Hola.
Hope you had a nice week. Last Saturday we went to the Rio Piedras Clubhouse to celebrate the Paul Harris Gala at which many of us were recognized for our advancement in the Foundation's membership. Several of us were there, Maria with her husband Carlos, Juanita, Gorgie, Gerry and Tito and me. The Governor, Maria del Carmen, was also there with her husband Tony. It was a very elegant activity, the company was superb, the food and the music were exceptionally good.
 
On Tuesday there was this month's Zoom meeting, in which we had Rushton Hurley from the eClub in Silicon Valley talk about Creative Solutions for the Global Good, which has been described as very inspirational, to say the least.
 
Next activity:  5K for Peace, against Polio. That is next Sunday at: Complejo Deportivo Edgar Martínez in Higuillar, Dorado, March 3, 2024. 
 
Next week we will meet again at AFDA. Until then, have a happy week.

Rushton Hurley is a master storyteller with a very important story to tell. As director of Innovation, as a leader in the Rotary movement, as a teacher, speaker he can combine all these elements to help students, Rotarians and anyone who can listen think in more creative ways. He suggested that students partner up with students from other schools to exchange ideas. So please let,s keep the discussion open and see how we can collaborate.
Gerry
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.

FR Jose Irizarry explained today , September 22, the otogram for Veteranos Boricuas. He also highlighted our San Juan Rotary Club not only wearing our polo but also mentioned yesterday's island wide event promoted by PRoPaz.
