Our club celebrated Judy's year on June 27 at the Aviation Museum of Santa Paula. We are grateful for a thoughtful and fearless leader. We had a tremendous year under her leadership. Wishing you more blue skies to fly in Judy Phelps as you Rotary journey continues as a Past President.
 

 
Donations toward the 2016 Fireworks display are being accepted now! Any and all amounts are welcome and provide a spectacular display in the sky for all of Santa Paula to enjoy.
 

 
The Rotary Club of Santa Paula has launched its annual drive to collect and deliver food and toys to 500 needy families and their children in Santa Paula for Christmas.
 
The Rotarians will be filling boxes with frozen chickens, canned goods, rice, beans, potatoes, and fruit, as well as toys and books for the children.  Members of the Rotary Club of Santa Paula, and other community volunteers, will load up trucks and deliver baskets on the morning of Thursday, December 24, 2015.
 
The success of the program is largely dependent on the generosity of the community. The Faulkner Farm Pumpkin Patch was cancelled last year and has significantly impacted funding. The program costs about $15,000. We are asking for your most generous donation please.  Students, churches, scout troops, clubs, and mobile home parks have all contributed in the past and are asked again to help your fellow Santa Paulans in need this Christmas season. If you are able to donate to the program, please send an email to rotarybaskets@gmail.com or speak with any Rotary Club of Santa Paula member.  Monetary contributions may be given to any Santa Paula Rotary Club member or mailed to the Rotary Club at P.O. Box 809, Santa Paula, CA  93061.  Please make all checks payable to Santa Paula Rotary Club. You may also access our website at www.santapaularotary.org.
 
Collection points for canned goods, books and toys have been established at Fire Station #1 at 114 S. 10th Street, Fire Station #2 at 536 W. Main St., Santa Paula Community Bank at 537 W. Harvard Blvd., Santa Paula Fitness at 847 E. Main St. and several other generous locations.  Donations will be accepted at the Santa Paula Community Center at 530 W. Main Street on Tuesday, December 22nd in the morning. Toys are especially needed for young boys and teens.
 
Once again, thank you for helping ensure 500 families and their children will have a Merry Christmas!
 

 
 
 
President Judy Phelps and Secretary Maria Bombara represented the Rotary Club of Santa Paula at the District Conference in Bakersfield this weekend. Judy and Maria were hosted by Bakersfield Breakfast President Jackie Maxwell. The weekend began with a reunion luncheon  held at Jackie's home for the group who traveled together in Brazil last May. Great Rotary fellowship! The evening began with a fun social at The Park at the Mark. Delicious food, reconnecting with old friends and meeting new friends. We were then invited to enjoy First Friday in downtown Bakersfield. Saturday morning celebrated our youth partners; Boys & Girls Club, Interact and Rotaract.
Interact, Youth Exchange and Rotaract members and presenters reminded us to maintain our core values of Service, Fellowship and Ethical Behaviors while asking our members how we will attract the younger members. Respect the differences n our communications. Understand technology is assumed by the millennials. Ensure Rotary service is maintained for generations to come. Why Now? Why Now.
The evening celebrated Rotary and the Sounds of Bakersfield at Buck Owens Crystal Palace. Our keynote speaker was Larry Powell. Larry was quite the inspirational speaker. There was a delicious BBQ dinner and live music by Monty Byrom and The Buckaroos which sparked lots of dancing! Rotarians work hard and play hard to make a difference in our communities, in our world.

Jim Lewis of Moorpark Rotary shared his polio story with our club on Monday. Jim reminded us the eradication of polio is still a top priority for Rotary.  Jim is pictured here with President Chris Wilson and Past Presidents and National Immunization Day participants Pamela Lindsay and Nils Rueckert. If you would like to make a donation to continue the work of the eradication of polio, you may mail it to the Rotary Club of Santa Paula, PO Box 809, Santa Paula, CA 93061. For further information about the End Polio campaign, you may contact a Rotarian or reference www.endpolio.org.
Happy New Year!

  "If there is to be peace in the world, 
There must be peace in the nations. 
If there is to be peace in the nations, 
There must be peace in the cities. 
If there is to be peace in the cities, 
There must be peace between neighbors. 
If there is to be peace between neighbors, 
There must be peace in the home. 
If there is to be peace in the home, 
There must be peace in the heart".

Grant survey shows solid support for new model
More than 6,000 Rotary members in 154 countries reported on their experiences with the new grant model as part of an evaluation during the 2015-16 Rotary year.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
