The Spanish American Club, Inc. elects new board

By Herman Santa

The members of The Spanish American Club, Inc. elected a new board for the fiscal year 2017. The annual general assembly meeting was held on January 8, 2017 at the Disabled American Veterans Club in Port St. Lucie.  The new board of directors elected are: Ruben Aleman; president, Nancy Rozon; vice president, Luis Carrillo; treasurer, Al Feliciano; secretary, Ray Guadalupe; public relations, Isa Bryson; director and Carlos Mejia; substitute.

During the annual meeting, Carlos Bonet was warmly thanked for his serving as president of the corporation from 2013 to 2016. Melissa Sanchez (substitute) was also honored for her four years of service during the same period.  The board welcomed the new members, José and Irene Mori, Colberto and Denise Bodden during the formal induction presentation.

The club was founded in 1992 as a “monthly get together club” with nine Hispanic families when there was no much events for Hispanics on the Treasure Coast. Changing to monthly dance parties at public clubs made it possible to not only grow in numbers, but to afford the members and their guests more of an opportunity to participate in other events.

Over the past twenty five years, the club has grown to more than 150 members to organized and present monthly dance parties, annual cruses and picnics, and other fundraising events such as golf, bowling and dominoes tournaments to support their scholarship program.

Next two events of the club have been scheduled for Saturday, January, 28, to celebrate the “Annual Black and White Party” at the Disabled American Veterans Club in Port St. Lucie and the “Annual Valentine Dinner Dance on Saturday, February 18 at Club Med in Port St. Lucie. Reservations are required.

For information about the January event, please contact the new president of the club, Ruben Aleman at For the February event, pls. contact Carlos Bonet at For more information about the club, please visit
