Rotarians at Work Day is always the last Saturday of every April. Started in 2006 as a joint effort between two Rotary Districts (one in the United States and one in Mexico), Rotarians at Work Day continues to grow. Each year, Clubs around the world identify a hands-on project that all members can participate in to help their local community. The traditional project undertaken by the members of the Torrey Pines Rotary Club on this day was to clean the plaques of the honorable veterans at the Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial. 
The Torrey Pines Rotary Club is well represented at Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial, where the plaques of six current and former members are proudly and honorably displayed. They are:
  • Thomas Lee Ferrier, Captain, US Navy
  • George “Chip” Hayes III, Commander, US Navy
  • Dudley C. “Dud” Wray, Lt. Commander, US Navy
  • Don Yeckel, Captain, US Marine Corps
  • Gordon Shurtleff, Airman Second Class, US Air Force (along with his two brothers)
  • Max Gurney, Technical Sergeant 4, who is also commemorated on the “Return to Normandy” plaque, honoring the thousands of service members who participated in the Allied landings in Normandy on 6 June 1944.
