Celebrating 50 Years of Partnerships

That was the theme of the Kansas Paraguay Partners Annual Meeting held in Manhattan Kansas on March 8. We aren’t actually 50 years old but we are helping celebrate the Partners of the Americas anniversary.  We actually date to 1968 which makes us 46.  In addition to celebrating POA’s 50th we featured the collaboration that helped create the program of Human Ecology at the National University in Paraguay (see pervious post).

Here are some pictures from our meeting. I did not catch the name of the Paraguayan student who sang so beautifully.  If anyone can tell me, I will edit this and add her name.  She deserves it.
