President Antonio (Tito) Colorado Message

Dear fellow Rotarians,   

  One of our goals this year is to interrelate better with other Rotary Clubs in the Caribbean, in Central America and in the US Mainland. This is much easier now that most of our meetings are virtual. It will help us to understand better our region and we can find common grounds thru which we may be able to get to know better, and be of help to, our neighbors. Please let me know if you have any personal contacts in the region that could help us in our endeavors.  

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,   


Welcome New Member

Inducted into San Juan Rotary on Tuesday was, DELIA COLORADO, Registrar of the Property for the Puerto Rico Department of Justice.  Mrs. Colorado was sponsored by her husband, our President Antonio Colorado.  

INAUGURATES this Thursday 9/16 at 6 pm his new radio program Reflections on Allegro 91.3 FM in which he will discuss diverse topics with our well-being and that of our community in mind.  The program will be repeated on Friday at 8 am.  It can also be heard on the internet via various sites.  JORGE asks for your feedback on the program since he knows he needs to adapt (because of SJ Rotarian feedback the program is on Thursdays instead of Fridays as originally planned).
JORGE'S email is:

Rotarians met at the AFDA Club to hear Club Treasurer, LUIS RAMIREZ, give a detailed report on the expenses and income, the budget, and the financial condition of the Club.  At present, we have 80 members.  The goal of 90 members is important for financial health. Rotarians were strongly encouraged to bring a new member into San Juan Rotary.  LUIS then fielded questions from the floor. Treasurer LUIS was followed by President TITO who again urged members to get involved in Club activities such as the upcoming Annual Thanksgiving Event for the Boys & Girls Clubs.
