A member of the Rotary Club of Montecito for the past 20 years, Barnard has served on the club’s board, as club service chairwoman, on the golf tournament committee and as chairwoman of family of Rotary.

Barnard is a two-time recipient of the Paul Harris Fellow Award. This award is International Rotary Foundation’s way of expressing appreciation to individuals who make substantial contributions to humanitarian and educational programs.

As Rotarian of the year, Paul Kremser, last year’s club president, chose Barnard for her dedication as the club’s chairwoman of family of Rotary. She is responsible for arranging all of the special events and activities for the club each year.

In addition to Rotary, Barnard serves on the board of CFIT, a new organization focusing on Alzheimer’s and other cognitive diseases. She retired in 2006 after working for the YMCA for 38 years.

Rotary Club of Montecito meets at noon every Tuesday at the Montecito Country Club. The purpose of the organization is to support efforts of Rotary International to achieve world understanding and peace through international humanitarian, educational and cultural exchange programs.

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!
