Goleta Rotary, Alpha Center Honor Walter Ware

Flag dedication to be led by Skip Ware, longtime Alpha participant.

Alpha Resource Center and the Rotary Club of Goleta will pay tribute to the late Walter Ware on Thursday with the dedication of a new flag and a plaque in his honor. The ceremony will begin at 12:30 p.m. at the Alpha Resource Center campus, 4501 Cathedral Oaks Road.

The Rotary Club of Goleta has made numerous improvements at Alpha in Ware’s memory and in recognition of the nonprofit organization’s support to Ware’s son, Skip.

For the past 20 years, Skip Ware has been an active participant at Alpha Resource Center, 4501 Cathedral Oaks Road. As a leader in the Alpha Self-Advocacy Council, the younger Ware is tenacious about ensuring he and his colleagues with developmental disabilities are treated with dignity and respect; are present and active community members; and have control over their own lives. Skip Ware attributes his success in life to his father, and raises the flag each day in appreciation for his support.

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!
