We couldn't be more proud of our local winners of the Rotary District 5240 2020 4-Way Test Essay Contest! The assignment was to write an essay explaining how the 4-way test could be used to resolve conflict at school. Local winners moved on to the District level to compete among 72 Rotary clubs in 4 Counties.

Stas Hite-Polansky, 5th Grader at Nightingale Elementary won 1st place at the local level, AND 1st place at the District level for his age group for an amazing essay on using the 4-way test to resolve conflict about how to deal with food waste at school.

Arundhati Sharma, 7th Grader at Lakeview Junior High won 1st place at the local level AND 2nd place at the District level for her amazing essay on how the 4-way test could be used in Math class to resolve conflict.
CONGRATULATIONS to our winners! We were able to present their cash prizes and certificates at a small ceremony at Waller Park on Saturday - attended by some members of the club and the winner's families and teachers.

Thank you everyone - can't wait to see what you all do next year!!

Due to the coronavirus, club meetings are temporarily cancelled, 5K/10K Run/Walk will be rescheduled, and other events will be disrupted.  Bulletins will be posted when this changes.
We were thrilled to present a check for $6,000 to Growing Grounds Farms. Our annual Run-Walk for Mental Health held on April 27th this year was a resounding success thanks to all the participants and club members who made it happen! Half of proceeds raised went to Growing Grounds to help them with their mission, the other half goes to our local Rotary Foundation and will be used for scholarships, local and international projects. Thank you to everyone!! Mark your calendar now for the next one! It will always be the last Saturday in April - so the date next year will be  April 25, 2020!

Congratulations to Omar and Petra Hernandez, owners of Shred2You in Santa Maria, and members of The Rotary Club of Santa Maria South. They have been awarded Small Business of the Month by Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham!
 
Shred2You  provides top-rated on-site residential and business paper shredding to communities from Paso Robles to Carpinteria. They also accept appointments at their office at 550 West Betteravia in Santa Maria. 
Omar and Petra have been members of Santa Maria Rotary South for just under a year, and have been extremely active in the club and our community projects - they began to demonstrate the Rotary Motto of  "Service Above Self" before they were even officially inducted to the club. 
 
We are proud to have them as members of our club, and so excited about this recognition of their business!
