LULAC #4366 Holiday Food Drive

19 Nov

food_driveYour LULAC #4366 Council is going to conduct a holiday food drive. We are looking for locations/businesses that would be willing to host a box with the LULAC name and logo on it to collect items for the food drive. Once we have a few confirmed donation spots, the Denton High School LULAC Youth Council will drop off boxes at these locations and periodically check them, and pick them all up on Wednesday, 12/17.

If you would like to host a donation box or know of a location/business that would be willing to host a donation box, please let me know so we can start setting up drop boxes. Thanks for your help and support!

Homenaje a María Parker

19 Nov

latinaFrom Dr. Isabela Piña Hinojosa:

MARIA PARKER will always be remembered as the RN who helped you out at NTSU (now UNT), as a parishioner from Immaculate Conception Catholic Church – Denton, TX who assisted diligently with faith not only when we first started the Spanish mass, but as the years went by. Maria Parker was also one of the first LULAC members for many years providing assistance for scholarships.

Maria was born March 30, 1944, and went to be with the Lord on November 12, 2014. She was a beloved daughter, sister, aunt, and wife. Maria loved and served the Lord everyday of her life.

There will be a visitation held on Saturday, November 15, 2014, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. with a Rosary to follow at 6:30 p.m. at DeBerry Funeral Directors. There will be a Mass held at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, November 17, 2014.

She is survived by her husband, Thomas Parker; sisters, Raquel Garcia, Yolanda Contreras, Amelia Bond, Margarita Reyes, Lydia Garza, and Melva Castillo; brothers, Jose Francisco Castillo, and Carlos Castillo.

Our deepest condolences to the family of Maria  Elena Parker. Te voy a extrañar Maria.

Local civil rights groups quiz candidates

18 Oct

Denton’s chapters of the NAACP and LULAC combined forces for a candidate forum Monday night in Southeast Denton.

The two civil rights groups found that they had common interests in education, health care, immigration reform and minimum wage, according to Al Sanchez, of the League of United Latin American Citizens. They invited all the party candidates for county, state and federal offices from Denton County to the event and asked each of them five questions over those shared concerns.

“What better way to lift our communities,” Sanchez said. “We still have lots to learn about these candidates.”

He told the crowd of about 50 in attendance that the groups plan to work together in the future.
