    Why Cuba Matters to Iowa

    Waveland Hall

    Plymouth Church’s  5-year-old Cuba Partnership Team (CPT) takes its biggest step forward yet in providing background and current information on U.S. relations with Cuba, with an afternoon forum on Sunday, Oct. 7, entitled “Why Cuba matters to Iowa.”  The program will be a feature of Plymouth’s observation of World Communion Sunday.

    Guests include:

    Keynote speaker Rev. Stan Dotson, a Cuba scholar, pastor, musician, tour guide and exceptional  storyteller

    Craig Hill, President, Iowa Farm Bureau Federation

    Dave Miller, Director of Research & Commodity Services, Farm Bureau

    Jay Byers, CEO, Greater Des Moines Partnership

    The Sunday afternoon forum, which will be held in Waveland Hall, will begin with a Cuban lunch, catered by Ceviche restaurant from the East Village, at 12:30 p.m. The cost is $10 per person and reservations should be made with the church office. The program, which is free, begins at 1:20 p.m. At 3:15 p.m., the day’s speakers will join together for a panel discussion. The group will conduct a Q&A session with the audience, and follow-up conversations are welcome afterward.
