Meet! Honor! and Eat! The 2nd annual Cape Cod MOVES Dios De Los Muertos Celebration.
November 1st, Dios De Los Muertos, otherwise known as Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday that celebrates the love and respect we hold for our deceased ancestors. Last year the kick-off event brought many people together to meet, honor our ancestors, eat an amazing meal and to get ready to MOVE forward. This year we did the same. MOVES members brought photos of loved ones to place on our decorated altar and say a few words about those remembered. Chef Ira served Pozole, a traditional Mexican hominy soup, and Calabaza en Tacha (candied pumpkin) for dessert. In addition, we presented a check for $1,700 to the South Shore YMCA for camperships. Deb Bonvan presented the check to Joe O’Keefe. The money was raised from this past fall’s Y-Not Trail Race. The YMCA never turns away a child for financial reasons. Cape Cod MOVES also honored MOVER of the Year: Mary Tolland!
The night raised $200 to go as a donation to the Richard D. Bigos Fund – In memory of the former Director of CACCI. Monies from the fund go to help CACCI clients when they have exhausted all other resources. Community Action Committee of Cape Cod & Islands, Inc. CACCI is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit community based social service and advocacy organization committed to the empowerment of low-income residents throughout the Cape & Islands.
