FOUR-WAY TEST ESSAY CONTEST

Our club regularly holds an essay contest for local students, asking them to explain how Rotary's "Four-Way Test" relates to their lives and daily activities. Recently, we asked students to tell us how the Test can be applied to conflict resolution.

In the High School Division, the winners were Elizabeth Gomez (First Place; Adolfo Camarillo High), Alex Masci (Second Place; Rancho Campana High) and Andrea Hassig (Rancho Campana High).

2021 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 2021 winners, shown left to right above and in the additional photo, are Tammy Throckmorton (IKT Tax & Accounting), Sharon Probst and Susan Hashimoto (The Fabric Shoppe), Manuel Choi, representing his parents Austin and Serena Choi (Yomama Sushi), and David Atkin (David Atkin Construction).
 
Each awardee was nominated by a Camarillo Rotary member or members.

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.

2021 VIVA LA COMIDA CANCELLED

Our 51st Viva La Comida, originally planned for January 2021, has been cancelled because of the Covid Pandemic. Look for a great new Viva in January 2022.
 
Viva La Comida began in 1971 (to see a slideshow of early photos, click here). Chuck Welch, Camarillo Rotary President, and Mike Loza, then owner of El Tecolote restaurant, began the dinner to help raise funds for the Boys Club of Camarillo. A Monday night was originally chosen for the event because Mike’s restaurant was closed on Mondays, allowing he and his staff to work with club members in preparing the food. Since 1971, more than 35,000 meals have been served at Viva La Comida. In addition to the Boys & Girls Club of Camarillo, the event benefits other community nonprofit organizations through the Camarillo Rotary Foundation.

ANOTHER GREAT TRACK MEET!

 
It was a beautiful day at Camarillo High last Saturday, as we put on our 55th Hap Rapp Memorial Track Meet. The weather cooperated, our volunteers did their jobs, the kids had a great time, and a few new records were set. Thanks to everyone who helped, both setting up on Friday and at the meet on Saturday. And a special shoutout to our perennial chairman Dave Drumright. Most of us don't realize how many hours Dave devotes to this event every year; without him, there would be no Meet. Thanks, Dave!

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.
