Ray Hamada (Bellflower)
Ray Hamada, is a long-time resident of Bellflower and an active volunteer in the community. After retiring from a career at the City of Irwindale, Ray directed his passion for serving others to the Bellflower Kiwanis Club in 2009. He has volunteered countless hours supervising and transporting local youths to access services to keep them off of the streets and out of trouble.
Ray's dedication to service eventually elevated him to the position of Lieutenant Governor of Division 13 of Kiwanis International. During his tenure as Lieutenant Governor, he received the Hall of Fame Award.
Ray sets an example as a leader. He is always the first to open the Kiwanis Hall when it is needed, and is the last one to leave after activities are over. Ray's dedication to making Bellflower a better place to live, and for making meaningful impacts in the lives of its young community members is truly something to be proud of and demonstrates that anyone can find a way to educate, empower and engage their community.
