Hijos de Palmeira

Sociedade created in Newark (New Jersey) on April 1, 1929.

Society founded in Newark (New Jersey) on 1st April 1929 by migrants from this parish from Ribeira. As usual, a “sister” society was also created in Palmeira. Their aim was to help their community in Galicia and for this purpose they built a community centre of 600 square meters in their hometown. Both societies are still active nowadays (Sources: exhibition at Ribeira City Council; “La Sociedad Hijos de Palmeira cumple mañana ochenta años”).
