Nominations sought for grand marshal of Cinco


Yasmina Chavez, a sophomore at Grandview High School, is pictured at work at her first place of employment, the Paper Tree and Gift Garden in Sunnyside.

The Cinco de Mayo Committee is seeking nominations for grand marshal of the parade, which will be held Sunday, May 7, on the last day of the three-day celebration.

"We have had many parade marshals in the past and the committee has been struggling with a choice for his year," said Brezzi Campos, president of the Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce, which is sponsoring the celebration under the direction of Lino Guerra.

She said they are seeking a marshal who has been a moving force in the Hispanic community either as a business owner or volunteer.

Nominations should be phoned to Campos at 830-4199 or Guerra at 391-0089. They can also be dropped off at the chamber office at 230 East Edison Avenue.

The nominations must be received by 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 26. The committee will make its decision at a meeting that evening.
