Patrick Moore, a board director of Minnesota-Uruguay Partners, writes in with the following news...
"I am happy to report that the 3rd annual Montevideo Fiesta Days Asado was a success!
Thanks in large measure goes to the efforts of Asador Marcos Villanueva who did an incredible job. It was such an educational event -- just to watch him in action, conversing with everyone who came up to him, including the Queens from towns throughout the region. He not only cooked the Moonstone beef but also cooked up a mess of catfish from the river that were caught as part of the fishing contest!

Audrey Arner, Duane Ninneman, Dixie Tilden and myself were there as were Youth Ambassadors Martin Moore, Amber Sorensen and Brendan Stermer. Amber was introduced to the crowd and had the honor of drawing the winning ticket for the kayak raffle."
