Simi Valley Sunrise Club Honors Officer Tom Carney with a Paul Harris Fellow
In Appreciation for His Work Within Simi Valley
Featuring the Simi Sunrise Rotary Club
Simi Valley, CA -- Simi Valley Police Officer Tom Carney was recognized recently as a Paul Harris Fellow in special appreciation for the ways in which his life exemplifies the humanitarian and educational objectives of The Rotary Foundation. The Rotary Foundation is one of the largest and most important programs of Rotary. Without the Foundation, Rotary could not continue its many humanitarian programs and its efforts to promote world understanding and peace.
I have been overwhelmed by the response to the $26.50 challenge from Rotary clubs throughout District 5240. Once again, you – the Rotarians in our district – are showing that you are leaders and innovators who are enabling our Rotary Foundation to do good in the world for the next hundred years. Several clubs have already met the challenge. I look forward to recognizing those clubs and the many that will join them in the next several weeks for this remarkable accomplishment.
You may take one Master PRLS (MPRLS) class or all five in one weekend!
Class cost is $60 each or $250 for the weekend - a savings of $50

I am with Rotary Club of Ventura- Downtown and would like to share with the district and event we are helping with here in town.
The link to the event is:
This year's Color Run event is approaching and I am looking for some volunteers to help out again. The event will be held Oct 15th at the Ventura County Fairgrounds. I need volunteers the day of the event as well as packet pick-up day Oct 14th. If you have connections to other groups (high schools, cheers group, running clubs, books clubs....you name it) we can always use an extra body along the course or during setup/breakdown. We earn money for EVERY PERSON....so bring a friend or bring 100 friends to spend the day in Ventura and experience another great Ventura event.

Every year, we provide a shopping spree for underprivileged children at Kohl’s Department Store in Simi Valley. The children are selected by the local Samaritan Center. This year we helped 18 children shop for new clothes and school supplies. CLICK HERE for full presentation
Club maintains connections with Rainforest Clinic
Ventura, CA - The Downtown Rotary Club led by President Betsy Chess, announced the second year of continued support of the remote medical clinic in central Guatemala. The club’s International Services team is being supported this year by assistant director Marty Armstrong and member Joe Schaaf. They will be transporting club donated medical supplies and equipment to a medical clinic in the small rural town of Santo Tomas la Union, Suchitepequez, Guatemala located 3.5 hours west of Guatemala City. The team will be heading to the clinic Sept 23rd-26th and look forward to sharing with our fellow Rotarians the journal of our travels and how Ventura Rotarians are making a difference in rural Central America.
The clinic is run by an American physician, Zachary Self, MD, who completed his medical school at University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, TN and his residency training at the Ventura Family Medicine Residency in Ventura, CA. The clinic’s doors opened in 2015 and begin providing a preferential option of accessible high quality modern healthcare to the region.
The Rotary Club of Jaguariuna covered the equipment with our help via the MG, their Foundation covers the building, and the local business partners they lined up cover the teacher's salaries. This school is top notch and is considered much better than the public school for both teachers (who are paid better) and computers (which we helped supply).
