Community Service Award Bio - Chris and Patti Ising
 


  
 
Chris is a fourth generation Livermore Family. He was born at St. Paul’s Hospital on South J and 8th St., attended 5th Street School, then Livermore High School where he spent 4 years on the swim team graduating in the class of 1965. His great grandfather, grandfather, mother and himself have their class pictures on the walls of the Livermore High Theater. He grew up on the family ranch on Mines Road where his family still resides today. His mother raised cattle on the ranch and Chris continues that tradition today raising Angus and Hereford cattle along with nurturing his pistachio orchard. Upon completion of college at the University of Denver, Colorado, he came home to help his father in the family Culligan Water Service business that has resided in the same location on Railroad Avenue for the last 66 years. He took over Culligan as manager in 1975, and owner upon the death of his father in 1994. Chris joined Rotary Club of Livermore in 1972 at his friend, Russ Bargmann wishes and has remained an active member ever since. He served as chairman of the Rotary Crab Feed for a few years and many years as director of the adult beverage services at the crab feeds. Chris helped Rotary usher through the lights and cover of the rodeo stands at Robertson Park Rodeo Arena, as well as serving as Chairman of the Rotary Rodeo Parade for 4 years. The Contra Costa/Alameda County Cattlemen’s Association continued to elect him as their Treasurer for 12 years, then asked him to be President for 2 years. Following in his father’s footsteps he was Chairman of the Valley Study Group for 2 years and remained a member for an additional 15. He is currently serving as the Vice President of the California Bottle Water Association and continues to own and operate Culligan Water Services on Railroad Avenue. Chris cares deeply about his community and the opportunities for participating in events throughout the city with his water services.

Patti Ising moved from Pleasanton to Livermore in 1982 upon their marriage. Born in San Diego into a naval officer family she moved around a lot in childhood ending up in Sunnyvale where she attended school and graduated from Foothill College in Los Altos. Her career of 15 years took her to the far ends of the civilized world as a flight attendant for an international carrier. Based in Oakland, Transamerica Airlines afforded her the opportunity to live locally as she did in Sunnyvale and Pleasanton. Upon marriage into the Ising family she worked at another of the family businesses, Travel Universal, on Second Street in Livermore for a couple of years. Upon mother-in-law, Rae Ising’s request she joined the Alameda County Cattlewomen’s Association in 1982 where she is still a member, and at the invitation of members she joined PEO which is a ladies Philanthropic Educational Organization promoting education for women that same year. Patti served many years in officer positions for the Cattlewomen including President in 1996. Very active in the cattle business she and Chris are continuing members of the California State associations. For the past 11 years Patti has been part of the Livermore Rodeo production team, putting on the World’s Fastest Rodeo now in its 96th year. Along with team member Carol Rivers, they procured the advertising and assembled the Rodeo Program, marketing and promoting the rodeo as well as writing media articles. The Rodeo parade entries were her love and the organizing of the entries offered the opportunity to connect the community with the faces behind the rodeo and its connection to Rotary. Always remembering that the Livermore Rodeo was founded in 1918 as a fund raiser for the Red Cross World War One war effort the military community of the Tri-Valley is by far her first priority.
Recently appointed by Mayor John Marchand as the Community Representative for Livermore to the U.S. Military, Patti hopes to offer the many military focused organizations communication, coordination, and dedication with continued support of our active returning military, their families, and our veterans and their families as they transition into and thrive in our community.

Chris and Patti Ising are honored to be chosen as the Community Service Award recipients for the Livermore Rotary Club and so look forward to another wonderful Rodeo Parade.
