Andy Stermer returns to Minnesota from Uruguay music exchange

We were delighted to learn that Andy Stermer has returned to Minnesota after an extended stay in Uruguay, where he was learning the candombe music style and sharing his talents with counterpart musicians there. Andy plans to present (and we hope perform) his trip at our annual meeting next December, and we may even see him sooner at Fiesta Days activities in Montevideo, Minn. in mid June (mark your calendars!).

Carolina Fernandez Visits Minnesota on Partners Travel Grant

Carolina Fernandez, an equine therapy specialist from Montevideo, Uruguay, is in Minnesota this month to exchange best practices in the field with practitioners across the state.  Last weekend Carolina visited Montevideo, Minnesota, where she toured Lee Mar Ranch, a highly regarded equine therapy facility. Hosted by Minnesota-Uruguay Chapter members Patrick Moore and Sue von Bank, Carolina also got to try her hand at making maple syrup, which is in high season now in Minnesota. Temperatures rose into the 60s (about 16 centigrade) on Sunday for the first time in the area since last October, one meteorologist reported.
