In these very stressful times it is so important for families and friends to get together. On Sunday at the Calexico Rockwood Plaza from noon to 6 p.m. there will be food and music to enjoy and relax. It will be a time to share love and caring for each other. The Neighborhood House has undertaken the whole event and the music will be volunteered by Javier Magallanes. I look forward to this very special Family Day “Dia de la Familia” so I’ll be seeing you out there — take chairs — we are short of benches.

On Saturday Jan. 20, over 350 children enjoyed a fantastic day fishing in the sunshine at two of Imperial Valley?s best lakes, Sunbeam and Weist. About the same amount of adults accompanied these kids for a great family day out doors. The El Centro Kiwanis Club would like to thank the Imperial County Fish and Game Commission for making this day possible. Without the commission?s support, our fishing derby would not be possible. Others who contributed to this event included the California Department of Fish and Game, the Imperial County park rangers, and Wal-Mart.
