On May 1, 250 people gathered at the Montgomery County Community College to enjoy delicious food, delightful music and conversation. In addition to the many important friendships which were established or renewed, the generosity of our sponsors and attendees added $27,000 to strengthen ACLAMO programs in support of the Latino community. Thank you!
