International Day at RSS

RSS is a multi-"national” center, where many members originated from all over the world. We celebrate our differences here at RSS!

We chose October 24th as the day for International Day because it marks the day when the UN Charter was ratified in1945. The UN was envisioned as a way to unite diverse peoples to coexist peacefully with each other on this planet, Earth. Celebrating United Nations Day on October 24th every year is in recognition of the UN's success in helping to prevent another global war since its creation seventy-four years ago.

RSS asks all members to participate in our celebration of INTERNATIONAL DAY AT RSS on October 24, 2019. There will be an international flavor to our luncheon. We will have an International Dessert Bar, and displaying cultural items from diverse cultures, presenting international songs and dances, and a global fashion show where members will wear their own or “adopted” native costumes.

COME ONE, COME ALL !!! LET US CELEBRATE !!!

Born and raised in Paris, Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) studied in many of the Paris ateliers of the 1930’s, and with Ferdinand Leger who told her that her “sensibility leaned toward the three dimensional.” Her marriage in 1938 brought her to New York City where she raised three sons and was active in the art scene throughout her life. In 1982, “Louise Bourgeois: A Retrospective” opened at MoMA. It was the first retrospective given to a woman by the museum. Presented by art scholar Susan Landgraf
