Dear fellow Rotarians,    

 I hope you had a wonderful holiday time and I wish you a great 2022. 

Our Board has decided, due to the present circumstances, to only have virtual meetings during the rest of January and February. We will let you know when we start having presential meetings again. 

There are two important issues that I want to discuss with you, and I would like to get your reaction and advice in relation to the same.

The first relates to our main reason of existence: doing good. Part of which is helping those in need. The District is accepting Applications for District Grants. This is a great opportunity to fund small projects with immediate needs. If you have a project you would like to do, please fill out the Application ( and submit it to Georgie Hildebrand at The Application will be reviewed by the Board and the top Applications submitted to the District for Approval. You will be receiving the guidelines for the Grants and the Application soon by email. Both are in Spanish but feel free to call me or Georgie Hildebrand at 831-345-5299 if you need help with translations. The maximum amount of the Grants $1000.00. 

The second relates to our involvement with the people we are helping. It is not only giving money, but we must also give ourselves. Please let us know if you are interested in getting involved and we will be more than happy to invite you to visit some of the projects in which we are participating. No doubt they need money, but even more they need people that understand what they are doing and people who can share with them the joy of helping our people.

I will continue to contact as many members as I can but please feel free to call me, send me a message or an email with your comments. My phone is 787-649-9426 and my email is

My very best to you all, and may God Bless,     


Last Week
Attorney Jorge R. Gonzalez, told us what Rotary's Peace Academy all is about:   "Peace" covers the individual, family, community, nation, and world. The Institute for Economics and Peace, originated in Australia, and has offices in major cities worldwide. Rotary has formed a partnership with the Institute that capitalizes on IEP's research on the principal factors prevalent in the more peaceful societies and Rotary's grassroots experience serving communities around the globe    
To promote and permit peace is the goal with a wide range of actions to be taken.  We will be hearing further from our Past President Jorge on this critical project as it is one of the most important challenges we face in Puerto Rico. To actively support this project with concrete actions would be an important step each of us can take as San Juan Rotarians.
