El Centro Holds Voter Education Rally Posted August 4, 2016 by Irene


Approximately 50 people attended our Voter Education Rally and Picnic in KCK’s Bethany Park last Friday night.  Attendees got the opportunity to meet candidates for local, state and federal offices and enjoyed refreshments provided by area businesses and organizations.  Children’s activities included face painting, a moonwalk and a pinata.

Additionally, several speakers addressed the audience and shared the importance of getting out the vote. We believe that voting is part of our civic responsibility and is an effective way to make our voices heard. Another voter rally will be held in the fall and our canvassers will be going door to door again in advance of the November General Election.

Special thanks to Rio Bravo Market, Tapatio Mexican Grill, Paleteria Tropicana, El Padrino and Rockhurst Student Ministries for providing food, concessions, refreshments and the children’s activities.
