The pandemic kept everyone from getting together last year, so people say it was a nice change. “The main thing I love about it is the fact that it brings me out of the house, living alone, no visitors stuff like that. Like I said before, comradery. I love the fellowship with all of my friends here,” said Maria Catalina Garcia who attended the event.

The center hired the local band, David & Company to kick off festivities.
