    The Road to Tyranny by Don Jans

    Pleasant Valley Don and Doña Nominations

    Nominations are being accepted for 2020 Dons and Doñas.  Individuals who have lived in the Camarillo, Somis or Santa Rosa Valley for the past 20 years and  have provided outstanding community service can be nominated for this honor.

    The designation began in Early California days as the title given to community leaders.  Adolfo Camarillo (1864 – 1958) was considered the “last of the Spanish Dons”.  For the past 50 years, the Society has honored the pillars of the community as Dons and Doñas.  Some are members of pioneer families, others made a difference in the community through their professional and volunteer efforts.  For many, it is a proud accomplishment to be named a Don or Doña.  Since 1964 over 400 people have been given this honor.  The awards will be presented at the Society’s annual BBQ on August 22 at the Camarillo Community Center.

    Nomination should be made by May 22, 2020.  All nominations will be kept  confidential.  Send to: PVHS Dons and Doñas Selection Committee, P. O. Box 570, Camarillo, CA 93011. For further information and to find a copy of the nomination form, see www.pvhsonline.org or phone 805-482-3660.

    The Pleasant Valley Historical Society is dedicated to serving the community by preserving and presenting the history of the Camarillo, Somis and Santa Rosa Valley area.
