The first 2005 Sunnyside Cinco de Mayo Committee meeting will be held Tuesday, Feb. 15, at noon at El Mejor Tequito, 544 South Sixth St.
Anyone who would like to help co-chairs Lino Guerra and Brezzi Campos organize this year's celebration, set for May 5-8, is encouraged to attend.
"We'd appreciate suggestions as well as help to make our festival, often called the largest one in the State, another success," said Rhoda Giffen, a spokesperson for the Chamber-sponsored committee.
"The Chamber office is already receiving calls almost daily from vendors wanting to participate," said Giffen.
"We'll be sending out vendor application forms next week," she added.
Last year's Cinco de Mayo celebration boasted nearly 100 vendors.
People wishing to volunteer or offer suggestions for the event may call Guerra at 391-0355.
