Rotary Club of Goleta Welcomes New President Michael Pitts

The Rotary Club of Goleta held its “Step-Down” dinner party on Tuesday at the hilltop home of Rotary member hosts Don Galloway and wife Chris.

President Paul Clayton handed over the gavel to new Rotary President Michael Pitts for the year 2013-14.

It was an evening well attended by Rotary members, families and friends. Several past presidents — Martin Senn, Harold Schaff and John Illgen — took turns honoring and roasting Clayton as he stepped down from his role as president.

As the new president, Pitts will preside over the meetings and lead the Rotary Club of Goleta for the following year. Meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. the second and fourth Tuesdays at the Elephant Bar Restaurant, 521 Firestone Road in Goleta.

Pitts welcomes men and women who would like to become involved in community service to visit the Rotary meetings and to attend the biggest fundraising event of the year, the Fourth of July Fireworks Independence Celebration held at Girsh Park. Children younger than age 12 are free, and so are all the games, contest and crafts. Bring the family and enjoy a safe and fun Fourth of July and meet your local Rotary members who are serving our community.

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!
