Dear Rotarians:
 
This week we had the visit of Vivian Arthur, who talked about the challenges and needs of the older population in Puerto Rico. In specific, how to reduce the gap between generations in Puerto Rico.
 
Please join us in our next social/evening event on FEBRUARY 7, 2023 at Tinto y Blanco in Hato Rey. Please bring your guests and prospective members for the club! Let us have fun!
 
On February 14, our lunch meeting will be at Chocobar Cortes in Old San Juan. Please let me know if you plan to attend and how many guests you will bring. We will have a great lunch, chocolate tasting and a tour of their art gallery.
 
On March 14, 2023 we will have our first Distinguished Citizen Award ceremony at AFDA at 6pm. More details to come.
 
The Board of Directors and I are counting on all your support and commitment to achieve our goals and take our club into the future. We are still looking for volunteers to join our five committees. Please let me know which one you would like to join. If you have any concerns or issues, please bring them to my attention along with your ideas and recommendations.
 
My phone is 787-525-4544 and my email is maria.rivera@pr.gt.com. Call me to share your concerns and ideas to make the best of our Club.

Last Saturday (Nov. 05, 2022) 180 people showed up to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Interact Clubs. The event which was held in the Arecibo Country Club gave recognition to the students and leaders that have given of themselves for the cause. Not just that there was fun and games for all. The Rotary Club of San Juan's Interact Club from the Caribbean Preparatory School was in charge of the decoration, with some economic support of our club.
