Editor’s Letter

AlmaSeptember is absolutely one of the most important months of the year. Our Mexican flag waves in each and every one of the states, cities and towns of our beautiful country of Mexico during our “Fiestas Patrias”

For Mexicans living in the U.S, it is a month full of pride, culture, music and over all, full of tradition, the same tradition we like to share with all of you next September 12, when for the first time in Tucson’s History, The Celebration of Mexican Independence Day, will be held in Downtown Tucson!

The traditional “Grito de Independencia”, will be represented by Tucson’s consul, Ricardo Pineda. Important community leaders will also be present during this celebration.

We will also have the presence of local and international artists performing on stage such as International known Sonoran Tenor, Omar Contreras honoring us with our National Mexican anthem during civic celebration. Winner of “Operación Triunfo” in Mexico, Darina, will delight us with her beautiful songs on stage.
Let’s all enjoy a great family evening in our Beautiful Downtown Tucson.

Your opinion is extremely valuable to us. We greatly appreciate your loyalty and the opportunity to keep us in business for 12 consecutive years.

Your Friend,
