League Members Discuss Cuba—Re-Scheduled From January
Lonely Planet calls Cuba “a prince in a poor man’s coat… If the country were a book, it would be James Joyce's Ulysses; layered, hard to grasp, serially misunderstood, but – above all – a classic.”
Wilton LWV member Barbara Quincy and Norwalk residents Stuart and Galen Wells participated in a mid-November cultural exchange trip to Cuba, under the auspices of the People to People Educational Exchanges authorized by President Obama in 2011. Their tour returned home right before the U.S. re-established diplomatic relations with Cuba.
Join us at the Wilton LWV’s monthly Steering Committee meeting for an informal discussion about their trip—Wednesday, April 29, 2015, at 7 pm at the Senior Lounge, Comstock Center, 180 School Rd. Our meeting begins with a brief business meeting, followed by our guests’ discussion. All League members, friends, and the public are invited. Guest speaker Barbara Quincy is also the president of Stay at Home Wilton. Questions? Contact Carole Young-Kleinfeld at for information.
