June’s International Dinner (Nashville)

For June’s international dinner, we went to the Guatemalan Restaurant in East Nashville. The food was excellent, with papusas and whole fried fish among other tasty offerings. It was a bitter-sweet event as we said goodbye to board member Jay Fisher, who is moving to Philadelphia. Come join us for the next one!

April Happenings

During April, TNRPCV Nashville volunteered at the Music City Marathon. Some of us also met for our monthly international dinner at Salsa for some delicious Puerto Rican food and salsa dancing. At the beginning of the month, we had a great time at our second annual international wine tasting. We hope to see you at one of our future events!
