Club Español

The Mission of the Spanish Club is to learn the language and appreciate the Hispanic Culture through classes, cultural events, fiestas, and travel.

Welcome

The Spanish Club, also known as Club Español, is a Chartered Social Club organized in 1980 by residents interested in sharing the enjoyment of the Spanish language and culture.  Many club members are learning Spanish for the first time.  Other members have become quite comfortable speaking Spanish. The Spanish classes and conversation groups offered by the club are a fun way to learn something new. . . and keep one’s brain active! 

In the past Club Español has had several wonderful fiestas each year. The Holiday Fiesta is held in December, the Valentine’s Fiesta in February, and our Fiesta de Primavera (Spring Fiesta ) is in April.  We continue to follow Rec Center oversight with regards to COVID in our language classes and events.  Please feel free to wear a mask as you deem necessary when attending our various functions.  Classes, activities and events will be posted on this website.
