On Wednesday May 5, at 4 p.m., you are invited to join us in celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Parents, preschoolers and elementary school children are welcome to view and discuss our interesting Cinco de Mayo Holiday Facts and Fun DVD.
Cinco de Mayo has been celebrated in Mexico since 1862. It is a celebration of Mexico's victory against France in the Battle of Puebla. France had 2,000 more soldiers than Mexico, but the Mexican army had the farmers to help, and with the help of mother nature, Mexico won the battle on May 5, 1862.

This is a true story of one man’s love for a dog that had been through a lot of misery. Nubs, an Iraqi "dog of war," never had a home or a person of his own. He was the leader of a pack of wild dogs living off the land and barely surviving.
Nubs' life changed when he met Marine Major Brian Dennis. The two became friends, and Major Dennis gave Nubs the kind of care he had never had before.
