Congratulations and very happy to hear from our friends of Centro Asturiano de Tampa. Centro Asturiano de Miami is also celebrating same event, same date, and approx. same hour, as rest of Centros Asturianos worldwide do, either on Sunday 8th (the true day) or 15th, depending on their schedule. Thiis is the most important event of the year for Asturian people, and it's unbeleivable the feeling and coordination, no matter the distance or cincumstances, La Santina is our link. This day we are having a typical Asturian lunch: empanada, fabada & arroz con leche. First "misa y procesion" St. Roberto Belarmino church in Miami, then the lunch at the parish hall. Contact ph. (305) 271-2966 or centroasturmiami@bellsouth.net

Also we are having a lecture on Saturday, August 24th 5th p.m. Title: "La obra del Poeta de Asturias, Alfonso Camin" it's a cultural activity. Art, under separate cover I'm sending you copy of the invitation, is not easy for me to post it. Of course your help is very much appreciated. My best regards to you and Bob, am still thinking on the symposim in Miami and will keep you informed, please let me hear from you both. We are celebrating this year our 40th Anniversary.
