OROVILLE, Calif. – The Oroville Rotary Club surprised one of their members Tuesday with a drive-by parade for his 95th birthday and 62nd year of serving in Rotary.

Dozens of people including the Oroville Police drove by Rotary Park to recognize Rick Reichenbach.

Rick Reichenbach, of Oroville, is a former president and club secretary of Rotary. He joined the Rotary Club in 1958, when he was 33 years old.

But instead of receiving, Reichenbach was giving.

Reichenbach handed out his annual scholarship award to Cody Stuart, a senior at Las Plumas High School.

“It felt great,” Stuart said as he reflected on his scholarship award. “It felt like someone was out there and willing to help others. For people to help our youth and doing things that we need…because college isn’t cheap anymore.”

Stuart raised over $50,000 worth of gear and donated it to people who lost theirs in the Camp Fire – specifically the Paradise Bass Club.

This is the fifth year Rick Reichenbach handed out his scholarship award. Typically, the scholarship awards ceremony would take place at the Oroville State Theatre, but due to coronavirus, it was held at the Rotary Park.

Rotary brings together a global network of volunteer leaders who work together, become friends, and dedicate their time and talent to tackle pressing humanitarian challenges.
