Hola.  This week the meeting was at Tinto y Blanco.   I couldn't attend but was told that everybody had a great time, tasting the good wines and food of Tinto.
Next Tuesday we have been announcing that our meeting will be in the evening at AFDA, 6 PM.  The speaker will be Daven Michaels, businessman and New York Times Best Selling Author.  He is also the President of the San Juan Social Club.  Two hundred and fifty members of that club went on a cruise last March, including from our Rotary Club, Maria, Antonia, Tito and I, and had a great time.  It was not only an opportunity to socialize but also to meet entrepreneurs, and many business connections were created.  There will be another cruise in 2025 and Daven will give us the details so that all of you are informed in case you would want to go. There will be appetizers and one glass of wine, and the cost of the activity is $30.00.
Tomorrow Saturday in Arecibo, the PETS reunion for next year's officials will be celebrated.  Please join us, because the more you know about Rotary, the better member you will be.
Please write in your calendar May 21, the Dinner to celebrate this year's Citizen of the Year Award, at AFDA at 6 PM.
Have a great weekend.  Take care.

Rotarians Gerry Hildebrand, Salvatore Nolfo, Maria de Los Angeles Rivera and Georgie Hildebrand started San Juan Rotary Club’s newest Community Service Project last Friday Nov. 10.  We read to15 youngsters at the Llorens Torres Montessori School.  This begins an ongoing project with Instituto Nueva Escuela to assist in their schools by reading to the children in English and Spanish.  We had a great time reading about a young Puerto Rican girl who wanted to fly her kite and become a pilot.  We each took a part in the story and acted it our for the children in English and Spanish. 
 
This project will take place in the Llorens Torres and Manuel Elzaburu schools.  Please contact Georgie Hildebrand ay 831-345-5299 if you are interested in participating in this project.
