Santa Barbara Rotarians Come to Aid of Mexican Town


Three members travel to Ezequiel Montes to deliver a much-needed ambulance.





Rotarians around the world are known for their good works, and the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara is no exception.


Through fund-raising activities including its WheelCharity Races and guessing how many push-ups member David Rachford could do, the Rotary Club recently delivered an ambulance to the town of Ezequiel Montes in Mexico.

Members Bill Dutton, Dan Herlinger and John Sarad arrived April 19 to present the keys to Wolfgang Stullenberg, president of the Ezequiel Montes Rotary Club.

Ezequiel Montes, a town of about 30,000 people with another 20,000 people in the surrounding area, had only one ambulance for its medical needs.

Stullenberg was instrumental in supporting this successful project and working with local Mexican governments.

“This new ambulance should go a long way to help save lives in this central part of Mexico,” Dutton said.

Kathryn McKee is the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara‘s media relations coordinator.

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.
