Posolada Membership Luncheon

Our little chapter has been down for the COVID count, but we did manage to squeeze in a Posolada Membership Luncheon for our local DLI members. It was held at Madison Elementary here in Madera. We had a great turn out! Teachers and staff were treated to two types of posole and desserts donated by our Leadership Team. 

Our VP David Hernandez did a beautiful job of decorating the room to greet and thank our DLI Teachers and their resident student teachers

We are also planning a Valentine's Day Secret Cupid for February for our members. Shhhh...Starbucks gift cards!

Las Posada Celebration, Woodland, CA

On December 11, 2021 CABE Yolo/Woodland Chapter 76 participated in Las Posadas Celebration in Woodland sponsored by the Taller de Nuevo Amanecer (TANA) which is a local cultural center in partnership between the Chicana/o Studies Department at the University of CA, Davis and the greater Woodland community. CABE Chapter 76 provided information about our activities, membership information and also was able to distribute many free books in Spanish and English to the families who attended the celebration.
High SchoolScholarship Fundraisers and Activities

Each year Chapter 76 provides at least two scholarships to graduating seniors in the
Woodland Joint Unified School District who are pursuing a teaching profession. During the year we conduct fundraisers and ask for donations at dinners, community and school events. Because of the restrictions from COVID we have not had a dinner fundraiser, however, we have successfully sold face masks, coronas for Día de Muertos, bookmarks, Otomi inspired fabric journal covers and Valentine crafts. Please check our Facebook page for more details
