After years of fundraising and planning, construction and setting up equipment, Border Partners is ready to invite the public to come to the new Education Center of Pto. Palomas! We hope you will join us for a Celebration and Dedication of the Center on Saturday, October 18!
This Center was made possible by the hard work of many dedicated individuals, groups and foundations! It is the realization of a dream for many people who live in Pto. Palomas and will stand as a true monument to international friendship and committment. We are confident that it will serve, for years to come, as a place where people of all ages can come to learn, to advance their education, acquire skills and to communicate with family and friends.
Activities of the day
The event will include an official opening of the Center at 1:30 pm, tours and demonstrations of the Center’s technology equipment, music and refreshments! In addition, the Palomas Promotoras will hold a Health Fair. Visitors can also view demonstrations of other Border Partners’ projects and tour our large demonstration garden on site.
The Center is located two blocks south of the Pemex gas station [located south on the main street of Palomas] and four blocks west. It is adjacent to the Public Library.
We’re providing free Rides between the Education Center & The Pink Store for this event. Rides will leave The Pink Store every hour at 12:30, 1:30, 2:30, 3:30 and 4:30 and leave the Education Center on the hour from 2-5 PM.
