4th of July

If it’s the Fourth of July in Sonoma, it’s time for a parade and La Luz is ready!  Named the eighth best 4th of July celebration in the country by Travel+Leisure Magazine, Sonoma’s 4th of July Celebration is a tradition that honors our independence and brings together thousands of people from our community and beyond.
 
The theme of the 2017 parade, “Honoring Our Local Heroes”, featured over 60 entries in seven different categories.  The La Luz entry of “We Are All Immigrants” won first prize in the Nonprofit category, as well as tremendous applause from the crowds.  
 
Our float was decorated with grapevines, representing the “roots” of the community, and balloons of red, white, and blue.  Riding on the float and representing various heritages were local dignitaries including Louann Carlomagno, Sal Chavez, Manuel Merjil, Dean Ezaki, David Fazio, Ligia Booker, Sheila Whitney, Kanak Raj, Francoise Hodges, and Nima Sherpa.  Walking alongside were more than 50 members of the La Luz community, staff and board of directors, all wearing T-shirts customized with the slogan “We Are All Immigrants”
