Our District Conference will be held at the Sheraton Old San Juan during the weekend of 26-28 April 2019.  There is still time to register. You will find the registration form at:  www.distritorotario7000.org .  The District and our own DG Juanita Valentín Morris is counting on you to make an appearance and enjoy the Gala Dinner, as well as the well-planned sessions.
 
I want to thank all the members and visitors who showed up to our Rotary Revelry last Thursday (April 04, 2019) on Shimmy’s Bayside Rest. at Paseo Caribe.  Special thanks to FR Raymond Erb for the arrangements for this successful, happy event.  We shared over two hours of fellowship and happiness.  We had the visit of our DG Juanita Valentín Morris; PDG Sylvia Maisonet; DGN Mercedes Peguero; her husband, FR Agustín Montañez Allman (Arecibo RC); and the wives of many of our members.  We all enjoyed and had the opportunity to know us better.
Regards,
Pepito
ROTARIANS FROM THE ROTARY CLUBS OF SANTA CRUZ, SAN JOSE & MODESTO CALIFORNIA
 

Joined us at our meeting last week. These Rotarians worked with our Club and P.E.C.E.S. to do a Rotary International Global Grant in Punta Santiago, a project that helped 10 small businesses re-open by buying the equipment they needed and training them in budgeting and planning.  The Grant also trained 50 underserved kids to be carpenters. These 25 Rotarians from District 5170 and 5220, who funded this project, came to Puerto Rico to visit the project. 

 Pictured are the 25 Rotarians together with our District Governor, Juanita Valentin Morris, our President Jose "Pepito" Rivero Olmedo   and San Juan Rotary Club's Director of Community Service, Georganna Hildebrand.

DISTRICT 7000-CONFERENCE 2019
-LAST WEEK-
 

Guest speaker, Kaleb Rodriguez, President of KERC's International Experiences, a company that provides business and social etiquette experiences, gave a lively and spirited talk on the topic, "Who is a Boriqua".  Kaleb has a long association with promoting Puerto Rico tourism at the international and local levels.  At times, bordering on the humorous, our speaker recounted the history of the island dating back to its discovery.  He noted that while we are surrounded by saints (St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. Kitts, etc., our island is no saint.)  Aside from his dedication to promoting tourism for Puerto Rico, Kaleb is the chairman of the Board of Academia Bautista de Puerto Nuevo, a non-profit, private school, offering high quality education to 1,000 students of middle- and lower-income families.

Another interesting program, thanks to Chairman Sherman Wildman.
