SCHOLARSHIPS AWARDED

Our club's annual Scholarships are one of our oldest community service projects, second only to the Track Meet. They began in 1962 as the Honn Memorial Scholarships, named in honor of two sons of then club president Charles Honn; the boys tragically drowned in an accident off the Oxnard coast. From one award annually in the early days, the program has grown over the years, and recently we were happy to honor eleven deserving students with $1,000 Camarillo Rotary scholarships. The winners, shown here right to left with club Scholarship Committee Chair Ira Schoenwald, are:
 
• Larissa Barralaga, recipient of the Scott Family Vocational Scholarship. She plans to major in Construction Management at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
• Nicole Ayala is currently pursuing a degree at CSUCI and hopes to build her own business.
Christian Fababier (Hueneme High School) plans to attend UC Irvine or Oxnard College and pursue a degree in Mechanical Engineering.

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.
