What better way to celebrate Honduran Independence Day than with a parade full of our beautiful children marching down the streets of Emmanuel. September 15th commemorates Central American independence from Spanish rule. This year we celebrated Independence Day twice. First, we held our own parade with most of the primary school and high school children. They practiced consistently beginning in August to make sure everything went perfectly. Starting at the Dental Clinic, they slowly made their way down to the front office- dancing, marching and waving the whole way down. We are so proud of every single one of our children who participated, from the youngest to the soon-to-be graduates.
Second, our marching band and a group of our choreographed dancers were invited to join the other local primary and high schools in the Guaimaca Parade. They represented Emmanuel well and they made a big impact on those watching them. Everyone was talking about how well they did afterwards. We are so proud!!
