The Rotary Club of Carlsbad is a leadership organization made up of local business professionals and civic leaders.  We meet regularly, to get to know each other, form friendships and through that we are able to get things done in the Carlsbad, North San Diego County and the International community.
We are proud of the philanthropic work that we do locally in Carlsbad, and we are fortunate to very active members involved in international projects in Mexico, South America and South Africa.
In 2018, our club received the Best Club in the District Award (mid-sized category)!  Come join us and find out why.

Club Presentations
Sal Mariscal, cancer survivor happily announced that he was cured by Proton Therapy. This is Sal’s interesting story.  The average lifespan in 1900 was about 46 years. Today, we are all living longer, which is why we have what used to be rare diseases.
Debbie Fountain and Marie Jones-Kirk from the City of Carlsbad spoke about homelessness in Carlsbad.  The Carlsbad City Council has adopted a Homeless Response Plan, which is being led by the city's Housing & Neighborhood Services Department.
Kelly Luisi and her spouse Rich, are the founders of Homeless Veterans of San Diego.  Did you know that 9,116 people sleep homeless in San Diego each night? It is the mission of HVSD to put an end to the epidemic of homelessness among our veterans. No one that has served our country should have to sleep along side of freeways, in downtown doorways, under bridges, in tents on busy city streets, or in brush in canyons and parks.
The Rotary Club of Carlsbad's own Jim Pinto related his impressions of his recent trip to Egypt and Jordan and showed alot of pictures.
Steven Solomon, the Senior Annual Giving Officer for Rotary Foundation Zones 25 & 26, gave an impassioned and eloquent speech.  He said, "I cannot tell you, that by giving to The Rotary Foundation, you will rid the world of all its problems. But, I can tell you, that you will change people’s lives. In fact, I’m a person whose life has been changed by Rotary!"
