Sumner Hispanic Alliance emerges

Autumn Fiesta planned for September 29

To better reach the Hispanic community in Sumner County, a group is being formed called the Sumner Hispanic Alliance. It is envisioned as a group of business owners, civic leaders and educators working to promote Hispanic events and activities in Sumner County.

According to one source, "Volunteer State Community College has been working for the last two years to foster new relationships with the Hispanic community. The Hispanic Outreach Group is designed to respond to the educational needs of Hispanics of all ages. As part of this effort Volunteer State is organizing 'Fiesta de OtoƱo en Vol State'. The Autumn Fiesta will be an event for the entire community, featuring music, food, a soccer contest, and games for kids. It will be held on September 29th from 11am until 3pm. We would like to get Hispanic groups and businesses in Sumner County involved in the event."

An initial meeting was held July 24. For more information please call 230-3398 for Spanish or 230-3570 for English.
