The Channel Islands YMCA’s 35th Annual Good Friday Breakfast will feature Dr. H. Wallace Vandever as the keynote speaker April 6.

Plan on an inspirational morning of praise, music and community fellowship with “Dr. Wally,” as Vandever is known. He and his wife, Marilyn, moved to Montecito in 2000 and have been active in our community since. He serves as a member of the Board of Trustees of El Montecito Presbyterian Church, and as a board member of the Santa Barbara Symphony, The Granada Theater for the Performing Arts and the Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital.

Vandever was an original staff member who developed the U.S. Naval Hospital in Naples, Italy, for NATO. He practiced medicine at the Mayo Clinic and is a former officer of the Mayo Clinic Alumni Association. Vandever also has earned many professional and community awards for his work and his volunteerism.

The Channel Islands YMCA’s 35th Annual Good Friday Breakfast is from 7 to 8:45 a.m. Friday, April 6, at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort, 633 E. Cabrillo Blvd. in Santa Barbara.

Tickets are $35 per person and may be purchased at the Santa Barbara Family YMCA, 36 Hitchcock Way, or by calling 805.687.7720 x267.

Tables of eight may be sponsored for $250 to $1,000.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
