Cultural club learns about Latinx and Hispanic culture

Oct 17, 2021

To celebrate Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month, the Old Rochester Regional cultural club attended the Brazilian Grille in Dartmouth.

The group learned the differences between Hispanic and Latinx cultures and heard from guest speaker Ibby Bobola. She spoke of her journey moving to the United States from El Salvador.

"Her story brought tears to my eyes, it was empowering," said club founder Eddie Gonet.

Everyone toasted to a great year ahead for the cultural club, which won the most sign-ups of OR clubs at last week's "ORR Club Hub."

A recording of Bobola’s speech by ORCTV will be released next week.
