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.
Congratulations to Valentina Rivera-Muñoz
 (ROTARY-Scholarship Holder)
This young lady, 24-years old, from San Juan, Puerto Rico, completed her Bachelor’s Degree at the University of the Sacred Heart (“Universidad del Sagrado Corazón”) in Psychology. She has always been involved in community service and striving to help wherever possible.  She knew a Master Degree in Peace and Justice was the right choice after graduating.  She applied for a global grant scholarship to be able to pursue her dream.
Our Rotary Club of San Juan (D-7000) along with the Rotary Club of La Jolla Triangle (D-5340) submitted the application to Rotary International (Rotary Grants).  On July 11, 2017, she was awarded the scholarship in the amount of $45,000 to attend the University of San Diego, Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies, for the 2017-2019 academic years.
Now she is going to San Diego, California, to pursue her dreams of helping communities from around the world.  None of this would have been possible without the extraordinary help of the Rotary Club of San Juan, P.R.
Dual speakers and cousins, Virginia Pennock and William Pennock, came armed with photographic memorabilia of their family's history as one of the oldest agricultural and landscaping contributors to our island.  Pennock Gardens began in 1899.  Virginia received her degree in Landscaping Architecture at the U of Georgia.  William "Billy" got his BA in Agricultural Science at the U of Florida.  He saw combat duty in Vietnam and is a Lt. Col. in the Army Reserves. As they took turns talking, both had interesting recollections of the family business and our island where they were born and raised. After the adjournment gong rang, many Rotarians stayed to share informal time with the two guest speakers. 
Another fine program, thanks to Chairman Warwick Butler.
