If you prefer a vegetarian dish with fish OR a purely vegetarian dish, please tell it to the waiter as you are seated.  This is a great timesaver.

Arch Klumph, considered the father of The Rotary Foundation, said in 1930:  “ Money alone does little good; individual service is helpless without money; the two together can be a godsend to civilization.”  Service to our local and global communities is our mission as Rotarians.  Financial support for service projects is available to Rotary clubs through grants directly from the District (District Club Grants) and from The Rotary Foundation (Global Grants).  Generally speaking, District Club Grant projects are for smaller, usually local, projects whereas Global Grants are for larger international projects.  All clubs are encouraged to make use of these grants and The Foundation Coordinators, as well as members of the Grant Committee, stand ready to answer questions and assist as needed.
          Important to remember:  clubs requesting grants must meet two basic requirements.  First, the club must have a current Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by the club president and president elect.  Secondly, at least one, and preferably two or three, club members must complete the on-line grant training within the current or past Rotary year and must appear as one or more of the contact persons for the grant.
          District Club Grant projects support short-term, humanitarian projects that benefit local or foreign committees.  Once a year, a club may request grant funds for a project or may collaborate with another club’s project.  There is a maximum of five clubs per project.
          You are encouraged to be creative and select projects that meet special needs in your local or global community.

Congratulations to new Paul Harris Fellows, AMADEO FRANCIS, RUSSELL PATTERSON & HALLEE PATTERSON.

Guest speaker, Dr. Axel Kaiser's, theme was "Intellectuals, Ideolog and Economic Policy".  Born in Santiago de Chile in 1981, he is a libertarian lawyer who speaks clearly, directly and you either love him or hate him.  He studies includes a Masters in Finance and a PhD in Philosophy from the U of Heidelberg.  Touching on the immense economic crisis of Puerto Rico, he said this is the type of situation that brought on a Chevez and a Maduro.  Our speaker is a firm believer in limited government and the protection of private property.  He believes that government's primary function is the protection of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  (Sound familiar?)  Dr. Kaiser further believes that the worst thing a country can do is to redistribute the wealth of the productive and channel It to the nonproductive through entitlements because it reduces the incentive to work.  Quoting Edmund Burke: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

Thanks go to Rotarian Ricardo Betancourt for bringing us this internationally renown economist, lawyer and author.
