President María de los Angeles Rivera Message
Dear Rotarians:
Thank you to all that participated on this week’s meeting. We had a great presentation by Laura Cantero from Grupo Guayacán and I am sure great collaboration is on the works. One of our 7 areas of focus is economic development of our communities. Learning about the entrepreneurial environment in Puerto Rico is key for us to engage. Remember to check our calendar of speakers so you do not miss our 4 entrepreneurs, graduated from Guayacán, who will be sharing with us their challenges and goals. I am certain that we can serve as sounding boards and mentors to some of them.
As I mentioned in the meeting:
  1. Silent Auction will be probably at AFDA on September 8 at 6:00PM. An online auction is being set up so you can start reviewing the items and bidding pretty soon.
  2. We are looking for volunteers to work in the Youth Avenue. So please contact me if you are interested and:
    1. Do you have experience with any youth organization? Such as Boy Scouts or the likes.
    2. Did you receive youth services / youth protection training.
  3. Like us in Facebook and ask to join our group in LinkedIn. Look for Rotary Club of San Juan
  4. We are working on the upgrade to our sound system so we can hold hybrid meetings. Please bear with us a little more!
  5. The District’s Chinchorreo at Dorado’s Parque Agroturístico from 10am on August 14, 2023.
The Board of Directors and I are counting with all your support and commitment to achieve our goals and take our club into the future. We are still looking for volunteers to join our five committees. Please let me know which one you would like to join. If you have any concerns or issues, please bring them to my attention along with your ideas and recommendations.
My phone number is 787-525-4544 and my email is Call me to share your concerns and ideas to make the best of our Club.
My best to all,
SAN JUAN ROTARY is saddened to learn of the passing of Ms. Manuela Neves Duarte Da Silveira, wife of our member and Honorary Consul of Portugal, Jose C. Duarte Da Silveira,
