Central America, with a focus on Guatemala, was the theme of the Dec. 1 luncheon meeting in New York at the El Quijote Restaurant, reports Area Coordinator Lynn Simmons. The speaker was Lloyd Lapidow. In addition, the 45 TCC members present enjoyed an impromptu performance by a group of students, ages 14 to 18, from Puerto Rico, who were celebrating at the restaurant.
