Celebrate America at the community center tonight

Join us tonight for our Celebrate America Picnic Extravaganza at the Ross Aragon Community Center.

The celebration is free and the program runs from 6-8:30 p.m.

Our Israeli folk dancers and the line dancers will demonstrate dances, but you are welcome to join them on the dance floor after a small tutorial. The Pagosa (Zimbabwean) Marimba Ensemble and Paul and Carla Roberts (multicultural roots music) will provide music for us to dance to. So, be sure to bring your dancing shoes. The DJ will lead us in a sing-along, with some of our favorite patriotic songs.

Bring the family and picnic food. There will be free punch, cake and 50-cent hot dogs, while they last.

This is a celebration for the entire family!
