Hola.  
Hope you are well.  As you know, I have requested your DONATION TO THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND.  Please send your check payable to the San Juan Rotary Club, to PO Box 192772 San Juan, PR 00919-2772 or text me 787-649-9425 if you want us to put your donation in your next invoice.  I appeal to your generosity and desire to serve our community, which is the principal purpose of Rotary.  Please do this now, before you forget, because we have to close this fund by the middle of June so that we can send the checks before the classes start in August. Thanks to those that have already contributed.
Last Tuesday we met in Tinto y Blanco, as we do on second Tuesdays.  During June, a lot of members are travelling, so only a few of us were free to go that evening.  But as usual, we had an enjoyable conversation and tasted good wine and food. 
Next Tuesday June 18 is the awards luncheon, where we will recognize those members that have devoted their time to the Club during the year.  There will not be a speaker, as is true also at our last meeting of the year on June 25.  At that meeting, the Governor for 2024-2025, Marco Belen, will be with us to take the oath of office to the new Board of Directors. 
Please join us next Tuesday, and guard yourself against the excessive heat.   Until then, 
 
Delia

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. 
 
Gracias
