Welcome to the Santa Maria Breakfast Rotary, Matt Richardson! With an impressive career as the CFO for Marian Regional Medical Center and oversight for multiple hospitals, Matt brings invaluable expertise to our group. His deep roots in Orcutt and commitment to the community, coupled with his rich educational background from Allan Hancock Collegxe to Pepperdine University, make him a fantastic addition. Matt's dedication as a family man, married to Kristy for 23 years and a father to Lily and Cole, further enriches our Rotary family. We are thrilled to have you on board, Matt!
Our Santa Maria Breakfast Rotary members had a remarkable experience at this year's Rose Parade. They dived into the action by decorating a vibrant and intricate float, showcasing their creativity and dedication to community service. The excitement peaked as they became part of the parade, proudly marching and representing our community. This participation not only reflected our Rotary's spirit but also brought Santa Maria's essence to a global audience. A memorable moment for our members, embodying the true spirit of Rotary!
Our Santa Maria Breakfast Rotary celebrated the festive season with a joyous Christmas party. It was a wonderful evening of delicious food, laughter, and great company, highlighting the strong bonds within our group. The event was a perfect blend of relaxation and celebration, reinforcing our sense of community. This gathering not only marked the holiday season but also celebrated our collective achievements and the spirit of our Rotary family.

🎉 Exciting News! 🎉 After 3 long years without the Christmas Parade of Lights, we're thrilled to announce that it's back and scheduled to happen, rain or shine, in 2023! 🌟

This year marks the 28th anniversary of the Christmas Parade of Lights under Rotary leadership. It's a tradition that has evolved and grown over the years, thanks to the dedication of our community. From its early beginnings to the joyful spirit of giving, this parade has been a symbol of unity and celebration.

We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our incredible sponsors who have made this revival possible: Santa Maria Times, Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, Mechanics Bank, Marian Regional Medical Center, and Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling. Your support means the world to us, and it's thanks to your generosity that we can once again light up the streets with holiday cheer!

Join us as we kick off the holiday season with the Christmas Parade of Lights, and remember, it's not just about the lights and decorations; it's about the joy of giving and coming together as a community. Stay tuned for more details, and let's make this year's parade one to remember! 🎄✨ #ChristmasParade #CommunitySpirit #SantaMariaTradition #ThankYouSponsors

Hey everyone! We had an amazing time at the OCAF Chalk Fest this weekend. A huge thank you to Mason, Mike, Linda, and Tanya for distributing 400 water bottles to keep the community hydrated. Your hard work truly made a difference.

We also had the privilege of sponsoring a square for an artist. Check out the picture to see the incredible artwork that graced our sponsored square! Although the artist Cody had already left, his art certainly left an impression. Thanks to everyone who came out to support both the community and the arts! 🎨💦
