For the moment we are meeting via ZOOM.
      
Dear Fellow Rotarians,
 
For the las two weeks, we have initiated our meeting by reading the Four Way Test. I believe that it is a wonderful idea to start especially since we have quite a few guests and it is a way of presenting our values as Rotarians.
However, the reading in unison has been a little disjointed and that has detracted from the impact of the message.
In the future, I will try asking you to repeat each test after me to see if that remedies the situation.
Once we have tried it this way, if it works great, but if you do not think that it does, let me know and we will return to reading in unison.
Thank You,
 
Frank

Guest speaker, Zorimar Betancourt, Founder  and Executive Director of Fundación Stefano Steenbakkers Betancourt, gave a heartwarming narrative of how the tragic loss of her 17 year old son to a violent  criminal act, and the subsequent knowledge of how a year before he had donated his organs in the event of his death that saved the lives of five persons, turned her despair into positive action by organizing fund raising activities for people with chronic medical conditions who needed treatment here and in the states.   Hurricane Maria revealed to her the amount of people in the mountainous areas of our island that were disconnected from the rest of the island.  The Foundation took hot food, other necessities and concern and love to those in extreme need.  Zorimar continues her unconditional volunteerism with her dedication to the Foundation.    
 
 
 
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.

TROY W. FIELDS, RIP
 
Yesterday we learned the sad news of the passing of our CR Troy W. Fields.
We met Troy within the Rotary movement of Puerto Rico as a member of the Rotary Club of San Juan.
All of us who were able to share with Troy through the years are witnesses of his good humor, frank friendship, desire to serve others, and his special commitment to young people.
On behalf of Marilyn and myself, we extend our condolences to Anabel and her family, to all the members of Rotary Club San Juan, and to the entire great Rotary family in Puerto Rico.
Troy, we're going to miss you. May you enjoy eternal Peace in the company of our Lord.
 
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted”. Matthew 5:4
