Current Events and Happenings on Rota

May 2017

Purple Button Friday May 5 - Cinco de Mayo (literally means 5th of May) - It is a celebration of the Mexican Army's victory over France during the Franco-    Mexican War. The battle was fought at Puebla and is considered a minor holiday inside Mexico. In the U.S. however, Cinco de Mayo not only    celebrates the victory at the Battle of Puebla, but a celebration of the culture and heritage of the Mexican people. So much for the history    lesson, this day is a day to eat Mexican food and drink Margaritas.
