Dear fellow Rotarians, 
Thanks to all for choosing me as your President for 21/22. It is a great honor for me and I can assure you that I will do my best to fulfill my duties to the best of my capacity. 
Working during the past year with Frank and the rest of the 20/21 Board has taught me the value of our San Juan Club and of participating in the Rotarian international world. My thanks to all of them and I am very glad that most of them will continue to work with me during year 21/22. 
Past Tuesday I was sworn in as President of the San Juan Club by DG Mercedes Peguero. My thanks to her for participating in the ceremony. Thanks also to all the others that participated in the activity, specially to all the Club’s Past Presidents (they were many) and to 21/22 DG Elect, Agustin Montañez. 
It was a very special moment for me and my family, which I enjoyed tremendously. Thanks again to all.  
I have many Ideas of things that we can do together during this new year. And I will be discussing them with you all. But much more important are your ideas and your recommendations of ways in which we can improve our club and what we do for those in need. Ours is a Club of Love and Giving. Let’s make it better every day. 
My phone is 787-649-9426 and my email is Please contact me and let me know of your ideas, comments and recommendations 
My very best to you all, and may God Bless, 
Receiving Outstanding Service Awards from our District 7000 were Juanita Morris and Jorge Gonzalez.

At the annual Change of Command meeting, President Frank Earle spoke of the challenges and the rewards of leading the Club this past year.  He then extended his appreciation and thanks to three outgoing 20-21 Board members:  Karol Oviedo, Michele Crespo-Davila, and Warwick Butler.  He then called upon the incoming 21-22 Board Officers and Directors to come forward.  As part of the Installation Ceremony, eleven Past Presidents of San Juan Rotary escorted the incoming President to the podium where the District Governor administered the Oath.  
District Governor, Mercedes Peguero administered the Oath of Office to, Antonio Colorado, San Juan Rotary's 21-22 President. The outgoing and incoming Presidents exchanged respective lapel pins.  The incoming Board was then sworn in by DG Mercedes.  
After the passing of the symbolic gavel of office, a commemorative plaque was presented to 20-21 President Frank Earle by our new 21-22 President Antonio Colorado.
President Antonio "Tito" Colorado then spoke of his plans, hopes and expectations to maintain the high standards of Rotary International and San Juan Rotary.  He expressed the need for continued enthusiasm of all Rotarians.  One item, high on his list, is to increase our membership. 
Seems we are off to another banner year!
