President José M. (Pepito) Rivero-Olmedo-Message
Our hearts are with our own DG Juanita Valentín-Morris whose mother passed away peacefully while sleeping. We paid our respects at the funeral home and after a mass a Christian burial was hold on Tuesday, October 2, 2018.  May our DG find comfort in the lovely memories treasured in her heart.
 
A reminder:  World Polio Day is rapidly approaching, October 24. Most people have heard of polio, but few know that the disease still affects children around the world. We can help by spreading the word and attending the Lighting of La Fortaleza building that evening. Details will be announced in the next few days.

-LAST WEEK-
 

Three Rotarians gave their opinions on a series of topics at a Rotary Current Events Panel held last week when questions on major issues were the topics on the menu.  Topics covering political issues, both local and stateside, (Carmen Yulin, Donald Trump, Brett Cavanaugh) to more mundane issues (favorite restaurant, favorite local agency (if any), and the nitty gritty of life in Puerto Rico.  The panelists, consisting of Dr. Norman Maldonaldo, John Richardson and Pat Schneider, were happy to give their measured thoughts on all the areas covered.  Good job, Sherman Wildman, on this innovative program.
