La Jolla Sunrise Rotary does its part for San Pasqual Academy

Members of La Jolla Sunrise Rotary spent their Day at Work on Saturday at the at San Pasqual Academy, a residential high school for foster teens in Escondido.

They joined Coronado, Rancho Santa Fe and Escondido Rotaries in planting an entire watermelon patch for the school, as well as hundreds of tomato plants, and weeded and fertilized trees and strawberry plants.

When the planting was done, six San Pasqual students fed the hungry group with fried chicken and barbecued ribs.

“For the first three years, we fixed houses around the perimeter of the school,” said Lauren Pickard, a member of La Jolla Sunrise Rotary and coordinator of the annual event.
“We painted houses inside and out, furnished a home, renovated a bathroom and landscaped. Beginning in 2008, we turned our attention to San Pasqual’s vast fruit and vegetable garden.
