Rotary Club of Goleta Assists Rotaract Club of Santa Barbara with End Polio Now Fundraiser

Two members of the Rotary Club of Goleta, Debbie Weaver and Lynn Cederquist, supported the Rotaract Club of Santa Barbara at Rotaract’s recent fundraiser at Killer B’s restaurant to help End Polio Now.

Rotaract is a humanitarian organization for young professionals between the ages of 18 and 35. Rotaract clubs are dedicated to contributing to local and international charity work. Their efforts are not only financial but laborious for the task at hand. They are a true nonprofit organization. Volunteers donate their time and energy to eliminate any type of overhead, allowing all proceeds to be contributed to worthy causes. They are here in our community to make a difference.

Rotaract clubs are located all around the world. Each club is an independent organization within the Rotary International family. The president of the Rotaract Club of Santa Barbara is Sarah Demchuk, who is part of the core restart group and an assistant manager at Montecito Bank & Trust’s downtown Santa Barbara branch.

The Rotary Club of Goleta meets bimonthly at Glen Anne Golf Club’s Frog Bar & Grill Restaurant, 404 Glen Annie Road, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays. Each dinner meeting includes guest speakers and interesting programs. If you are interested in learning more about Rotary International and how you can become involved in local and international projects to make this a better world, contact club president Mike Pitts at [email protected] or membership chairman David Dart at [email protected]. Guests are welcome!

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!
