Club Helps Sponsor The Day of the Dead Festival

For the past 4 years the club has sponsored The Day of the Dead (Dias de las Muertes). This event was a celebration of our beloved ancestors.  Members brought photos of those who had gone before and other mementos to adorn our alter at this great event.
