The Rotary Club of Carlsbad is a leadership organization made up of local business professionals and civic leaders.  We meet regularly, to get to know each other, form friendships and through that we are able to get things done in the Carlsbad, North San Diego County and the International community.
We are proud of the philanthropic work that we do locally in Carlsbad, and we are fortunate to very active members involved in international projects in Mexico, South America and South Africa.

Russ Hanthorn presented the program: The Malawi Project of 2003.
Recognizing a serious need for wheelchairs in third-world countries, Rotary set out to raise $50,000 – and actually raised $ 160,000 – which bought 2,400 wheelchairs.   9 Rotarians went to Malawi to deliver the chairs.
