A Short Video About Our Club!

Club Presentations
Ray Pearson introduced the Rotary District Speech Contest. Carlsbad Rotary has provided this platform for the debate teams for several years. Winners are from the District-wide competition and the sub-regional and regional level.  These high school kids always do great presentations.
Rules: Each presenter will speak on how the Rotary 4-way test affects special times in one life. Each speech was required to be at least 5 minutes and no longer than 7 minutes. The 5 speakers were initially introduced as A, B, C, D and E while 3 judges (initially anonymous) were in the audience.
Jerry Kern, Oceanside Councilman, was the evening's speaker and he spoke on a legislative update on the Decommissioning of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. After providing a history, he talked about used nuclear fuel management, priorities and community engagement, enabling federal legislation and state-level transportation planning.
After serving in the Air Force overseas, Jerry got his BS in Business Administration from SDSU. After being an educator for several years, Jerry was elected to Oceanside City Council in 2006 and is currently serving his third term. He is a member of the community engagement panel. He plans to run for a seat on the North County Board of Supervisors, District 5.
Rich & Amy Martin from Make-A-Wish Foundation, San Diego were our presenters.
Since 1980, Make-A-Wish® has given hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Make-A-Wish® San Diego grants the wishes of children eligible children, with life-threatening medical conditions, in San Diego and Imperial Counties.

Rotarians were treated to a compelling presentation by Outside the Bowl, an Oceanside-based charity that helps eliminate physical and spiritual starvation by building super kitchens in developing communities
The Carlsbad High School Speech Contest was held during our meeting.  This is one of the favorite meetings of the year for us. Carlsbad Rotary has provided this platform for the CHS debate team for several years. Winners will take part in a District-wide competition and the sub-regional and regional level.  We are very proud of these young students as they gain confidence in their speaking skills.
