Roland Rotz Takes the Helm of Rotary Club of Carpinteria

Roland Rotz

With more than 50 guests and club members present, the Rotary Club of Carpinteria celebrated the “step down” of outgoing president Andy Bailard and welcomed its 41st club president, Roland Rotz, at a buffet dinner held Tuesday at the Lions Community Building on Foothill Road in Carpinteria.

Honored guests included the club’s chartering past president, Dr. Bill Carty, and his wife, Daphne.

Club members Craig Murray and Harry Harper were named Paul Harris Fellows at the event.

Other awards for the club included several Avenues of Service awards given by Rotary District 5240, featuring “The Best Medium Club,” “The Silver Club of Distinction” and the coveted “Peace Though Service” award given by the president of Rotary International, Sakujo Tanada.

Rotz’s first meeting will be held from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Thursday, July 11 at the Lions Community Building in Carpinteria.

Those who wish to attend may call 805.886.6463.

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!
