Dear fellow Rotarians,   
Please remember that some of our meetings are virtual and some are presential. Your participation is important in both, if possible. The virtual meetings give us the opportunities to get some speakers from abroad that could not participate otherwise. Also, some of our members that are residing outside of Puerto Rico can participate regularly. Please send me your comments. 
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.
See you next Tuesday. 
My very best to you all, and may God Bless,   
Tito

Rotarians from all island clubs are flying banners urging and thanking people in Puerto Rico, for their good and the good of others, to get the Covid-19 Vaccine.  San Juan Rotary's banner is located at 1469 Wilson Street, in the Condado, across the street from SuperMax.  Board members and Past Presidents Gerry Cumpiano and José "Pepito" Rivero-Olmedo P.D.G., are pictured with the very colorful banner.

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.
 
 
May 4, 2020.  Delivering 1,000 N/95 masks to Dr. Pablo Rodríguez Medical Director Trauma Center Centro Medico de Puerto Rico and Dr. Graciela Rivera, Intern Ob/Gyn Central Médico.  This is the only trauma center in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean!

Our first meeting was held yesterday on zoom. The presentation by Dr Steve Waterman and Dr Francisco Alvarado Ramy was informative and interesting. The relationship between The San Juan Rotary Club and the CDC, and the Health Department has been long and strong.
