Penya Barcelonista WDC – Special call “final de Liga”

Posted on Updated on

Dear all,

Just one more won game left and we will be LA LIGA champions again (SUNDAY 16th, 1PM, ELEFANT&CASTLE – 19th and I St.). Two in a row! But, as master Guardiola warned us, there still is a lot of work to do against Valladolid. And the Penya members will be at E&C to support once more our team.

As it is our last 2009-2010 season’s meeting, the Penya’s board has prepared an special event for all of you consisting in:

1) Special lunch – 40 Catalan / Spanish traditional food servings with pà amb tomàquet, croquetes de pollaste, queso manchego, and tortilla de patatas. First come, first served from 12.30 pm / 22$ (CASH) per serving (taxes and tip included).

2) Estrella DAMM available!!! Limited # of beers.

3) T-shirts delivery / sale – for those who have reserved "District of Culémbia" T-shirts, we will be selling them at the E & C from 12:00-1:00pm on Sunday May 16th. Please bring $20 cash or check.

If you are unable to attend the match and wish to make alternate payment/pick-up arrangements, please e-mail Aaron (aaron.plantenberg). Unclaimed shirts will be sold on Sunday. Depending on demand, we may place another order over the summer.

Additionally, if you would like a shirt but didn’t reserve one, we’ll have a few extras on hand. First come, first served.

3) Music (surprise) and more.

We hope to SEE YOU ALL THERE!!!

SAVE THE DATE: Dinar amb el Delegat del Govern de la Generalitat a Nord-Amèrica – Dijous 27 de maig


Fa uns mesos la Generalitat de Catalunya va obrir una oficina de representació a Nova York, al capdavant de la qual hi ha el seu delegat, Sr. Andrew Davis. A finals de maig té prevista una visita a Washington, DC per motius de feina, i li hem proposat de dinar amb el grup de catalans i catalanes que treballem a les institucions multilaterals. Apunteu-vos la data i l’hora. Estem acabant de tancar un preu amb un restaurant cèntric i pròxim per tothom

Missatge de la Fundació Paulí Bellet – Sant Jordi

Posted on Updated on


DIUMENGE, 25 d’ABRIL, 2010, d’11 del mati a 4 de la tarda.


Visiteu: http://www.dayofthebook.com/

Per a les comunitats catalanes de la zona metropolitana de Washington aquest es un acte cultural especial perque celebrarem el Patro de Catalunya. Es una bona oportunitat per visitar la Biblioteca Catalana (patrocinada per la Fundacio Pauli Bellet), i conmemorar les obres universals de Miguel de Cervantes i William Shakespeare.

Hi haura mes de 80 autors i autores, poetes, artistes, i moltes activitats per a la canalla,

incloint el concurs de dibuix organitzat per la Fundacio Healthy Children-Healthy Oceans

(Infancia Sana-Oceans Saludables), amb premis per als dibuixos de les nenes i els nens seleccionats.

Per a les families, es un dia molt bonic de celebrar junts.

Per a la resta, Kensington es un dels barris mes pintorescos de Maryland.

El part metereologic no es gaire prometedor, pero altres anys el dia ha millorat molt a mesura

que surt el sol solet. Porteu-vos un jersey i moltes ganes de passar-ho be.

Fins a Diumenge!
