Highlights from our most recent meeting:

Trip to Venezuela: Bette Hoover may be organizing a trip to the Prout Institute in Venezuela in the summer or fall.  If interested, please contact her at bette@justpeacecircles.org. Next meeting will be at Leslie’s, 6336 Sandchain Road, Columbia 21045, 410 381-4899,

Dues:   Dues are $15 and are voluntary.

Cuba: J. B. told us about his recent trip to Cuba  at the end of January. He described visits to artists, musical events and the Martin Luther King Center. The price was $1400 for 11 days plus airfare.  It was his 4th trip to Cuba.  He reported that the remittances to the island have increased to $ 2 billion. There is still a two tier economy.  Americans have to change their money to the convertible peso.  One reason might be to keep $$ out of circulation.  There has been an increase in private enterprise.

Cuban Five: The man who was released is in Miami and wants to go back to Cuba because his brother is ill.  He’s a U.S. citizen and has requested permission from the authorities.
