Don And Doñas Barbeque

It’s time again to honor those who make Camarillo a wonderful place to live.  Don and Doñas are selected because they contribute more than what is normally expected of a good citizen. Some are members of our pioneer families; others make a difference in the community through their professional and volunteer efforts.

The Don and Doñas Barbecue is one of the most eagerly anticipated events in town; the honorees are well chosen, the food is excellent and a good time is had by all.

Each year the Pleasant Valley Historical Society recognizes those who make significant contributions to the community.  The individuals selected for 2021 show a range of service to the community, making the Pleasant Valley area a special place to live.  This year’s honorees are:

Linda Braunschweiger, Neal Dixon, Bob Fierro, Rachel Resnik-Miles, Mike Mishler, Linda Packham, Barbara Swetek, Terry Tackett, Cathy Trainer, Dennis Gaiser, Helen Shields and Virginia Wooten.

The honorees will be recognized at the annual Dons and Doñas Barbecue on September 25th at the Camarillo Community Center. The Santa Maria style meal will be tri-tip, chicken, vegetarian beans, salad, garlic bread and dessert.  Beverages of choice are included.

The public is invited to join in the celebration with the honorees, their families and friends at this gala event. Doors will open at 1 pm for a social hour, the honorees will be introduced at 2 p.m. and meal service follows.  Tickets are $75 for adults, $15 for children under 12.  Paid reservations are available by mail to PVHS, P.O. Box 570, Camarillo, CA. 93011.  You may also charge through PayPal.  Tickets will be held at the door.  For more information about the Barbecue and the historical museum, see or call 805-482-3660.

Founded in 1964, the Pleasant Valley Historical Society is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the community by preserving and presenting the history of Camarillo and the Pleasant Valley area.
