Second Annual Mini Feria at the Family Support Center

As all of Guatemala began celebrating Independence Day, the children and youth at the Family Support Center celebrated with the Second Annual Independence Mini Feria!  On Friday September 13, 2013 staff, mothers, and volunteers chipped in to bring a day of fun, food, and games to Llanos del Pinal.  

Activities kicked off with various civic activities and recognition of the current group of honor roll students.  The children and youth learned about Guatemalan history, the Independence, recited the pledge, and sang the national hymn.

The Mini Feria commenced with games, food, and laughter.  The mothers prepared various snacks including enchiladas, french fries, snow cones, elotes locos (corn on the cob), fried hot dogs, and rellenitos.
