La Unida Once (the United Eleven) had a Christmas party on December 17th, which also served as an award ceremony. In addition to serving delicious Mexican food, they passed out certificates of appreciation, coffee cups with their logo and t-shirts to the people who helped them the past year. Well, the items are not nearly as important as having the recognition from this group. They are establishing an immigrant family network in the East End, as they did in southwest Houston. Because I provided a space for them to meet at LOCCA, they wanted to show their appreciation during the ceremony. Im just happy to offer a safe and convenient location. Thanks La Unida Once and to Raul, their main organizer! I appreciate the "Appreciation".
