At the meeting of the University-Ballard Lions Club on November 2nd Lion Bill Southern introduced Miguel Velasquez, Consul General A.H. of Peru and Fernando Jaureyui, assistant to the Consulate of Peru. They presented a video that showed an overview of their beautiful country and shared the country’s history, culture and geography which has 24 regions (like our states). It became clear that Peru is a country with a history that shows a great fusion of cultures over the years. This excellent presentation helped the University-Ballard Lions to a better appreciation of the shared values that we have with the people of Peru.
Shown below is a photograph Counsel General Velasquez, who has lived in Seattle for many years and Lion Patty Minzel who was celebrating her 90th birthday on November 2nd.
