Our Inaugural Event!

On Sunday, March 27, 2022 The Grupo Latino de Piedmont launched with over 75 community members joining in Piedmont Park for a potluck and socializing.  There were foods from Spain to the Caribbean to all corners of Latin America.  We ate, we spoke Spanglish, we swayed to the music and we laughed.  See you at the next one.

Dia de los Muertos Ofrenda

In late October 2022, members of the Piedmont community led by Piedmont resident and Havens parent Raquel Navarro built a beautiful ofrenda to honor the departed.  The display included information about the holiday and symbolism as well as a craft project for students to create their own papel picado.
