We have successfully concluded another summer program and want to thank all of our supporters, participants, host families, staff, and volunteers who make this program run year after year.
The Encinitas Coastal Rotary Club held its annual Golf Ball Drop May 7 to raise funds and support the Navy SEAL Foundation and other local charities.
The event was held at the Encinitas Ranch Golf Course.
A fun gathering (with drinks, appetizers and dessert) was held at the clubhouse overlooking the hole where a helicopter dropped the purchased golf balls.
The three participants who purchased numbered/color coded golf balls that were closest to the flag (or in the hole) won cash prizes.
We are a spirited collection of professional men and women who meet weekly for lunch at Firefly Grill in Encinitas. Many of our members live and/or work in one of the five communities of Encinitas: Cardiff, Leucadia, Olivenhain, Old Encinitas or New Encinitas. We also have several members from the community of La Costa in South Carlsbad and from Solana Beach and Del Mar.
We encourage and enjoy visits by Rotarians from other clubs, nearby or anywhere in the world. Our meetings are characterized by a spirit of friendship, as we take the time out of our busy schedules to share experiences, discuss ideas and enjoy interesting luncheon speakers, searching for new ways to happily put "Service Above Self". Club members give back to our local and world communities through a variety of projects and events.

The Encinitas Coastal Rotary Club is using crowdfunding to raise funds to provide clean water to working families in the Dominican Republic. We are working with both local Rotarians there and with Aqua Clara International – a Michigan non-profit that has developed hollow membrane filters which can be attached to a 5 gallon bucket, and which produce water which is 99.999% pure. A single filter system will provide a family with clean water for ten years – for a total cost of $75! Check out our website:
