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.

Candidate for Governor of Puerto Rico, Pedro Pierluisi, feels that his four years as Secretary of Justice and eight years as Resident  Commissioner, gives him the experience, capability and relationships in Washington, plus total commitment to make a difference for the benefit of our people.   Three years of turmoil call for transforming the government to put first a growing economy where we can feel safe and live fully.  Two main issues are (1) to grow the economy and (2) to trust our government again.  The five-year fiscal plan needs to be revised to reflect government resources.  Our speaker will promote bio-tech companies, seek comprehensive tax reform, and Statehood for Puerto Rico.  A simple vote of Yes or No for Statehood.  If Statehood wins, as he is confident it will, we should put the issue to rest and get on with working together.  Thanks to Sherman Wildman for bringing us this timely program.

AAUW of Puerto Rico

San Juan Rotary has awarded a $1,200 grant to the AAUW of Puerto Rico to kick start a campaign to close the gender pay gap in Puerto. Closing this gap means greater financial security for Puerto Rico’s women and their families. The president of the AAUW of Puerto Rico, Betsy Parker (also a San Juan Rotarian) sees this partnership with Rotary  as an effective way to work together on a common goal.

The San Juan Rotary grant will specifically help to publicize the free online salary negotiation course called Work Smart. AAUW is not just offering this seminar, it is avidly working to get 10 million U.S. women to take it during the next five years:  AAUW of Puerto Rico wants 40,000 women in Puerto Rico to take the course.  Grant funds will be used for social media advertising, seminars and promotional materials.

AAUW members in our club include Pat Schneider, Angela Schlump, Juanita Morris, Carmen Hammel, Jennifer Bates, Hallee Paterson, Russ Paterson and Gerry Cumpiano. For more information about this project, contact Ms. Parker at
