The Original Social Network ...

Rotary is a leadership organization …

We’re made up of local business, professional and civic leaders. We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships, and through that, we’re able to get things done in our community.  
  • We build lifelong relationships
  • We honor our commitments
  • We connect diverse perspectives
  • We apply our leadership and expertise to solve social issues

We had the culminating event and biggest party of the year on Thursday night at the "Demotion Party" where we bid farewell to 2017-18 President Mike Fuqua and welcomed to office 2018-19 President Doug Dawson. 
Last month, over 30 members of the Rancho Bernardo Rotary Club attended the dedication of the new Abraxas Orchard in the school’s Community Garden. Rancho Bernardo Rotary recently donated 14 fruit trees to the garden.
A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds.  A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.”

The Rancho Bernardo Rotary Club recently presented their annual Scholarship Awards to Outstanding Rancho Bernardo and Del Norte High School Students and two Special Scholarships for Determination and Perseverance in Managing Uncommon Difficulties.

Our Annual "Rotarians at Work" project was this past Saturday, April 30th at BOYS & GIRLS CLUB of 4S Ranch, located at: 16118 4S Ranch Pkwy. This project was exciting. RB Rotarians turn a nice size storage room (filled with "Stuff" from the floor to the ceiling - almost!) into a Children's Playroom. It was fun and rewarding to see the end result!

BIG Thank You to Madelyn Reina and her husband who hosted a TGIX party this past Saturday evening 9/27 at their home.

As part of Rancho Bernardo Rotary’s program to welcome our new members, this past Monday March 23, 2015, the club had a “Fireside Chat” to allow the new members an opportunity to interact with the current Board and committee chairs. It was held at Carvers Restaurant where lively “round table” discussions took place and refreshments were served.

For a half-century, Rancho Bernardo Rotarians have been living their motto of “Service Above Self.” More than 100 Rotarians and their friends gathered on Dec. 4 to celebrate the Rotary Club of Rancho Bernardo’s 50th anniversary with a party at Maderas Golf Club in Poway. “I thought the event was awesome, an opportunity to reflect on the (club’s) history and set the stage for the future,” said President Don Glover. Photo and article courtesy of the Rancho Bernardo News Journal 


Mayor Kevin Faulconer told Rancho Bernardo “Noon” Rotarians that it is efforts like theirs that help make San Diego a great community.

In a nod to the international organization’s motto of “service above self,” Faulconer told them in his opening remarks that it is “great” for their community and the city that they “care enough to get involved and make a difference."
