Local Community Information
The Dominican American Association was founded by Maria
Perez, Juan Marquez and Lucia Gutierrez in 1993. We formed this organization to
promote the cultural and social aspects of our culture. Mainly we celebrate the
independence day, el dia de la Altagracia, mothers and fathers' day, navidad
and the festival of nations. It is a friendly a welcoming group that welcomes
anyone of dominican descendance to join us. The money we get from the Festival
we use it to help organizations that work with the poor people in our country.
Our president this year is Ramon Diaz. We are proud to be part of the festival
of nations for 14 years already.
