Roots and Action (Raices y Action), was inspired by the work and life of legendary Puerto Rican leader, Antonia Pantoja. Our guest speakers, Barbara Vlahides and Tere Martinez, gave a most lively interesting talk about their project that teaches and inspires, through theater educational workshops, young Puerto Ricans to lead and change what they want to see in their country. Co-Founder, Educator and Artistic Director, Tere, and Co-Founder, Barbara, Executive Director, have seen the results when engaging students through drama. That is when most of the learning happens. A very upbeat and animated program.

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.
