President Elect Bob Orlando made a new friend at the Rotary International Convention in Hamburg, Germany. Please meet Peace Taremwa, Past Assistant Governor, RC Kajjansi, Tanzania and  Uganda. We pride ourselves in Rotary to define our community as not just the city we live in, but the world we live in. 
The Rotary Club of Santa Paula was proud to award $24,000 in scholarships to the pictured seniors from Santa Paula High School. Congratulations! We wish you the best in your future endeavors.
Our guest speaker for Monday April 15, 2019, was Officer Kevin Denharder, Public Information Officer, California Highway Patrol, Ventura area and beyond.  Since we're a hands-on and learn-by-doing Club (many CALPOLY SLO grads), Officer Denharder "volunteered" member John Chamberlain to try on and function with "beer goggles".  After just one step, John was at least 0.08!  He had to sit down.  Thank you Officer Denhareder for your time; also, thanks to CHP Officer Clint Kneip for the contact.
 
Our Club sponsored four Santa Paula Highschool juniors this year to participate in the Rotary Youth Leadership Acadamy (RYLA).  RYLA is held at Camp Ramah, in the hills north of Ojai.  Leadership and teamwork are the goals of the annual event. Club Member, Stephanie Becerra, is our RYLA coordinator and with the help SPHS teacher advisor, Tasha Wisniewski, encouraged these four students to attend.  From l-r are: Alan Alvarez, Tyler Garces, Mario Pacheco, and Yessica Zavala.  Students arrive pensive and reserved but leave with insight and memories that will benefit their personal and professional lives.  RYLA was held from April 11-14, 2019.  In addition, long-time Club member, and past-president, Mike Mobley, was a camp counselor this year.
