On December 15, 2016, the Camarillo Boys & Girls Club was transformed into a holiday wonderland as the Camarillo Rotary Club put on its 25th Annual Kids Holiday Party with Santa, pizza, magicians, 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.
The Hap Rapp Memorial Track Meet is the oldest community service project of the Camarillo Rotary Club. The Meet began in 1959, when a group of local Rotarians created an organized track and field competition for Camarillo boys and girls at the elementary and junior high school levels. There were only a few schools then, and not too many entrants, but over the years, the Meet has grown to keep pace with the community.
