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 2019 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

For the January Culture Corner, HPRSD will celebrate its annual Three Kings Family Celebration.
