During the 100th Birthday celebration of our Club we will be honored by the visit of the Rotary International President, Barry Rassin with his wife Esther.  On Saturday, August 4, 2018, starting at 6:00 PM, we will have a gala dinner at the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino of the convention district.  We will have recognitions and some surprises.  If you haven’t made your reservation yet, it is important that you contact our Executive Secretary, Pat Schneider, 787-342-6179 or 787-724-8734 and reserve a seat for your companion.  I understand that we have been living the Rotary International motto, Be the Inspiration” since the first meeting back in 1918.  We have hundreds of reasons to celebrate. Let’s show the Rotary International President and all the distinguished visitors how proud and inspired we are.

Attorney Agustin Montanez-Allman, Advocate for Puerto Rico Veterans, has a lengthy career in voluntary and public service since his early days as an Eagle Scout.  Born in San Juan, he grew up in Arecibo and earned a BA in Political Science from Ohio University.  As a 2nd Lt. in the US Army, he was ordered to active duty in Operations Dessert Shield & Dessert Storm.  Holder of a Bronze Star, he earned his law degree from Inter-American U.  With 87,000 Puerto Rico veterans, our speaker has regained certification for the Home for Retired Veterans, undertook a dormant project to build a new State Cemetery in Aguadilla, which was inaugurated in 2014, and is currently reorganizing to transform the local office into a proactive service-oriented organization, engaging in partnerships across State lines.  Defending the rights, not only of all US veterans in Puerto Rico, but also of all military personnel (Army Reserve, Marines, Navy and National Guard, serving in Puerto Rico, is one of his major goals.  A Rotarian in the Arecibo Club, his wife, Mercedes, is Club President and on her way to District Governor in 2020-21.
