S&P Around the World

moderated by our lifelong member, Joshua Mendes

Monday, August 13, 7:00PM

How much do you really know about our "sister" S&P communities around the world?

Jamaica, Philadelphia, Montreal, Paris, and other wonderful communities, near and far, share in our rich, historical tradition.

Learn about them and hear first-hand accounts directly from friends who grew up in these communities, who will tell us about their unique histories and traditions as well as our shared ties going back hundreds of years.

Moderated by our lifelong member, Joshua Mendes.
