As Rotarian’s we work hard all year to be able to give back to our community. We give back to a variety of organizations and groups that help us out during the year. Without some of these groups putting these events together would not happen. Thank you for all of your help. Here are some of the groups we gave money to. If you are interested in volunteering for any of the groups, please click on the link to get started.
Michael Wylie came to Simi Valley Sunset Rotary Club to give us a speech on cyber security, and to make sure that we were taking all the necessary steps to secure ourselves and our companies. Just in case you think you are safe, check again. 75% percent American based businesses were hit last year.

The Rotary Club of Simi Sunset took on a festive air this evening as they celebrated an early Cinco De Mayo in typical, over the top club fashion. From stick on mustaches, to sombreros, Taco Tuesday, and a pinata the club had a great time getting in to the spirit of the celebration.
The club had the pleasure of visiting fellow Rotarian Adam Mutal at his place of business: Michael’s Flowers. Mr. Mutal took the club on a tour of the facility and provided an excellent demonstration and education presentation on how to make a flower arrangement. Thank you for your hospitality, Mr. Mutal.
Kicking off the Rotary year the Club of Simi Sunset hosted its Club Assembly night. Along with hearing from every Board Member as to what the club can expect in the coming year we had some very fun and unexpected highlights. The club had the great honor of hosting a fellow Rotarian from the Southern tip of India, we celebrated our fellow Rotarian’s birthday, and one of our newest members, Bill, had the pleasure of earning his official blue badge!
President Ryan’s first meeting kicked off with some serious red carpet flair. The club came decked out as the characters from a variety of different Broadway productions and made our fearless leader sign along to each tune. As a former thespian President Ryan didn’t miss a beat and was all too happy to have his first meeting be hijacked and turned into an impromptu stage show. During the meeting President Ryan was also treated to a retelling of some Korea International Convention stories and had the pleasure of inducting two new members into the club.
This week’s meeting sponsor was Adam Mutal, owner/operator of Michale’s Flowers. Adam provided three beautiful flower arrangements to be raffled off between members and guests alike. All proceeds from the raffle went to the club to further support our community projects.
Another meeting landing on a day of celebration. Again, it was business as usual, but with a dash of salsa. The social planning/party planning committee put together a festive evening with tacos, chips, and salsa and our club dressed the part.
Our Gator Run Leader, Kid Gilbert, said some kind words about those who helped out during Gator Run (which was pretty much everyone).
And then Mr. President, Rick Grossman, wanted the club to get some aggression out on a poor innocent piñata. We ended the evening with laughs.
