Our Projects


Education:

  • Somis Thursday Club awards scholarships to local high school graduates each year that are continuing on to college.  (Current Graduating High School Seniors who are residents of Camarillo, CA or Somis, CA can download the application form here: STC SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION FORM 2019)



Advocates for Children:


Conservation/Ecology:

  • Penny Pines (Plant A Tree) is a favorite charity of the club.  We collect cash in jars at each meeting and when there is enough to reforest an acre, a check is sent to the Agriculture Department. To date the club has reforested nineteen acres. (Penny Pines Reforestation Program Website)
  • Xeriscaping the Clubhouse's front lawn and providing water-saving succulents.

  • We are in the midst of an extensive clubhouse renovation project.  We have replaced the roof.  We have upgraded the sound system in the main hall.  We still need repairs to the floors and electrical system.  We also are looking for grants to help with painting the outside of the building.
