This week we were informed that the President Elect of Rotary International for this coming year is Barry Rassin, of the Rotary Club of East Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas.  He was selected by the Nominating Committee for President of Rotary International for 2018-19 to replace Sam Owori who passed away unexpectedly last month.  As you probably know our club is planning to celebrate its 100th anniversary between June and August 2018 with the date dependent on the schedule of the incoming president who we have asked to attend.

Guest speaker, Giancarlo Gonzalez, on what role "digital" will play in radically rethinking the delivery of government services to the people.  In this internet age, expectations are raised but so far, government has not responded to the technology available.  Our speaker's talk created an enthusiastic Q&A period.
 
Executive Director, Chris Low, gave an overview of the project's 21 years of serving the youth in Matenwa, Haiti. 
 
The Hacienda Guaraguao (Veteran Housing Sawmill in El Yunque) $2,080 check was presented by President Ken to Don Toler, representing John Dillon of our Palmas Del Mar Satellite Club.
 
PAST PRESIDENT, Juanita Morris, visited the Pittsburgh Rotary Club, who sponsored San Juan Rotary 100 years ago.  She invited the Club to our Centennial Celebration next year.  Both the Pittsburgh Club president and their District Governor Elect will try to come to our event.
