Announcements – Fri., May 5

May 5, 2023

Good morning! Today is Friday May 5th which marks P day in our Z to A countdown to the end of the year. Monday is R day, Wear red or a rainbow. Today is also Cinco De Mayo marks Mexico’s against-all-odds victory against invading French troops in 1862. However, most of us wrongly assume it’s Mexico’s Independence Day or Día de la Independencia which occurred on Sept. 16, 1810, when the country broke free of Spanish rule. Cinco de Mayo came more than 50 years later when French Emperor Napoleon III wanted to claim Mexico for himself.
