Education : Conga Blues (Friday, August 1st, 2008)
Posted by admin on 2008/7/30 12:00:00 (1956 reads)

"Conga Blues" - book signing and photography exhibit featuring Victor Velez, poet, photographer and musician. Friday, August 1, from  6 - 9 pm. Refreshments will be served.
In Victor's own words:  "Conga Blues," is a collection of poetry that explores the search for cultural, personal and social identity.  Migrating to the United States and growing up in New York City, I often questioned my cultural identity as a Latino.  I struggled to find my own personal identity, my purpose in life.  My social identity was intertwined with the social uproars of the late 60's and the early 70's.  "Conga Blues," is a collection of this search.  
Come early and stay late, at 9 pm we will put on the music and start dancing. Bring your dance shoes, we will help you get started! Our Duveneck Rueda Team, featuring "Conga Blues" cover illustrator, Tony Pabon, will do a demonstration of this unique and exciting Cuban dance.

Events : 2007 SHPE Annual Picnic (July 19)
Posted by admin on 2008/7/22 10:30:00 (1453 reads)


On Saturday, July 19, the Southwest Ohio Chapter of SHPE (Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers) held its 3nd Annual Picnic, which was a total success.

Members, families, and friends had an opportunity to come together and get to know each other. Children enjoyed breaking up a Piñata full of sweets and candies, and for adults we had a Domino Tournament and a Cornhole Tournament.

We also had visitors from SHPE Student chapters from UD and OSU.


More pictures from the SHPE picnic are in Dayton section of our Photo Gallery.

The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) was founded in Los Angeles, California, in 1974 by a group of engineers employed by the city of Los Angeles. Their objective was to form a national organization of professional engineers to serve as role models in the Hispanic community.

The concept of Networking was the key basis for the organization. SHPE quickly established two student chapters to begin the network that would grow to encompass the nation as well as reach countries outside the United States. Today, SHPE enjoys a strong but independent network of professional and student chapters throughout the nation.

Education : Vacaciones Utiles @ Su Casa
Posted by admin on 2008/7/20 18:00:00 (2121 reads)

Vacaciones Utiles means “A Productive Vacation”.

This summer program aims to advance students to the next school grade they will start in September. The target population is Hispanic children ages 3 to 7 who will go to pre-school, kindergarten or first/second grade in the fall. Su Casa is implementing this summer program because many Hispanic families are not sending their 3 or 4 year old children to pre-school due to diverse factors: they do not know location, inability to communicate with teachers, lack of transportation, false assumptions about pre-school, etc. Then, children start kindergarten at a disadvantage and most of them do not catch up throughout the first years of their elementary education.

Su Casa will provide a 10-week program with strong emphasis in developing pre-learning skills for children in pre-school and kindergarten along with a strong emphasis in math and language for first and second graders. Classes will run Monday thru Friday. Breakfast and lunch will be provided by Whole Again International as well as the enrichment part of the program. This is going to be a fun and exciting summer for our children.

Every Monday Mad Frog is the hottest Salsa place in Cincinnati, thanks to Tropicoso.

And each Monday, Mad Frog has its basement open - with the best in Reggaeton, Hip-hop, and world rhythms. It's like having two clubs in one: live Salsa/Merenge upstairs with Tropicoso, and eclectic beats downstairs!
