Dear fellow Rotarians,
Rotary is service and fellowship. Next week we will be able to see both in action. Rotarians and Interactors from New Hampshire will be in Puerto Rico doing volunteer work in Cayey and Vega Baja. Jorge Gonzalez, Jose Irizarry, and I have been heavily involved organizing their schedule. For this reason, our Tuesday meeting will be held on Monday, and everyone is invited to visit with our friends from New Hampshire and have lunch at Jorge’s finca in Cayey. Pepito will post the pin on how to get there. It will be a lot of fun to meet Rotarians from another district and meet very active and highly motivated Interact students. Please do carpooling and make the trip lively by getting to know your Rotarian friends along the way.
We look forward to seeing you there. It would be great if you could let Jorge know if you are going. Following his German connections, there will be interesting sausages to taste besides local Puerto Rican food.
Yours in Rotary,
President Delia Colorado Message
Belated HAPPY VALENTINE’S Day. This year the day coincided with Ash Wednesday, so I for my part celebrated Valentine's Day in Tinto y Blanco the previous evening, with the nice group of fellow Rotarians that were there. Then on Wednesday we went to church. Hope you all had a happy dual celebration.
On Tuesday afternoon, before going to Tinto y Blanco, we went to an activity at Sagrado Corazon University entitled Conversatorio de Civismo Empresarial sponsored by the Foundation of the Supreme Court of Puerto Rico. The discussion of the theme, entrepreneurial civic responsibility, was very well developed by the panelists. This is a topic that should be discussed in classrooms and newspapers constantly, of which we have too little of. Our Club was represented by President Elect Jorge Gonzalez, Juanita Morris, Tito, and me.
DISTRICT CONFERENCE:  JUNE 28, 29 & 30 IN GUAYANILLA, COSTA BAHIA HOTEL. There are only 30 rooms available with special rates for those that sign up early. Tito and I already registered and am looking forward to a weekend full of Rotarian spirit, good friends and a rested hotel stay. The cost of registration for all activities is $490 per couple, and the special room rate is $179.82 per night. 
PAUL HARRIS FOUNDATION GALA:  FEBRUARY 24 in the Rio Piedras Rotary Club. Who is going? Please write me a text and let me know. Hope to see you there.
CLEANING OF BEACH:  The Rotaract Club of the University of Puerto Rico is having an activity to clean Las Mareas Beach in Guayama on February 25. If any of you are interested, you can contact Raymond Morales, the assistant to the Governor, 787-646-6366 or write to
