The Coronado Rotary Club was honored to receive the July 4th Coronado Parade’s 2018 Coronado Freedom Award along with First Place in its Division for the fifth consecutive year, proudly acknowledging the club’s support to military support groups, particularly combat-wounded warriors. Rotary hosts our modern-day patriots, the National Champion Wounded Warrior Wheelchair “Wolfpack” Basketball Team. The team is from the Warrior Foundation Freedom Station. These wounded warriors thrilled the parade crowd!

The Rotary float also represents Rotary’s major fundraisers in colorful banners that proudly display its 92 years of “Service above Self” to the Coronado, San Diego, military, and international communities. Volunteer community service projects such as Beach Cleanup, the annual Pancake Breakfast, Low Tide Ride & Stride, Golf Tournament, and Flags on the Avenue (189 flags placed along Orange Avenue for patriotic and national holidays) are highlighted with club members in costumes, banners, and announcements along the parade route. Dr. John Pedrotty, Rotary’s Fourth of July Committee Chair, was ably assisted by Vice-Chair Bob Rutherford and a very enthusiastic group of Rotarians as they celebrated Rotary and the Fourth of July.
