The Pledge of Allegiance was led by San Miguel students Nelson Cruz & Neldwy Cruz.
"Today our Inspiration is reflected in this room by our guests - the students and staff of The San Miguel School who are engaged in the noble mission of attaining both high intellectual achievement and high ethical standards. We are inspired both by what you have accomplished and encouraged by thoughts of what you will accomplish in the future." – Bob Murphy
Numerous Happy Bucks by club members and guests were expressions of gratitude for the luncheon and good wishes for the students.
John Wolf, Executive Director of San Miguel, gave $20 for the many blessings the school has received from Rotary programs and volunteers.
Bob Murphy gave $ 20 for the support of the Providence Rotary Charities Foundation for this event and for the work of Walt Adamowicz and Anthony Landi - Walt for having been the original organizer of this event and Anthony for doing great work over Thanksgiving Week to make this event a success.
Eighth grader Ramasses Bido described how San Miguel had given him great confidence. When he began in 5th grade he was worried that he could not do well in the courses but with the guidance of the teachers and staff he has done well and is now confident he will do well in high school and college.
The Poetry Club of San Miguel presented a series of poems from memory - some solo and some as a group.
And finally, Santa Claus entered the room and gave Holiday greetings to all and distributed presents to the students. 

That Rotary members log a lot of volunteer hours should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with the organization. But a new report just released by Johns Hopkins University provides a powerful look at the impact of all those volunteer hours.

The special report prepared for Rotary International by the Johns Hopkins Center for Civil Society Studies found that Rotary members had volunteered a total of 5.8 million hours within a four-week survey period. Extrapolating those results over an entire year, the report gave a conservative estimate of nearly 47 million hours of volunteer effort generated by Rotary members in a typical year.

The report then analyzed the economic impact of all those hours and estimated the value conservatively at $850 million a year, if communities had to pay for the services that Rotary volunteers provide.
