March 2018 Newsletter
 

Dear Members and Supporters,
 
Following on the heels of our well-attended talk on modernizing Brazilian infrastructure, hosted jointly with the World Bank retirees club, we had two events in March:
  1. The Peruvian happy hour at Inka where 20 people showed up to watch the waves, chat with friends, and enjoy food, drinks and music;
  2. A visit to Jardim Botânico to see the International Sculpture Biennale, where 22 lucky guests were treated to insightful explanations of the sculptures by our in-house artist guide, Peter Palashevsky. Thanks Peter! It was a special treat for about half the attendees, who had never visited Jardim Botânico before.
We have several activities on hand for April:
  1. On April 3, Yvonne Bezerra de Mello, founder of the internationally acclaimed Projecto Ueré, will speak on: “Teaching to the Brain”.
  2. On April 7, Barbara Iseli will take us on a walk through Centro and help us understand and appreciate modernism and brutalism in architecture.
  3. On April 15, Caren Addis Botelho will lead a hike at Cachoeira dos Macacos.
  4. On April 19, we’ll be holding a happy hour in Barra.
Mark your calendars for other upcoming AmSoc events:

May 10: Yacht Club Happy Hour in Urca (reservation priority to members)
May 22: Lunch at Arab restaurant in Copacabana
May 26: Pancake Breakfast at OLM
June 10: Pakistani Lunch in Flamengo (reservation priority to members)
 
Planning for America’s Day is underway. To make it more interesting, we’re planning to hold a ribs cook-off. Details for each event will be distributed by flyer and put up on the website. Renew your membership or join now to ensure that you can manage to go to all events.
 
Finally, please save the date for the evening of Saturday, May 5, and join American Consul General Jimmy Story and his wife Susan for a night of delicious food and amazing music, all while helping underserved young artists reach their dreams of attending the prestigious summer arts program at CalArts in Valencia, California.  
 
See you soon at one of our upcoming events or at a Board meeting!
