He asked members for community-service ideas, and Hank Crockett, the publisher of the Camarillo Daily News, came up with the idea. "He did it the first year, and I've done it every year since," Andonian said.

This year, Rotarians entertained approximately 190 kids ages kindergarten through 3rd grade.
