On Friday, Sept. 4, more than 300 gathered at the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture to honor the municipality of Cayey representing el “Mejor de Nuestros Pueblos” as well as to honor the memory of Josefina Rodríguez.

The evening event included a welcome by Puerto Rican Cultural Center Executive Director, José E. López, of the Cayey delegation, which was headed by Mayor Rolando Ortiz Velázquez. Gifts were exchanged and the Mayor gave a brief but powerful message of the importance of the memorable community celebration. This was followed by an engaging and dramatic presentation by the Municipal Band which captivated the audience.

The program ended with the homage to Josefina led by the poet Carlos Quiles and the musical group from Cayey, Alambre Dulce.
