With the assistance of a CPA in our club they painstakingly wrote the request applications for both the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the California Franchise Tax Board. Participated in telephony interview conference calls with the IRS along with follow up information. His purposeful diligence in following these requests validated the Club's interest was represented as intended. Many hours were spent in this monolithic effort. Larry is indeed a special Rotarian and deserves recognition for "People of Action".

I’m impressed! Congratulations

Way to go Raymond!

Congrats Raymond E. Foster

Please show Retired Chief Donald Fernald as the West Covina Sunrise Rotary 2018-2019 People of Action representative.

Don has been an active member of the club in ways that go beyond his service as a Club President and the numerous chair positions (i.e. Foundation, Club Treasurer, Community Services Chair, Shoes and Socks Co-Chair, Red Ribbon Rally Co-Chair, Interact Co Advisor.) Don has also been a mentor to youth in our community, assisted wounded warriers, bagged care packages for the homeless, and assisted many schools in the setup of their Every 15-Minute Program to help keep kids off drugs and safe behind the wheel of a car. There is nothing for the youth and seniors that you cannot ask Don to do - he is always willing and able to put in the hours, the hard work, and the personal sacrifice to make Rotary better, and our communities vibrant. Retired Chief Don Fernald is a true Rotary, Person of Action.

Our all time favorite picture is this one. After a grueling 14 hour day, all boxes of items for wounded warriors filled a 15-ft UHAUL. Only 4 us stayed the distance - we captured Don taking a cat nap...it truly depicts the level of work that goes into being a Rotarian. He is absolutely our fan favorite for People of Action.
