• Mark your calendars for November 2, 2024! The U-46 Foundation is partnering up with the Gail Borden Public Library foundation to present a major celebration of Mexican culture. The day will start with El Trote De Las Calacas (the Skeleton Trot), a certified 5K race that will take place on the streets and paths near the main library. There will be so much more to follow, all in honor of the Day of the Dead, with a festival, ofrenda, music, and more. Early Bird registration for the 5K is open now, so be sure to check it out!
