Dear fellow Rotarians, 
Please help me with both messages sent last week. It is important for the members to get involved.
"In an effort to raise funds for the Club’s projects, in special for next year's Thanksgiving Lunch for The Boys and Girls Clubs, we will be sponsoring a silent auction during the upcoming months, COVID permitting. For that, we are requesting from all members donations of items (pieces of art, jewelry, timeshares weeks, etc.) in good conditions that we may put up for bids. Your support is needed for our San Juan Rotary Club be able to meet our community service and support goals. If you have something to contribute to the auction, please contact me or our President Elect, Maria de los A. Rivera at maria.rivera@pr.gt.com.
Our 7000 District Conference is set for Saturday 25th. of June of this year. The cost per person is $150.00. It includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and two coffee breaks. The San Juan Club is the host club. We need as many of you as possible, please join us, you will really enjoy it."
I will continue to contact as many members as I can, but please feel free to call me, send me a message or an email with your comments. My phone is 787-649-9426 and my email is ajcolorado@msn.com.

Rotarian Georgie- Greetings to you and the Rotary Disaster Relief & Recovery Team from the San Juan PR Club!
 
Thank you for sending the pictures and sharing the story below re: Owen Ingley, Co-Founder of PLENITUDE PR and his connection to D6970 / GAINESVILLE / UF.
 
This is certainly a timely and much needed ELDERCARE program in this Post-Hurricane Maria period.
 
Great outreach work / you and your husband along with the PLENITUD PR TEAM are certainly “changing lives.”  
 
Warmest regards.

Dear fellow Rotarians,
The Rotary Club of San Juan has the honor of hosting Resident Commissioner Rep. Jenniffer Gonzalez as our Speaker on October 13, 2020. We “ring the bell” at 12:30 PM and introduce the Speaker at 12:45PM.
Her presentation will be focused on Economic Development and Healthcare. Given the importance of these issues and our Speaker’s unquestionable expertise to address them, the club has made the decision to open the meeting to all District 7000 Rotarians who would like to join us. Our meetings are held in English and for the time being, totally virtual. All those who want to join us please use the ZOOM link provided in this email
Cordially,
Franklin Earle,
President      
 
CONGRATULATIONS to JOSE "PEPITO" RIVERO OLMEDO, who was honored by District 7000 for his outstanding efforts as Editor of San Juan Rotary's e-Garita. The weekly newsletter delivers the Rotary message and our Club activities to members and island fellow Rotarians.  
 
 
In her presentation Attorney Calero she cover macro events from 2000 to the present, including investment, consumption, employment and unemployment tendencies. The challenges we face in these time, as well as the delays in recuperation funds will also be covered.   But I think most of us will be most interested in Covid 19 impact, and the executive orders and their impact on consumer patterns, and their short term impact.
 
 

DISTRICT GOVERNOR Juanita Valentin Morris presented Rotary International's 100 YEARS OF MEMBERSHIP certificate to Club President Pepito. in recognition of San Juan Rotary's century of the Object of Rotary, Service Above Self.
