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.
In Memorium: Ed Prutzman
The Rotary year began in July with new president Ed Prutzman. At the end of the month, he announced that he was
stepping down because he had been diagnosed with lung cancer. Ed passed away Monday, March 23. Watch this spot for announcement of services for Ed.
|| Jazz and Olive Festival|
The 10th annual Los Olivos Jazz & Olive Festival will be held on Saturday, June 6, 2015 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.
