Service Above Self!
Hello Rotary Friends,
It's that time of year again when Oceanside Rotary helps the homeless!  Please help make our annual tradition with Brother Bennos an overwhelming success!
This year we will be collecting frozen turkeys on November 12th.
Drop pf location is Oceanside Abbey Carpet & Floor, 4001 Avenida de la Plata, Oceanside 92056.  Drop off time is between 10 AM and 11 AM, we don't want those frozen turkeys defrosting before taking them to Brother Bennos, so please do not drop off the turkeys any earlier!
There will be a truck parked in front of Abbey's Carpets so just put them in the bed of the truck and we will do the rest!

Oceanside Rotary Club Members gathered Saturday morning to clean one of our local beaches.  Our club feels it is really important to serve our community.  We are striving to make a difference!


All who serve use paracord, which gets its name from parachute cord and can hold up to 550 lbs. of weight. The bracelet provides 7.5 feet of cord in an emergency. Paracord “Survival” Bracelets can be used to:

  • Secure camouflage nets to trees or vehicles
  • Build a makeshift shelter
  • Extend a security strap or rope to reach and haul heavy objects
  • Create a harness to extract an injured person from a bad location
  • Make a sling or splint


Rotarians at Work Day was held on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at Ivey Ranch in Oceanside.  Over 30 members and friends of the Rotary Club of Oceanside gathered for a morning of Community Service.  At the conclusion of painting the fences on the property a tree was planted in honor of the day and a BBQ meal was served.

Ivey Ranch is dedicated to encourage the interaction of those of all ages, with and without disabilities, by providing educational and recreational activities.  Since 1983 they have served children and adults with disabilities but will not exclude the able bodied, since interaction, inclusion and interaction are important components of their program.  They serve over 200 individuals a month.
Rotarians at Work Day is held on the last Saturday of April world wide.  The concept was conceived from District 5340 the district which our club falls in.  Each club chooses a specific project in the community and the club members participate though work and fundraising.   For more information call Renee at 760-518-5076.

Our club embarked five 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 1,230,399 like-minded Rotarians who feel the same!
