A successful Cinco

Dear Editor:El Club Rotario Roaring Fork extends a warm sense of gratitude to all the individuals and organizations involved in the third Cinco de Mayo Festival, “Batalla de Puebla,” celebrated Saturday, May 7, in Carbondale at Sopris Park. It was a cool and rainy day, but the spirits were warm and friendly among the crowd, vendors and stage participants. The event was co-sponsored by the Town of Carbondale, Alpine Bank and Radio Tricolor. Part of the proceeds will be used to support educational projects, spearheaded by Club Rotario, throughout the area. A special acknowledgment to Aide Arana, Abraham Baeza, Diana Sanchez and Adela Jimènez, for helping plan the event. The festivities became a reality with the aid of a few dedicated volunteers, among them Lalo and Cesar, recent settlers from the Mexico City, Haidith Ramìrez L., Julian Hardaker, Robin Herrera and Jorge Muñoz. Also providing assistance were Eduardo, Alexandro and Allen Sanchez, Diana’s sons. Finally, we are most indebted to Anibal Guevara Stone, for his invaluable expertise with the electrical wiring. Muchìsimas gracias, amigos!Luis PolarClub Rotario Roaring Fork
