A larger than ever crowd flooded into the Menlo Park Senior Center
last week to enjoy two days of festivities planned for Cinco De Mayo. On May 4, the folkloric students entertained the crowd with their colorful outfits and dances, while over 80 people enjoyed a traditional home cooked meal with their friends. May 5 drew in a sold-out crowd of 135, who not only came to enjoy the delicious meal and the festive atmosphere of the Center, but to dance to the live 8-piece Mariachi band’s toe-tapping music. The event also enlisted six volunteers, who collectively donated 28 hours of their time to the program, assisting in the kitchen, helping with the decorations, greeting the guests, and helping with serving the food.
