The Rotary Club of Los Olivos California is a group of forty to forty-five local business and professional men and women from the Santa Ynez Valley, Solvang, Ballard, Buellton and Los Olivos who meet weekly to discuss ways to serve the community and the world, and to hear an interesting program. Our club is one of 34,000 clubs making up Rotary International, a worldwide organization with 1,300,000 members in over 200 countries. We meet on every Thursday evening at 5:15pm for snacks, wine or soft drinks, with a meeting starting at 6:00pm. We introduce a new program speaker at 6:00pm sharp for the main presentation with questions from 6:20pm to 6:30pm. We adjourn at 6:30pm.
|| Jazz and Olive Festival|
The 10th annual Los Olivos Jazz & Olive Festival will be held on June 7, 2014 from
1:00 to 4:00 p.m. in Lavinia Campbell Park in downtown Los Olivos. This event produced by the Rotary Club of Los Olivos features wines poured by thirty local wineries along with food prepared by thirty chefs, plus olive products vendors, and, of course, world-class live jazz, for an all-inclusive price of $60. Click the link above to see a short video of a prior event and order tickets.
GRAMMY-nominee Denise Doantelli will be returning along with Stefan Karlsson and the rest of “The Los Angeles A Team”. All of these musicians have performed with some of the biggest names in jazz and popular music, and we are very fortunate to have them play for this event.
Enthusiastic attendees come from throughout California and many other states, and, as attendance is limited to 650, we expect to sell out again this year. It is recommended that tickets be purchased in advance. They may be obtained locally at the Book Loft in Solvang,
the Corner House Coffee in Los Olivos, on line at www.jazzandolivefestival.org, or by telephone at (805)325-9280.
||Rotary Swimarathon in the Santa Ynez Valley|
The timing for this year's Rotary Global Swimarathon did not work well and only one entry had been received a week before the event. Watch for a new type of swimarathon in September with all the proceeds going to the teams and individuals who participate. It will be a part of the club's service to the community by promoting phyical fitness and letting participants help in funding the very activities they benefit from.
