Three of Canada’s leading experts on Cuba since the Revolution will be joining us for the CIC Halifax Annual Reception and Dinner. Journalsts Keith Bolender and Stephen Kimber and Professor John Kirk will all be attending our Annual Reception and Dinner before the Panel Presentation next Thursday night at Dalhousie University.   

What we have planned is a warm-up for the Evening Panel, featuring acclaimed journalists Keith Bolender and Stephen Kimber and being held a few steps away in the Dalhousie SUB Building at 7 pm.  

Our Annual Dinner will be free for “official” CIC Halifax Members and available at cost ($20.00 per person) to all Non-Member friends of the Branch. Our cash bar will open at 5:15 pm and the dinner begins at 5:30 pm.  The Annual Election of Officers will be held with Dinner in progress and will end with a Roundtable Discussion of “Cuba Under Seige.”  

Following the Dinner, everyone is encouraged to walk over to the Panel Discussion, organized by Professor John Kirk in co-operation with three different international community organizations. 

It looks as if “CUBA NIGHT” in Halifax is going to be a real feast for true internationalists.
