Oceanside Rotary and San Luis Rey Rotary Saving One Child at a Time
The Oceanside Rotary Club and the San Luis Rey Rotary Club teamed up for Rotarians at Work Day by participating in a Science Lab day in Crown Heights (Oceanside).
Crown Heights is one of the poorest, and recently most violence-stricken neighborhood in Oceanside. With community support, Lifeline has created a safe haven for children, providing homework assistance, tutoring and school support.
Twenty five Rotarian's spent the morning running Science Stem classes and organizing the Centers library. Each child was given a back pack with the Rotary emblem and the parents participated in receiving gift cards to Walmart. After all the work was finished the Rotarian's mingled with the kids and celebrated with Pizza!
Lifeline has provided a safe haven for these children. The kids walk in the door with goals in mind: finishing my homework, choose positive role models and resist gang invitations.
The Rotarian's that participated walked away with a sense of pride having made a difference in the day of a child!

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.
