Spanish Culture Club news

Word for the day: Fiesta de bienvenida (Welcome back party!)

We hope you will join us at our first meeting of the season on Monday, Oct. 21, at 5:30 p.m. in the SaddleBrooke One activity center. We’ll be having a wine and cheese party to welcome back current members and to especially welcome new and prospective members.

The club will provide wine, fruit, and dessert. Please bring a Spanish-themed wine or other beverage of your choice.

We are a culture club, not a language club, interested in all aspects of Latin American and Spanish culture, including art, music, and customs. Speaking Spanish is not required; however, if you’re interested in improving your Spanish, there are opportunities to do that as well.

Spanish-speaking lunches are on the first Monday of the month at noon at the Mesquite Grill. Audrey Tarchine ([email protected]) is the coordinator for these lunches. Please let Audrey know by the prior Friday if you are planning to attend so that she can make arrangements with the Mesquite.

The club meets monthly on the third Monday of the month at the SaddleBrooke One activity center. We generally have a potluck dinner followed by our program. Our meetings are conducted in English. Come as a guest and try us out!

November sneak preview: Our regular monthly meeting will be held Monday, Nov. 18 and will feature Dr. Gerald Hagin. His topic will be “La Quinta: The Quest of a Young Man’s Journey to Become a Doctor in Spain.”

If you are interested in joining, have any questions, or would like to attend an event on a trial basis, please contact Kay Sullivan (president) at [email protected]; or Susan Durchslag (membership chair), at [email protected]
