For as long as I can remember, celebrating my heritage has always been important. Growing up, it was essential that I knew where we came from and the significance of our culture.
Today, it is no different, and I am proud to be a part of something that continues celebrating and honoring the long-held traditions of the past. Here we keep our heritage alive, along with a goal of educating the next generation so they can feel proud of where they come from too.
And while it takes a lot of hard work, it's easier because we are all a community, an extended family of close friends who share a common goal: to keep the past alive by celebrating it into the future.
I hope you have the opportunity to come celebrate with us, now and for years to come.
