A word from the president...
It is a great privilege for me to serve once again as board president to the Aurora Puerto Rican Cultural Council term 2012-2014.
APRCC’s mission is to encourage and promote Puerto Rican heritage through cultural and civic activities —a mission, which through activities we hope to sharpen our cultural perspective, and give increased focus to who we are and what we stand for as a community.
Our goal is to instill and remind our youth and community of the importance of legacy and the powerful lessons of our heritage. There is a proverb that says, “When eating fruit, remember who planted the tree. When drinking clear water, remember who dug the well.” Let us remain true to the authenticity of our mission. As a community, let’s be dynamic and forward thinking, not only distinctive but distinguished, not only excellent but extraordinary.
I am thankful to God and to the Aurora Puerto Rican community for placing their faith in the promise of my leadership. Thank you and may God bless you.
