El Puente de Celina
is dedicated to celebrating culture and serving as a resource that promotes community development and educational achievement. Through the Cinco de Mayo Festival our main fundraiser. We honor and celebrate a segment of our diverse Latino cultures and create a community project that brings people of diverse backgrounds together, culminating in a festive event that features food, music, and performances unique to Mexican culture. Goals include 1. A widening of our community circle and increased appreciation, understanding and respect for our diverse citizens, and 2. A college scholarship fund that helps the winners of the Cinco de Mayo essay contest attend college

History

El Puente de Celina was officially launched in March of 2012. Dago Rodriguez, a long time citizen, had a vision of wanting to share the Mexican culture with the community in 2010. Celina celebrated their first Cinco de Mayo festival with close to 2000 people attending. This event brought a diverse group of the community together not only to celebrate but in organizing the event. Each year more and more citizens and businesses supported Cinco de Mayo. As a committee we envisioned an organization bridging the cultures in our community. Not only through Cinco de Mayo but also in offering other opportunities to bridge the cultures. Thus, El Puente de Celina meaning "The bridge of Celina" was formed. The board will look for additional opportunities to bridge our cultures
