Dear Fellow Rotarians,
This is my second to last weekly message.
I have been an unusual Rotary Year.
I hope that you are reasonably satisfied with the work done by the Board this year in which, from time to time, have been unprecedented circumstances.
Tuesday June 22, I will recap the year and recognize the members who contributed to our effort with their time and other resources.
The meeting will be In Person only at the AFDA club.
Please try to join us.
All the Best,
Frank
 
 
Rotarians from all island clubs are flying banners urging and thanking people in Puerto Rico, for their good and the good of others, to get the Covid-19 Vaccine.  San Juan Rotary's banner is located at 1469 Wilson Street, in the Condado, across the street from SuperMax.  Board members and Past Presidents Gerry Cumpiano and José "Pepito" Rivero-Olmedo P.D.G., are pictured with the very colorful banner.  
Vice President, JAMES KENNEDY-PHF, recognized the following Rotarians whose Recognition Level increased their Paul Harris Fund:  HECTOR GAITAN-PHF+2; GERALD CUMPIANO-PHF+1; FRANKLIN EARLE-PHF+7.  Congratulations to all three!
Dear fellow Rotarians,
The Rotary Club of San Juan has the honor of hosting Resident Commissioner Rep. Jenniffer Gonzalez as our Speaker on October 13, 2020. We “ring the bell” at 12:30 PM and introduce the Speaker at 12:45PM.
Her presentation will be focused on Economic Development and Healthcare. Given the importance of these issues and our Speaker’s unquestionable expertise to address them, the club has made the decision to open the meeting to all District 7000 Rotarians who would like to join us. Our meetings are held in English and for the time being, totally virtual. All those who want to join us please use the ZOOM link provided in this email
Cordially,
Franklin Earle,
President      
 
CONGRATULATIONS to JOSE "PEPITO" RIVERO OLMEDO, who was honored by District 7000 for his outstanding efforts as Editor of San Juan Rotary's e-Garita. The weekly newsletter delivers the Rotary message and our Club activities to members and island fellow Rotarians.  
 
 
In her presentation Attorney Calero she cover macro events from 2000 to the present, including investment, consumption, employment and unemployment tendencies. The challenges we face in these time, as well as the delays in recuperation funds will also be covered.   But I think most of us will be most interested in Covid 19 impact, and the executive orders and their impact on consumer patterns, and their short term impact.
 
 
May 4, 2020.  Delivering 1,000 N/95 masks to Dr. Pablo Rodríguez Medical Director Trauma Center Centro Medico de Puerto Rico and Dr. Graciela Rivera, Intern Ob/Gyn Central Médico.  This is the only trauma center in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean! Daphne Bechara and Vilma Vélez from Fundacion Bechara.  Special thanks to Georgie Hildebrand and the Rotary Club of San Juan for their amazing contribution and support👍👏💪
 
 
Our first meeting was held yesterday on zoom. The presentation by Dr Steve Waterman and Dr Francisco Alvarado Ramy was informative and interesting. The relationship between The San Juan Rotary Club and the CDC, and the Health Department has been long and strong.
PAST PRESIDENTS from Rotary Years 1967-68 to the present, were well represented as they escorted the new President for his swearing-in ceremony.

It is with a heavy heart that I inform you of the passing of my father and Fellow  Rotarian, Fred von Hillebrandt, on November 27, 2020 at the age of 91. He was also the  Father-in-law and Grandfather of the Rotarians of our Mayaguez Rotary Club, Gerardo Andrade and Carlos Andrade, respectively.
 
Attached are some pictures from the last District and Club activities I believe he attended,
 
Sincerely,

TROY W. FIELDS, RIP
 
Yesterday we learned the sad news of the passing of our CR Troy W. Fields.
We met Troy within the Rotary movement of Puerto Rico as a member of the Rotary Club of San Juan.
All of us who were able to share with Troy through the years are witnesses of his good humor, frank friendship, desire to serve others, and his special commitment to young people.
On behalf of Marilyn and myself, we extend our condolences to Anabel and her family, to all the members of Rotary Club San Juan, and to the entire great Rotary family in Puerto Rico.
Troy, we're going to miss you. May you enjoy eternal Peace in the company of our Lord.
