-LAST WEEK-
 
 
We had three guests, all of whom are key participants in an important historical project, the restoration of Governor Sila Calderone's childhood home.  Fellow Rotarian, LANCE BRILLIANTINE, is a retired partner from Deloitte Consulting for Leadership Development.  With undergraduate and Master's Degrees from NYU in Inter-related Arts and Aesthetics, he also served as a adjunct professor.  He has been a visitor, and now resident, of Puerto Rico for more than 35 years.  MARICARMEN CONAWAY, is an architect with degrees from Barcelona, UPR and American U in DC.  Fonder of MC Estudio de Arquitectura, with a focus on historic preservation and landscape.  ADAM FREED is the Senior VP of Creative Development for FLIK Hospitality Group, a billion dollar organization servicing Fortune 100 clients throughout the US.  Adam's Art History studies at NYU transitioned him to a hospitality career, graduating from the Culinary Institute of America and ultimately became VP of Dining Services in NY and LA for Drexel Burnham Lambert, before assuming his present position.  
         The restoring and remodeling is located at 463 Avenida Sagrado Corazon and is beautiful to behold.  Built in 1963, at the beginning, there was a surprising resistance from some of the community.  With progress not possible with no change, nothing remains as it was but the romance and nostalgia remain.   So, now there is community pride in the tremendous preservation efforts made by our trio of speakers on this landmark property in the heart of Santurce.
