Bob Fatch began a 12-month term as president of the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara on July 1.

For the past 12 years, Fatch has been an active member in Rotary and has volunteered as chair of various committees and has twice served on the club’s Board of Directors.

Fatch was awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship in both 2005 and 2009. His goals for the club include increasing member involvement, implementing long-range planning for the club’s future vision and establishing an annual community service event. The Santa Barbara Rotary Charitable Foundation gives more than $50,000 annually to the community and programs around the world.

Fatch has lived in Santa Barbara since 1974 and was a founding partner of Whilt, Fatch & Perry Insurance Services. Since the sale of the firm in 2003, Fatch has been a vice president of Brown & Brown Insurance.

He and his wife, Kim, have three sons.

The Rotary Club of Santa Barbara meets for lunch from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Friday afternoons at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort, 633 E. Cabrillo Blvd. Click here for a complete list of upcoming speakers.

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!
