Liberal Cinco deMayo Community Celebration Canceled for 2016
KSCB News - May 6, 2016 11:19 am
Each year, for the last 13 years, the Cinco de Mayo Committee has planned and presented a Cinco de Mayo celebration for the citizens of Liberal. Unfortunately, we will not be having a celebration this year due to a series of unforeseen circumstances. The goal is to provide our community with a meaningful community celebration; however, due to schedule conflicts and personal family emergencies, we have not had the ample time necessary to plan and execute an event to the caliber that our community deserves.
Over the past 13 years, we have awarded more than $67,000 in scholarships to local students. We intend to continue with our scholarship program again this year. On March 29, the Cinco de Mayo committee awarded 18 Liberal High School students scholarships amounting to $5,400.
We are currently in the planning stages for our 2017 Cinco de Mayo community celebration. We are looking for volunteers to serve on our committee. If anyone in the community would like to help with the 2017 Cinco de Mayo community celebration, please call the chamber office at 624-3855.
The mission of the Cinco de Mayo committee is to unite, educate and enlighten our community in the rich cultural diversity that exists in the Liberal community through cultural events, scholarships and educational projects.
We hope you’ll join us for our 2017 Cinco de Mayo community celebration.We’ll be back bigger and stronger than ever before.
