    is having its Tuesday, May 26 meeting online via Zoom
    9:30 AM

    The Heroes at Amigos El Cien

    The Covid 19 pandemic has much of the world locked up today, suffering the consequences of a shut down economy. Hundreds, if not thousands of people in the greater San Miguel de Allende Municipality are now living day to day in fear that tomorrow may not bring them any food to eat. For many more, that day is today. Out of this despair, an amazing thing happened. A new citizens group formed to take on the problem. The Rotary Club of San Miguel de Allende is pleased to welcome one of the heroes of Amigos el Cien. Please join us in welcoming Guadalupe Alvarez.

    Just one week after the orders to shut down the local economy were given, the devastating effects of the lockdown began to ripple through the community. Tourism instantly dried up, restaurants closed, the shops in Centro shut down, and many of the part time expats returned to their homes in other countries. This set up a perfect storm that left people without jobs and families without food. Guadalupe Alvarez will discuss how people from all walks of life including many from the expat community have joined forces to tackle the problem head on.

    Guadalupe Alvarez comes from a local family in San Miguel de Allende. She is the founder and creative talent behind Penzi Bodas, an internationally recognized wedding and event planning. Her company develops the talents of a one hundred percent local staff through extensive culinary, design, logistics, floral, and customer service training. When the COVID19 pandemic started, she partnered with Myrna Montes at Amigos al Cien, where they give up to 1800 food packages of basic food to the needy. Find out more about the amazing journey that takes place every day during the coronavirus crisis and learn what you can do to help.

    Plan to attend this Tuesday’s virtual meeting, May 26th, starting at 9:30 AM. Go to the Midday Rotary Club website at www.rotarysmamidday.org and sign up. You’ll receive an email with instructions on being a part of this weeks meeting.
