President Kenneth McGrath Message
This coming Thursday we will be hosting, for the 30th year, a Thanksgiving lunch to be held at La Concha Hotel for the members of the Boy's and Girl's clubs of Puerto Rico.  The cost of the lunch was funded through the generosity of our members and a special donation sent to us by the Centerville, Ohio Rotary Club.  The boys and girls will start arriving at around 10:00am and lunch will be served at 11:30am.  Our Rotary members will serve lunch to the youths as has been the practice for the past 30 years.  I encourage you to spend a few hours on Thursday morning to come and help with this activity.  In spite of the hardship that everyone is facing in the aftermath of the hurricane, we all have a lot to be thankful for, and it has been our tradition to share this particular morning with the neediest in our community.. 
Commonwealth-Parkville School's Interact faculty advisor, Alexander Cerqueira, introduced students Sofia Torres and Diego Medina who brought us up-to-date on the many activities covered by their Interact Club, including Heart for Haiti, fundraising Flea Market, working with our Chili and Sancocho event, and RYLA (Rotary's young leadership organization).It is always refreshing to be visited by these enthusiastic young people.
Water Filters Donation-Asociación Pro Bienestar de la Familia Comerieña

The Rotary Club of Manhattan Beach, CA, donated three water filters and Honda generators to Puerto Rico hurricane relief efforts through our club in San Juan. The water filters will be donated to three different communities in need. The first will be deliver to the town of Comerio on Thursday. Many thanks to the Manhattan Club and our contact persons, Bob Lanahan and James Kennedy, International Service Co- Directors. Soon there will be pictures to show of the delivery and of those being benefited with the donation. 

Our speaker was John Richardson, Club Past President, Past Rotary District Governor and President of Merchant Banking Advisors, Inc..  Offshore banking was his topic and we certainly gleaned much information from John's fact-filled talk.  Many learned, for the first time, that Puerto Rico is an off shore tax haven with $58 billion invested which attracts the Law 20/22 investors.  Banks are involved from all over the world.  Needless to say, the U.S. has strict regulations to follow.
