SANTA YNEZ VALLEY ROTARY CLUB ANNOUNCES 2020 FOURTH OF JULY FIREWORKS FESTIVAL CANCELED
(Solvang, CA) -After careful deliberation and with a deep sense of responsibility for the well-being of our community the Santa Ynez Valley Rotary has announced that the 2020 Fourth of July Fireworks Festival has been canceled. The decision was made due to concerns about public safety, social distancing, crowd management and uncertainty as to when large public gathering restrictions will be removed during the ongoing covid-19 pandemic. The Rotary club will now focus on making next year’s celebration even grander and continue to aid the community through donations and volunteer help to those in need during this critical time. We look forward to the time we can all get together again and celebrate all the things that make the Santa Ynez Valley such a special community.
Our Mission is simple. We enjoy helping others and try to foster peace, prosperity, goodwill and understanding throughout our community and the world. Working together as a group, we accomplish much more than we could individually. We expect nothing in return for our efforts. Seeing the positive changes we help make possible locally and throughout the world is its own greatest reward. We believe in living up to Rotary’s motto: “Service Above Self “.
This focuses on making clubs strong. A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.
This calls on every Rotarian to work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society. Learn more in An Introduction to Vocational Service and the Code of Conduct.
This encourages every Rotarian to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest. Learn more in Communities in Action: A Guide to Effective Projects.
This exemplifies our global reach in promoting peace and understanding. We support this service avenue by sponsoring or volunteering on international projects, seeking partners abroad, and more.
This recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs such as Rotaract, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange.
Please Donate if Possible. All donations go into our Foundation which allows us to continue to donate back to Charitable Causes.
