Independence Day celebration planned Sept. 5
The American-Latino Club invites all shareholders to its “Mexico’s Independence Day” celebration at noon on Sept. 5, in Clubhouse 4.
The club will serve tamales, salad and desserts with a non-alcoholic Mexican drink. There will also be a small show.
People are invited to dress up in native costumes from their own countries.

Mexico gained its independence from Spain on Sept. 16, 1810, not on May 5 as many in the U.S. believe.
Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican’s army victory over French forces at the battle of Puebla Mexico on May 5, 1862.
The purpose of the American-Latino Club is to learn about the different cultures and backgrounds of the people in LW. Members meet with diverse ethnic groups and exchange customs, dances, songs and music, especially those from Latin America and the Caribbean.
