President Frank Earle Message
Fellow Rotarians,
My mission for 2020-2021 is to increase membership. One way that has been suggested to me is to have an open house where as many members as possible invite a friend or acquaintance  whose interests are close to those of the club,  that is: who we are what we do. (We probably will need a well prepare power point.) We would also make it a social event where potential new members get to meet our members. I think that this is a good step toward attracting new members, but I am not sure that done virtually it would have the same impact as being able to do it in person. If you have any thoughts or ideas, please let me know.
Also, we continue to volunteer to help the Fundación Stefano distribute food to those in need, both individual ad organization. This will takes place in the parking of St Patricio Plaza behind Bed Bath and Beyond on Monday (July 27, 2020) from 8:30 AM until approximately 12M.
THE FOLLOWING CANDIDATES are being proposed for membership in the Rotary Club of San Juan:
Owner, JBM Enterprises LLC
Dorado, PR
Classification: Management Consultant 
Sponsor: Georganna Hildebrand
Owner, Barquin Group Enterprises Corp.
Classification: Education Private Bilingual
(SJ Rotarian 2004-2012)
Sponsor: Patricia Schneider
Any objection must be addressed to the Secretary and received by July 27.  
The final decision rests with the Board of Directors.
Need covid/masks and food
We are looking for volunteers to help identify areas that need covid/masks and food.  And also volunteers to help distribute these.  The masks are not for individuals, they are for institutions.  The food is for needy families.  There is a very short lead time for this to occur so if you can help please contact Gerry Cumpiano @ or call him.
The Rotary Club of San Juan has written a Global Grant with Para La Naturaleza for $289,000 which supports a new generation of regenerative farmers with the aim of transforming Puerto Rico's broken food system.  Salvador Coleman Tio manages and is responsible for the execution of this project.  Trained as a lawyer, specializes in agroecology, as a means of developing a sustainable food system in Puerto Rico that is economically viable, socially just and ecologically sensitive.  He has worked in the public sector as the Fishing Program Director of the Dept. of Agriculture (2013-2015), as a consultant in sustainable agriculture and rural economic development for the model forest of Puerto Rico (2015-2016) , as well as in the private sector where he spearheaded recovery efforts after Hurricane Maria for small scale farmers, beekeepers and fisherman serving as the Agriculture and Fisheries Specialist for Mercy Corps in Puerto Rico (2018-2019).
