Description

The Women’s Forum of Litchfield presents a program entitled “Cuban Memories” at the Litchfield Community Center on October 4 at 2:30pm. Abdo Ballester knows Cuba firsthand, having been both born there and growing up in the glory days of the country. He will share his memories and talk about what it was like returning as an adult and how it has changed. Ballester makes Washington, Connecticut his home, where he is a trustee of the Washington Art Association. He is the star of the town’s Summer Solstice celebration with his famous Mojitos. He is also a member of the board of trustees of the Cuban Artist Fund in New York City and is a representative to the United Nations for the Foundation for the establishment of an International Criminal Court.  He is the retail manager for The Mayflower Grace Inn and Spa in Washington, Connecticut.

 

The event will be open to non-Forum members with a $10 fee at the door, which includes a High Tea reception. The contacts for more information are 860-567-3966 and womensforumoflitchfield.org.
