Latino Expo 2018 Sets New Participation Standard
The 18th Latino Expo was held August 4 at Edmonds Community College. It set new records for vendor and informational booths, and attendance surpassed all previous years.

Karat Mercedes Garcia of radio El Rey 1360 AM, opened the program along with Miss Washington Latina Edith Gonzales, and Miss Washington Teen Latina Janice Jimenez.

One lucky participant won a drawing for a 50-inch, flat-screen TV receiver in the "Early Bird Raffle."

LETI Founder and CEO Rosario Reyes introduced dignitaries including Dr. Amit Singh, President of Edmonds Community College, Shannon Sessions, Lynnwood City Council Member, and Vanesa Gutierrez, Community Relations Manager for Snohomish County.

A series of four workshops on occupational safety and health, sponsored by the Washington Dept. of Labor and Industries, began at 12:30 pm and continued through the afternoon.

Musical and cultural presentations were offered by Mexican folkloric group Guelaguetza, Mariachi International Mi Tierra,and David Lara with regional Mexican music.

A Children’s Regional Dress Contest was noteworthy by the difficulty of selecting a winner by audience acclamation, as all were happily and loudly received. A youth talent show drew a dozen young singers and musicians.

Former Edmonds Community College President Dr. Jean Hernandez presented a workshop on "Running Start" program, which prepares high school students who typically are the first generation of their family to seek a college education.

Various raffles continued through the afternoon, culminating in the award of a group of bicycles to a luck family.

67 vendors and approximately 800 friends of LETI attended the event. We tip our hats to Radio 1360 and Univisión for excellent coverage and publicity before and during the event.

Image shows dancers on stage and a set of bikes that were raffled at the end or the Expo to a family with very broad smiles as they rode off.
