Ojai West Rotary Work Crew Gussies Up Rotary Park
How many Rotarian’s does it take to move 4 cubic yards of mulch using wheelbarrows and spread it at the entrance to Rotary Park?  Ten hard working Rotarians took one little hour to get it done and it looks fabulous!   Many thanks to The Crew:
 
Dustin Baxley
Linda Burr
Mike Caldwell
Walt Hamann
Michelle Hensen
President-Elect Donna Jones
Kern Lewis
Barry Rabe
President Bill Shouse
Linda Taylor 
 
And a truckload of thanks to Venco Western for the free mulch!  
RCOW gave a grant to local Boy Scout Lakin Ellison's Eagle Scout project. Here are a couple of images from the project day. He directed a crew of volunteers in the construction of a fire ring at the American Legion Hall, which will be used for the dignified retirement of American flags.
The date for the dedication ceremony is TBD.

The Rotary Club of Ojai West recently honored Gage DeLao and Avery Monson as their January and February Nordhoff High School Students of the Month. Teachers and administrators nominate deserving students monthly for this award. Students receive a scholarship award and certificates for their outstanding efforts.
Avery Monson was nominated by her English Teacher, Gabrielle Taylor. Presenting Avery to the Rotarians she stated that it has been her pleasure to watch Avery grow into a stronger and more confident reader, writer and all-around student. She performs academically at the top of her class.
Gage DeLao, a senior, was nominated for the award by his CTE teacher Annelisa Cohen for his outstanding efforts in Environmental Field Studies and Agriculture. Cohen stated, “Not only is Gage humble, but he is dedicated to getting everything done with precision and accuracy. Whenever I need a hand in the native plant nursery or doing field work, he will be the last one working to make sure the job to perfection.”
Rotarian Beverly Schuberth opened her home to guests to celebrate Mardi Gras 2024 in style last week! Click through the image carousel to view just a few examples of attendees enjoying each others' company.

The Rotary Club of Ojai West recently completed its annual project to distribute student dictionaries to every third grader in the Ojai Valley.  This is the 21st year of the project! As always, the project was originated and managed by Rotarian Richard McArthur and his wife Sheryl McArthur.
The Rotary Club of Ojai West honored fourteen young people with a Paul Harris Fellowship at a festive and joyful ceremony and reception on December 19 at the Ojai Museum.
A Paul Harris Fellow is the highest recognition a Rotary Club can
present to either a Rotarian or member of the community
who has made an outstanding contribution to the community.
These outstanding young people exhibit all the best habits of Rotarians in supporting Ojai, especially Service Above Self!
The two Rotary Clubs of Ojai shared an evening of celebration and fellowship to toast the 2023 Holiday Season. Our gracious hosts were the team at the Camp Arnaz Program Center run by the Girl Scouts of California's Central Coast.
