Oceanside Rotary 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 Oceanside Community.
 
Our Club generally meets on Fridays at noon, at El Camino Country Club located at 3202 Vista Way, Oceanside CA 93056.  The meetings begin at 12:30, but you are encouraged to come at noon for some great networking opportunities.  Members are not just limited to Fridays luncheons.  Please check out our event calendar and you will see that we engage in other activities such as after work socials, barbecues, Moonlight theater performances, work parties, international projects, fundraising and so much more!  If you are interested in networking and building friendships in the Oceanside Community, Oceanside Rotary is the club for you!
 
The Motto of Rotary is "Service Above Self", and we take this to heart with all of our activities!
 
Our club embarked three years ago on a multi-year project under the direction of Rotarian Larry Hatter, to help bring meaningful, positive change to an area of our city that has been notorious for gang violence - Crown Heights.  We have entered into a partnership with Life Line that provides services to the target area and with the Oceanside Unified School District.  A team of dedicated Rotarian's volunteer to take youth out of this area and expose them to basketball games, Padres games, museums, theater, music concerts, tours of Camp Pendleton, and the Oceanside Harbor.  Funding for this project is raised by members of the Oceanside Rotary Club and enhanced by a matching grant from Rotary District 5340.
 
Oceanside Rotary supports a variety of local and international projects.  Through Rotary International, we support the international efforts of Rotary to eradicate polio world-wide!  Rotary and the Gates Foundation are determined not to let Polio make a come back!
 
If you feel compelled to make a difference in your community please join the 1,222,340 like-minded Rotarians who feel the same!

The members of the Oceanside Rotary Club enjoyed a Rotarians at Work Day in Oceanside.  Rotarians at Work Day started in our District in 2006.  The day became so infectious that Rotary Clubs from around the world have now embraced the concept.  Generally the fourth Saturday in April is proclaimed as Rotarians at  Work Day.  Clubs are encouraged to choose work project in their community and encourage members in the participate for the day.
 
This years event chair Renee Richardson wanted to put a little spin on the event. She was pleased to announce the Club's 92 Anniversary and the Rotarians at Work Day will be combined in a celebration.  Members of the Oceanside Rotary Club were instrumental in helping to move the Blade Tribune Building from downtown Oceanside to Heritage Park in 1975.  The building was built in 1893 and members of our club have cleaned and made minor repairs to this historic building over the last few months.
 
Saturday, April 23, 2016 at Heritage Park the club members assembled and installed new benches and planters for the front porch of the Blade Building.  Later in the day the club members changed into attire from the 1800's and posed for a vintage picture!  Family and friends then enjoyed a BBQ and fellowship in the beautiful park.
