About us, membership

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, as all meetings are conducted in English.

Do you have SaddleBrooke friends and neighbors who are interested in joining our club? Suggest that they come as a guest to the next meeting. They can get in touch with Susan Durchslag, our membership chair, at [email protected] for details. Calendar year membership is $20 per person. For new members joining this fall, membership will be extended through December 2022.

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