Caesar Chavez Day: Fun and Educational

cesar chavez day speaker2Honoring the civil rights activist, Caesar Chavez, the Safford Library and the David M Player Center for the Arts held a Caesar Chavez Celebration. It was a blustery afternoon at the Center, but it was warm and exciting inside the theater as the dancers and singers readied for their numbers.
Ray Polanco was the guest speaker. There were several musical numbers. The Moreno Sisters sang the song “The Climb.” The EAC Danseries performed two historical dances of the Mexican Revolution, “Jesusita en Chihuahua,” and “Corrido.”banda2

There was a grito contest, door prizes, and clips from Caesar Chavez’s life. Although many may not have heard of Caesar Chavez, he is an individual who greatly influenced America as we know it. The celebration was fun for all, and we hope that it will be held again next year.
