Hola. Hoping you had a good week, during which we had the opportunity to visit Tinto y Blanco twice. On Saturday, the District called an Intercitadina meeting which was well attended by our three metropolitan area clubs: Santurce, Rio Piedras and San Juan. All three presidents were there, John Shapiro, Marcos Perez Cruz, and me. A large group of members showed up. And then this past Tuesday was the second of the month, and the San Juan Club members know we gather there at that time, so we had an opportunity to meet again. There was only a small group, but the conversation was so good that we went past the usual time to go home.
Next Tuesday we have the Distinguished Citizen of the Year Award Dinner, at 6 PM in AFDA, please do not miss it. Call, text me or write so that we reserve a spot for you and your guests. Remember the kitchen needs a number to prepare the food.
This will be the last meeting of May. Before this fiscal year ends, there will only be four more meetings, how time has flown. And I hope that you have made plans to attend the District Conference June 28 to 30 in Costa Bahia resort in Guayanilla.
See you next Tuesday, have a nice weekend.

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.
