Cultural Awareness Committee

During our most recent Cultural Awareness Committee meeting, we explored Puebla, Mexico, learning about its history, traditions, legends, and most importantly, its food. Maria Paz, Community Organizer for CCERP not only presented but also prepared delicious “Mole Poblano” (a sauce made from more than twelve ingredients, including chocolate and many spices) served over chicken and brought popular sweet potato candies. Additionally, we learned how important religion is for the people of Puebla and, at the same time, how colonialism destroyed many of the Aztec temples. Those who came parted with a “recuerdo” (small parting gift to remember the event). Special thanks goes out to Bruce Boardman, CEO, and the programs who joined us, Bimini, River Community and Omni Center!
