31 - Community Service Award Recipient, Chris and Patti Ising

The Rotary Club of Livermore is proud to present Chris and Patti Ising who were chosen our 2014 Community Service Award winners! Patti Ising has been serving the Tri-Valley for many years and is involved in many organizations. For several years, she has been part of the Livermore Rodeo production team, putting on the World’s Fastest Rodeo. She was recently appointed by the mayor as our Community Representative to the U.S. Military for her work with military families and returning veterans. Chris Ising was born in Livermore. He's a cattle rancher and farmer and the owner of Ising Culligan Water Service. His community service record is about as long as Patti's and includes being past president of our Rotary Club and also a former Rodeo Parade Director. Chris and Patti Ising we thank you for your community service. You're each deserving of this honor and together you're unbeatable!

It is committed to sponsoring youth programs in the community, advocating honor and patriotism, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans. Livermore's Post #47 is one of the oldest in California. They meet at the Veterans Memorial Building on the 2nd and 4th Monday of every month. Fleet Reserve Association is also a congressionallychartered veteran’s organization that represents the interests of the Sea Service community before the U.S. Congress. Its membership is comprised of current and former enlisted members of the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. Livermore Branch 287 was formed in 1967 and meets the 1st Friday of each month at the Veterans Memorial Building.




33 - US Military Armed Forces Recruiters


Here comes the air force, army, marines, and navy, all represented by the recruiting stations located here in Livermore. The offices are located on Murrieta and Stanley Blvd. Stop by and visit, watch a video, or just look at the equipment they have. These active military personnel volunteer in our community with local youth groups, the baseball and football games of Livermore and Granada, the Rodeo, and helping veterans and their families wherever needed. Let's let them know how much we support our military here in Livermore with a grand salute!!!






34 - Valley Veterans Foundation


Here we have the Valley Veterans Foundation, a group that provides general and financial support for our military veterans. When a loved one returns from deployment, VVF coordinates with other groups to make "Welcome Home" celebrations special. Last year VVF offered scholarships to veteran students at Las Positas College and general support for the Veterans First program at the college. The Warrior Watch Riders motorcycle group have made it their mission to honor and celebrate returning service members! They are a beacon to remind all of us all of the service our military men and women provide to our country.



















35 - Pleasanton Military Families


This next group is called Pleasanton Military Families. They formed in 2003 with a mission is to provide support and comfort to our troops and military families of the Tri-Valley. They partner with the VFW and American Legion on local events and fundraising and also sponsor the Yellow Streamer program on Main Street in Pleasanton, where they honor our local military with yellow streamers hanging from the light posts with the name, rank, and branch of service printed on them.



36 - East Ave. Middle School Dolphin Band


Here comes the East Avenue Middle School Dolphin Band! The East Avenue Music Department has had another fantastic year performing together. The music program at East Avenue school has seen an enrollment increase of 17% over last year. The students know they're fortunate to live in a supportive community that lets them pursue their musical dreams. They also appreciate their families for their endless support. Now, under the baton of drum major Alex Tadevich, here is the East Avenue Dolphin Band performing Andrew Balent’s, “Silver Eagle."
