Pella will have a historic visitor on Friday. Drake Law School will be hosting Maritza McCormack, an Agricultural Law Professor from the University of Havana in Cuba. This visit is the first time a Cuban Law Professor has been allowed to visit the US since the Federal Embargo began in 1962. McCormack will visit Two Rivers Cooperative in Pella on Friday to learn about how Co-ops are organized and financed. Tracy Gathman, General Manager of Two Rivers Co-op, says that they will also take her on a tour of a local farm.
