Joyce West was stunned when she learned she was named a 2016 Living Treasure.
“There are so many people in this valley, you know,” she said. “It's an amazing valley when you think of the percentage of people who volunteer and they volunteer willingly and there are so many talents here that we're very, very fortunate.”
Living Treasures is a program run by the Rotary Club of Ojai and the Rotary Club of Ojai West that recognizes role models and mentors in the Ojai area.
