Cinco De Mayo celebration in Graeagle

The Mohawk Community Resource Center will present its fourth annual celebration of Cinco de Mayo at the Graeagle Fire Hall on Sunday, May 5.

Doors open at 5 p.m. and a buffet style meal will be served at 6 p.m. The cost is $25 per person with tickets available only at MCRC, at the corner of highways 89 and 70 in Blairsden.

The main meal is again being catered by the Ricochet Cafe’ in Clio. Last year’s patrons praised the food as exceptional and it should be no different in 2019.

The menu will include chips and salsa, green salad, coconut milk black beans and pulled pork verde. This year, MCRC has received the support of Total Wine & More to offer a no host bar serving margaritas, beer and wine. There will also be a 50/50 drawing held during the evening.

This celebration is a very popular local event, always sold out, so attendees should get their tickets as soon as possible. Revenue from the Cinco de Mayo celebration is a major source of the funds necessary to keep the doors open at the Resource Center.

MCRC is a service of Plumas Rural Services, and serves to enrich the lives of the residents and visitors of the surrounding communities in a friendly atmosphere. A variety of activities take place at the center daily.
