Welcome to Carlsbad Hi-Noon Rotary Club!
The Carlsbad Hi-Noon Rotary Club welcomes Rotarians and other visitors to its Monday meetings. A buffet lunch with salads and hot entrees is open at noon, with the business meeting beginning at 12:20 pm. We meet at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa, 5480 Grand Pacific Drive, Carlsbad, CA 92008. The historic gazebo (shown above) is a rehabilitation project of the club and now resides in Magee Park, Carlsbad.
The Club, chartered in February 1980, has nearly 100 members. The membership is very active and committed to the Rotary principle of "Service Above Self." The club sponsors an energetic Interact Club at Carlsbad High School and each year sends both facilitators and students to the annual RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) conference for high school juniors and the Rotary LEAD symposium for eighth graders. The club sponsors Oktoberfest held the first Saturday in October in Holiday Park, Carlsbad. A traditional family event, this year marks the 32nd anniversary of the Oktoberfest. Proceeds from Oktoberfest are shared with Carlsbad charities and used by the club for its many local community projects. The club also sponsors an annual Golf Tournament entitled "Teens and Marines" in the summer, with net proceeds used to fund scholarships for graduating high school students and for U.S. Marines continuing their educations at MiraCosta College. This tournament has raised approximately $260,000 in its 11-year history.
Additionally, the club also supports the AVID program at Carlsbad High School with a business and ethics conference, a literacy project at Jefferson Elementary School, the Carlsbad Educational Foundation, Hospice of the North Coast, The Assistance League-North Coast, Casa de Amparo, the North County Food Bank, the Veterans Association of North County, La Posada, Stand Up for Kids, the Carlsbad Boys and Girls Club, the Women's Resource Center and the CHS Music Festival.
