Festive Fundraising At Jaltepec Centro Educativo
Jaltepec Centro Educativo held its annual Christmas Dinner and Luncheon November 29th and 30th 2016 and we thank all of the attendees for making this outstanding event a sold out celebration. We would also like to recognize Timothy G. Ruff Welch and the “Taste” of the Los Cantantes del Lago Choir for their special contribution to this festive occasion.
Funds raised continue to help make Jaltepec, a school which grants a Technical Degree in Hoteleria to young Mexican women, a success. Sadly, the death of the Instructor Dolores de la Torre in the tragic accident in September was a great loss, and her gift with floral design was missed at this year’s Christmas at Jaltepec.
This year was a recreation of the Candlelight Dinner with memories of the lack of electrical power in December 2014 which galvanized the staff and students into a quick thinking solution! Candles appeared from all corners of the school, the turkeys and food were cooked in the demonstration classroom with gas stoves, and despite being unable to have the Los Cantantes Concert, everyone enjoyed themselves. There were special requests for a Candlelight Dinner again this year in the newly renovated Dining Room which turned out very well and will become a regular event in the future!
