Our grannies for the Tercera Edad were dressed in their best for the Revolution Day parade on 20 November. Leading them, holding the Mexican flag, was Director Cirino. Followed by the grannies, everyone concentrated on walking along the cobbled streets. The delightful Queen and her two princesses rode in the back of the truck as regally if it was a state carriage.
Then time for a rest before putting on the good clothes again and attending at the TE facility. As they’d been in the sun and the heat for nearly 2 hours that morning we couldn’t expect them to cook, so Amigos treated them to a rich chicken pozole, with additional servings of pork and beans, pulled pork, lentils, rich potato salad, etc …provided by our members, thank you all, and thank you for helping to serve it!
And of course – cake! Two huge ones! Thank you Mary Carmen and Dick ! Kudos to Marilyn for organising it all, which is in addition to helping the ladies with their crafts which will be available for sale at the BSP Christmas Boutique on 14 December. All help welcome on Thursday afternoons at the facility, don’t worry about the language!
