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 p.m. We meet at the Hilton Garden Inn, 6450 Carlsbad Boulevard, Carlsbad, CA 92011. The historic gazebo (shown above) is a rehabilitation project of the club and now sits in Magee Park.
The Club, chartered in 1980, has 97 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 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 31th 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" on August 8, 2013, with net proceeds used to fund scholarships for graduating high school students and for U.S. Marines continuing their educations at MiraCosta College. As a result of this tournament (during FY 2011-2012) Hi-Noon Rotary funded $27,000 in CHS scholarships, and $8,000 for Marines.
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, 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.
