CALEXICO â€“ Dressed in beautiful eveningÂ gowns and suits, mothers and sons enjoyed a memorable night atÂ Calexico’s first annual Mother-Son Night Out at the Community Center on Saturday May 2.
Blanca Ramirez, Calexico resident who attended this banquet with her four-year old-son Fernando Ramirez said, â€œThis is the first time I have done something like this with my son. My husband and daughter attend the Father-Daughter event yearly. This year I decided to try it, and I am very happy.”
Dinner and dancing was the menu as the couples enjoyed each otherâ€™s company and created memories for aÂ lifetime.
â€œI am very pleased the City of Calexico was able to make this event happen. It has been cancelled the previous years since the turn-out was low,â€ saidÂ Socorro Ramirez, Calexico resident.
â€œI hardly get to spend time with my mom due to school, homework, and other things. I am happy to be here with her,â€Â Sebastian Ramirez, 11-year-old Calexico resident said.
â€œWe had a great turnout. We sold 78 tickets and expect more couples to attend,â€ reportedÂ Carmen Maldonado, City of Calexico Recreations Department Program Coordinator.
â€œMy brother Sebastian and I asked my mom last year, ‘when is our turn?’ When my dad and sister attended the father-daughter dance.â€ saidÂ Esteban Ramirez, 12-year old Calexico resident.
Sandra Tauler, City of Calexico Community Service Director attended the event with her grandson, Izayah Tauler.[envira-gallery id=”56656″]
