No experience necessary!!

Day of the Dead Celebration Saturday, November 2nd at Central Park in downtown Henderson from 4:00 – 7:00 PM –

Background:  Montessori is joining efforts with the city of Henderson to host this community (free) cultural event.  The Mexican holiday Day of the Dead is a celebration of loved ones who have passed.

Events include:  Mexican dancers, craft activities for children (sugar skull decorating, face painting, tin crafting, tortilla making, flower tissue and papel picado making, etc.) and ends with a parade!

This is a wonderful event to be a role model for community service with/for our children and help celebrate the cultural diversity in our  community.  Information will be coming home closer to the date, but mark your calendars!  There will be something for everyone from  crafts, workshops, music, food vendors, etc.

Day of the Dead Volunteers:   We will need up to 60 volunteers on the day of the celebration.  We’ve included a link to show where we’ll need help on Saturday, November 2nd.       https://montessori.ivolunteer.com/dod2019
