President José M. (Pepito) Rivero-Olmedo-Message
            This week we are celebrating the Rotary week and our club was well represented at the Plaza Las Américas exhibit sponsored by our D-7000.  We were the first to gather along with members from the e-Club PR & Las Américas and Prof. Luis Nieves, her wife FR Marilú and their youngest son (from Río Piedras) to promote Rotary and to show that Rotary Has Heart.  Special appreciation for the attendance is extended to our own FR Jerry Cumpiano and FR Bob Bolte.  We had three fellowship hours that gave us the opportunity to know each other better and to spread the word about Rotary. 
 
Regards,
Pepito

ON A MISSION TO RECRUIT PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS
 
For enrollment in the Anglo-American University in Prague, the Czech Republic, was EMILY BOMERSBACK, Admissions Director.  Offering 17 undergraduate and graduate programs entirely in English, all of which are accredited by the U.S. Department of Education, with students automatically considered for academic merit scholarships, Director Bomersback can be contacted at: Emily.bomersback@aauni.edu.
WE ALSO HEARD FROM MICHAEL FERNANDEZ of CARAS
The organization that serves to improve the quality of life in poor communities by supporting development in Catano and North Guaynabo, where more than 1,500 families live in poverty, mostly headed by single mothers and/or grandmothers.  CARAS and community volunteers have identified education as a key strategy for improving the standards in the neighborhoods served.  CARAS coordinates after-school programs, college access programs and leadership development programs for children and adolescents.  Puerto Rico's first turnaround charter school will be launched by CARAS in August 2019.  The existing secondary school, in the area, is ranked amongst the worst 20 schools in Puerto Rico and significantly impedes students and their communities potential for human development.  For more information, contact CARAS at 939-319-5749.and info@caraspr.org
