Parkville-San Juan Puerto Rico Global Grant, GG2094899, Culture of Peace in New Generations is COMPLETE!
Our Global Grant has been submitted for final approval after authorization by two San Juan PR Rotarians, President Kathy Leibrand, and Dalyn Novak, Grants Chair. We are waiting to hear back from RI for the final acceptance.  

This grant was supposed to be a one year grant that was started mid-2019 but due to the Covid pandemic the work stretched out over multiple years. 
Rotary International Conference 
Melbourne, Australia! 
Dear 6040 Rotarians
A few months ago, I had the pleasure of attending my first Rotary International Convention in Houston.
It was amazing!
Meeting Rotarians from other part of our country and the world and listening to them share their Rotary experience was one of the most profound things I have encountered in my Rotary journey.
Not only did I make new friends and get reacquainted with Rotarians from the Philippines whom I have not seen since my GSE trip back in 2001, but I was able to bring ideas back to our district and share those ideas with Rotarians with specific project priorities. Projects addressing human trafficking, Alzheimer's therapies and better community engagement are now being implemented in our district thanks to International Convention.
Next year's convention is in late May in Melbourne Australia. The prospect of traveling that far for a week or so may sound daunting but it is totally worth it! You have no appreciation of the power of Rotary until you attend one of these events.
I am inviting you to join my wife and I at the Convention.
If you register before December 15th, you get $100 off your registration fee.

I hope to see you there!
Yours in Rotary Service
