Montecito Bank & Trust chairman and CEO Janet Garufis has now added another hat to her collection.

In July Janet takes on the mantle as president of the Santa Barbara Symphony replacing current head honcho Don Gilman.

Her extensive community service includes working with the Sansum Clinic, the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara, the Music Academy of the West, Casa Pacifica, CASA, United Way and Habitat for Humanity, to name just a few.

Practical Jokester 

Queen Elizabeth‘s grandson, Prince Harry, is ever the prankster.

Royal author Katie Nicholl in a biography, Harry and William, recounts the time the 34-year-old Duke of Sussex was asked by Her Majesty to activate a standard voicemail on a cell phone she had been given.

The message the Vanity Fair and Daily Mail writer claims ran: “Hey, wassup? This is Liz.

“Sorry I’m away from the throne. For a hotline to Philip press one, for Charles press two, and for the corgis press three.”

The monarch was only told of Harry’s hoax message when her private secretary Robin Janvrin called up and got the “shock of his life,” according to one aide.
