Why learn about Cuba?
Cuba is a captivating country and a subject of great interest for anyone who is willing to learn
more about this unique country. The art, music, sports, history, beauty and kind nature of the Cuban people are
just a few of the reasons to learn about Cuba.
So, whether you are a Cuba aficionado, casual observer or have always desired to learn more about
this island that Christopher Columbus called "the most beautiful place that my eyes have ever seen", you should
attend our first annual Learn about Cuba seminar.
It will be held at the newly opened Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth on Cape Cod on
Saturday September 27, 2008.
The Agenda features a full day of presentations regarding US

of Havana, a presentation and exhibition of Cuban art, a film about Cuban baseball, a presentation on Cuba with
