MOTHER'S DAY CELEBRATION
Mothers were celebrated and honored in style on May 10th as CBHA invited
families and the community to join together at the
Wahluke facilities – where music, food, dance and gardening activities provided an
evening filled with fun, entertainment and health education.
Children in colorful dresses made by parents and staff performed traditional
Mexican dances for their families and other event participants as part of
CBHA's WIC Program focus on healthy life styles. The children began practicing 3 months prior
to the event. All that hard work and practice showed!
Dr. Veronica Idrogo, CBHA Dentist, even joined in on the fun (see cover photo).
CBHA event organizers

kids. Everyone was having a good time enjoying the dances, the speakers,
and the ‘Gardening for Good Health’ activity!” said Mabry.
