About once a month, our dedicated Rotarians meet with members of other Escondido Rotary clubs, Street Stewards, our Interact Club and often our local Boy Scout Troop to clean up the area around the Center City/78 interchange.
Twice a month, led by Kelly Cloud, Rotarians cook and serve dinner at Haven House in Escondido

Escondido Shines is an initiative by the Rotary Club of Escondido to find, honor and celebrate members of our community that are making a difference.
Each spring on Rotarians at Work day, a crew from our club gather with others to clean up and improve the grounds around San Pasqual Academy.
In 2021 a team from our club worked with the Rangers at Dixon Lake and other service clubs to improve the trails around the lake.
As COVID shut down in-person education, Ron Smith led a group of Rotarians and their families to build 150 portable desks for families in our city. Aelot Air Conditioning generously provide the space for us to build and assemble the desks.
During COVID, we were unable to conduct our major fundraiser, Coeur De Cuisine. The intrepid Alexandra Keegan organized a Hike-A-Thon to raise some of the funds we needed to keep our mission going forward.
Also spearheaded by Alex Keegan, we are building and installing more Little Free Libraries into neighborhoods around our city.
The general meeting is Noon every Tuesday at The California Center for the Arts, 340 North Escondido Boulevard (map).
