2nd Annual Unified Puerto Rican People’s Parade to Honor 40th Anniversary of Clemente Community Academy and Borinqueneers


On Sat June 14th at 2pm, the 2nd annual Puerto Rican Peoples Parade will start on Division and Western motivated by the huge success of last years unified efforts, the organizers from Casa Puertorriqueña and the PRCC are extremely excited about this years upcoming celebration. They have decided that the parade will highlight the historic Puerto Rican Borinqueneers/ 65th Puerto Rican Infantry Regiment of the US Army- whose valor and courage is being memorialized by a major housing and health project for Latino veterans at Norwegian American Hospital, sponsored by Hispanic Housing Corporation.
The Parade will also showcase the 40th anniversary of the opening of the Roberto Clemente Community Academy. And, particularly, its new focus as an International Baccalaurate (IB) school, which will transform it into the jewel of the crown of the community’s quest for creating a culture of educational excellence. The parade organizers are inviting Clemente students to submit their artwork for a poster competition for this years parade poster, which will integrate the themes of education, the 40th anniversary of RCCA and the celebration of the community’s cultural expressions.
