A Short Video About Our Club!

Club Presentations
 Vanessa Kean talked about the Semper Fi Fund .  The presentation started with a touching video of what this organization does for injured service men and women. The story began in the spring of 2003...
Linda Sundram gave a passionate, spirited presentation on The Rotary Club of Camp Pendleton. Chartered in 2005, this was the first Rotary Club on a military installation. The club has a current membership of 17 individuals who like to consider themselves small, but mighty.
This was the annual Rotary Christmas party for children, our enjoyable annual event! 
Julie Norby welcomed all the children and their guests. After some suspense that he was delayed because of fire and smoke along his route to Carlsbad, Santa David Brahms arrived. He always makes a point of going around to say hello and embrace each and every one of the visiting children.  As the children got increasingly excited, the toys were organized and arranged up by Santa helper Kathy Kailikole. One by one, each child was named and received their personal toys directly from Santa Brahms, hugged and sitting on his ample lap. They were free to feel and tug on his magnificent beard.
The ceremony continued for some time, and everyone enjoyed the expectations and excited happiness of each of the children.
Following the gift-giving ceremonies, there was ample time to take pictures with Santa Brahms, before he continued on his long journeys to delivery toys to other deserving children. 
Ed Hoffer spent 30 years on active duty in the Army, retiring as a full Colonel. For 17 of these years, Korea (both North and South) was part of his scope of responsibilities. He commanded the 6th Battalion 37th Field Artillery in the Republic of Korea. He was twice awarded the Defense Superior Service Medal by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for superior meritorious service.  Ed Hoffer’s father was a longtime Rotarian and past president of the Rotary club in Camarillo, CA.

Bruce Bandemer and Vinnie Ahuja presented the program. Their subject was the Rotary Club of Carlsbad Foundation that funds scholarships for local students.
The Foundation is organized as a 501(C)(3), Federal ID# 95-3489812 not for profit organization. Since 1980 this foundation has awarded hundreds of scholarships to students in the community, giving many young adults a chance to fulfill their dreams.
