MUSIC REMEMBERED

 

 

September 11, 2001

Saturday, September 15-16, 2001 should have been a time of joy, but it became a time of solemn remembrance and unity.  "FREEDOM LIVES" -- "VIVA LA LIBERTAD" were the new themes, and red-white-blue appeared even more frequently than the traditional red-white-green of Mexican Independence Day.  For an entire year, festivities had been planned to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Latin American Social Club, 1951 to 2001:  the folkloric dances, annual Mexican parade, and fiesta dance that followed upon fundraisers, like the annual banquet, "Don's Party," and "Queen's Dance."

"Show Latino" DJs Miguel and Olga Torres designed t-shirts showing lights of the World Trade Center glowing in Miguel's hometown of New York City.  Along with members of the Fiesta Committee and Latin American Social Club, they organized a memorial service at the town's outdoor Civic Center where Sterling residents of all colors and ethnicities gathered.
