We are heading to Puerto Rico for a great Beet Retreat!
The island has been the setting for several of our Retreats. Why? I have a special connection with the island, having had a home on Vieques with Kathy for many years. Since 2017, I have been honored to be associated with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico. I have been inspired by the group’s innovative approach to helping the children of the Island achieve their potential.
We always raise funds for the organization and this year we are doing a charity auction at our dinner on Thursday night. We are grateful for the items contributed. I hope you will bid. If you don’t participate in the auction, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the group at this dedicated link for Beet Peeps. Special thanks to our auctioneer Dan Aversano of Univision.
We will hear more about the Club when we welcome its president Olga Ramos to the Beet Retreat stage on Wednesday afternoon.

The Humanitarian Crisis in Ukraine
As we gather in Puerto Rico, let's not forget the misery of those stuck and leaving the Ukraine. I hope you will join me in making a contribution to the International Rescue Committee or other worthy groups.
