Rotarians rise to occasion for worldwide at work day

ENCINITAS – As part of the worldwide Rotarians At Work Day, members from the Rancho Santa Fe Rotary Club volunteered at the San Diego Botanic Gardens Saturday, helping to paint, spread mulch and trim back seeding plants. 

Julian Duval, president and CEO of the gardens and member of the Encinitas Rotary Club was very appreciative of the volunteering support saying that the gardens depend so heavily on volunteers. He added that volunteering was what Rotary Clubs were all about, “service above self.”

The Rotarians At Work Day, which is the last Saturday in April each year, began in 2006, challenging clubs worldwide to undertake community service projects.
