Vista Robles

About Our Chapter

NCL, Inc., Vista Robles Chapter is a group of mothers and daughters who have come together in a commitment to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences.
Members shall reside in or attend school within the attendance boundaries for TOHS, Newbury Park, Moorpark, or Simi Valley area. Like all NCL, Inc. Chapters, Vista Robles aims to foster the mother-daughter relationship by serving its communities together.

NCL, Inc., Vista Robles was founded in October 2010 and has grown to over 200 members. Created with the goal of leading by example, mothers and daughters learn from each other and support each other to reach our goals and dreams. Each member is responsible for investing in their own NCL Experience. Commitment to our mission is essential for a successful NCL, Inc. journey.

We celebrate our mother/daughter relationships throughout the NCL, Inc. year. Here is an example of our yearly celebrations:

SUMMER
Chapter Kick-Off Event
We kick off our NCL, Inc. year with a fun day at the beach. We play games and enjoy each other’s company, finishing our day by cleaning up our local beach.

FALL
Chapter Mother/Daughter Tea
Each grade level contributes to make the tea possible. We do EVERYTHING, from set up to clean up, and mothers and daughters work to make this event memorable for all. The Chapter Tea also features our Senior Class Modellette Program and introduces our new Members to the entire Chapter.

Chapter TT Day                                                                                                                                                      
This event is planned and executed by our Ticktocker Council. Each year, we alternate the focus of this event between the three pillars of our organization: Community Service, Leadership Development and Cultural Experiences. In recent years, we have met our leadership pillar with team building games and challenges, our philanthropy pillar by making blankets for Hillcrest Royale Retirement Community and Shelter Hope Pet Shop, and cultural pillar by having a movie night featuring Audrey Hepburn films.

WINTER
Joint Mother/Daughter Meeting
We flip roles once a year! At this meeting you will find the Vista Robles Board of Directors’ daughters sharing their mothers’ reports and running the meeting. A recent meeting also included a hands-on self-defense seminar.

Father/Daughter Event
Let’s not forget the dads! This is another Ticktocker Council planned event. All the girls in the Chapter contribute ideas for events to share with dad. Thus far, our Ticktocker Council has hosted such father/daughter fun-fests as an obstlace course and chili cook-off, an escape room and bowling.
