Culture Corner:
Sharing The Puerto Rican Experience

Puerto Rican Flag
In our monthly membership meetings, a member of HPRSD or a visiting guest is invited to share their experiences with the Puerto Rican culture and history. This seminar series has been denoted as our Culture Corner. Tomás Perry, one of the original founders of the House of Puerto Rico, and Jaime Chavez initiated the series.

The 2017 Culture Corner is hosted at our Casita in Balboa Park (San Diego, CA) after the monthly HPRSD membership meeting at 3PM (1st Saturday). Open to all!

This Month's Culture Corner

As members, this is where you place your stamp on the organization's near- and long-term future. Consider serving in one of the open position. Support the candidate that best represents the leadership skills HPRSD needs to stay on course.

Whatever your inclination, HPRSD is an organization where each member has an equally valued vote. USE IT!!
