About Our Club

The Carlsbad Hi-Noon Rotary Club welcomes Rotarians and other visitors to its Monday meetings. In-person meetings include: a buffet lunch with salads and hot entrees is open at noon, with the business meeting beginning around 12:15 p.m. For the foreseeable future, a Zoom meeting option is available (refer to the club president for login directions). Visitors are always welcome to attend club meetings.

The Club, chartered in 1980, has over 75 members. It sponsors an active Rotary Interact Club at Carlsbad High School. Each year it sends both Rotary facilitators and high school students to the annual RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) conference and to the Rotary District's LEAD program for eighth graders. Each third grader in the Carlsbad Unified School District also receives his/her own dictionary from Carlsbad Hi-Noon Rotary. The club co-sponsors the Rotary Oktoberfeast jointly with the Carlsbad (evening) Club held during October citywide.  Proceeds from this event are shared with nonprofit community organizations and are used by the club for local and international community service projects. Brewfest is another major fundraiser for Carlsbad Hi-Noon Rotary, with proceeds used to fund scholarships for graduating high school students.

Each year Carlsbad Hi-Noon Rotary's AVID (Advancement Via Individualized Education) conference for students of Carlsbad High School provides an opportunity for them to discuss business, ethics and leadership with community leaders. Hi-Noon Rotary also provides physical and financial service to a literacy project at Jefferson Elementary School, the Carlsbad Educational Foundation, the Aqua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation, the Police and Fire Explorers, the Assistance League of the North Coast, Meals on Wheels, Veterans Association of North County, La Posada, the Carlsbad Christmas Bureau, Stand Up For Kids, Solutions for Change and a variety of other nonprofit organizations. 

The Club's International team assists in a variety of ways, including the building of a house in Tijuana, Mexico each year (House #21 was completed in April 2021). Schools in Belize now have potable water, electricity via a solar system, and computers as a result of Hi-Noon Rotary.  We assist in disaster relief, polio eradication, potable water and other projects worldwide.
