Hello again. Back in July I was already getting you excited about the Corsican delegates that are coming to honor Angel Navarro.
Next week myself and several volunteers from the organization
Friends of Casa Navarro will be meeting to plan the agenda for
Jose Antonio Navarro's 223th B-day celebration in 2018. 2018 is the 300th birthday of the city of San Antonio. The city is planning a year long celebration and will be welcoming visitors from all over the world.
Casa Navarro is a partner in the 300th Celebration and is planning a spectacular day for you to enjoy. We are encouraging people of all ages to come in period dress. So, if you'd like to come dressed as any of the citizens of San Antonio from the time period 1826 - 1836, please do. It will be fun for the children even to dress up. The Casa Navarro has wonderful facilities so you can change out of your costume whenever you'd like. We will have refreshments, entertainment and speakers with the highlight being our guest from Corsica. Please come and be part of these festivities.
In prelude of the Corsican's coming next year I will be having my
third meeting of this year again at the Collins Garden Library Community Room on Thursday, October the 12th from 6:30 to 7:30. I will have more information on the Corsican visitors and we will learn family history of our ancestors from Europe. What an
exciting time. I hope you will join me as I present to you how the
Corsican's visitors will impact our celebration on the 24th of February 2018.
