LCP Ruby Alferos
Rotary Club of San Jose
Rotary Serve to Change Lives!
The Pre-PETS, Summer Fellowships, Completion of the President and Secretary Courses, and PETS. Attending these via Zoom and Rotary Learning Center was an immense contribution to my knowledge as the Life-Changing President. I was asking myself, “Kaya ko kaya ito?” After exchanging ideas and thoughts with TP Hanna and other long-time members of our club, I was inspired by their encouraging words.

Internally, we will create a Council of Past Presidents to guide the new leaders, adopt the Kaibigan Ko Hila Ko to increase membership, take care of member education, improve the collection of membership dues, and organize and protect the organizational knowledge of the Club.
Externally, we have projects for each of the Seven Areas of Focus, such as “Alagang Nanay, Alagang Rotary”, “Malinis na Tubig Iwas Sakit”, and “Tulong Dunong ng Rotary Club of San Jose”.
The Rotary Club of San Jose believes that alone we can do little, but together we can make a difference. We can do more. We can save and change the lives of the people in the community.
