Annual Don and Doña Presentation Barbeque

2021 Event is scheduled for September 25th

For 56 years, Don and Doña honors have been awarded to long-time local residents who are nominated by the community.  These residents have made a difference in the community through their professional and volunteer efforts for at least twenty years.  The designation harkens back to early California days as the title given to community leaders.  (Adolfo Camarillo [1864 – 1958] was considered the “last of the Spanish Dons”.)   The Society is pleased to acknowledge their contributions to this lovely valley. The public is invited to the annual celebration, a Santa Maria style BBQ.

The 2021 Event is currently scheduled for September 25th, 1pm to 4pm, at the Camarillo Community Center (1605 E. Burnley St.).  For inquires, please contact us using the ‘Send us a message:’ form (shown below under “Contact Us”).
