Latino Heritage Month, September 15-October 15

Here's our poster for this year's event.

Things are developing at a fine clip. The meeting with the various City of Pasadena departments went off smoothly thanks in part to each of the department's representative and especially thanks to Michelle Bernal of as well the partnership that is becoming stronger with the Human Services and Recreation Department and Rozanne Adanto, Villa Parke Community Center Supervisor.

Revisions will undoubtably take place in the next month - that's sort of the nature of the event beast.

I read a quote today that seems both appropriate for the beginning of Latino Heritage Month and for our preparations for parade & jamaica. It is a quote from "Life in the Time of Cholera" by Garcia Marquez.

"Human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but [rather] life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves".

How we define ourselves, by our our roots and by our experiences, is a constantly evolving thing.

Turns out this even holds true for parades.
