It may be surprising to find out that Chris Drucker of Ojai hadn't been recognized as a Living Treasure by the Rotary clubs in Ojai until this year. Ojai resident Debra Louise had offered this reasoning when she nominated Drucker: “Perhaps she has been viewed as a Living Treasure by so many because she lives the life of a Living Treasure.”
A Living Treasure is a person that is a role model and mentor in the Ojai area. The Living Treasures program is run by the Rotary Club of Ojai and the Rotary Club of Ojai West. Before these clubs ran the program, it was created by Drucker's late husband, Sanford.
