Puente de Amigos Committee has several trips to Cuba in the works! 

November 2018:  We have been invited to attend La Habana and Cuba Yearly Meeting (CYM) anniversary celebrations. Friends United Meeting (FUM) plans to send a delegation. The Hanover group will travel to the Oriente after visiting La Habana, but will only overlap with the FUM delegation for a couple of days. (This trip is already filled.)

January 2019: Caryl and Jeff Creswell (non-NEYM trip) will lead Faith & Play Workshops.

January 2019: Benigno Sanchez-Eppler will be at the  Cuban Quaker Peace Institute (ICCP) to teach Quaker history and archive preservation.

February 2019: This group is forming now to attend Cuba Yearly Meeting Annual Sessions. Interested? Contact co-clerks Martha McManamy (978-463-3259) and/or Maggie Fogarty (603-988-7115) to learn more.

April 2019: Wellesley service team will go to Puerto Padre. They expect to link up with a nearby New England monthly meeting to fill out the team.

  • Dover to Holguin
  • Monadnock to Gibara
