It was a family affair when Ray Schuldenfrei joined the Wilshire Rotary Club five years ago. At the time, his son-in-law Chase Campen was Club president; wife Dia and daughter Angelique Campen are also members.

“I’d been too busy to join, but after attending several lunch meetings as a guest, I recognized that Rotary was the organization that would allow me to do more for our community and the world than any of my many other pursuits,” said Schuldenfrei.

The real estate broker, who began his one-year term on July 1, plans to focus on increasing membership and playing a larger role in improving lives in the local community.

Patronizing Rotary’s annual holiday pumpkin patch and tree lot on Larchmont Blvd. is a great way for community members to benefit the area and mankind, since all proceeds go to charity work, said Schuldenfrei.

He has served as membership chairman and also booked speakers for the weekly meetings held at the Ebell. Along with fellow members, he distributed dictionaries to third graders in local schools, participated in Meals on Wheels and fed the homeless at local soup kitchens.

Schuldenfrei was also among a group of Rotarians who traveled to Puerto Rico earlier this year to distribute wheelchairs to those in need.

The 80-member group also supports Rotary International and its programs including Polio Plus, which works to eradicate the disease globally.

College sweethearts, Ray and Dia have been married “for decades,” and are partners in real estate sales with son-in-law Campen.

Schuldenfrei encourages community members to check out Rotary, which meets every Wednesday at noon at the Ebell Club of Los Angeles.

“The members are great folks… warm, welcoming and fun. The speakers are fascinating, informative and entertaining, and lunch at the Ebell is reason enough to join.”
