We are deeply honored to have been selected to help the Museum kick off its 3rd Annual Dia de Los Muertos celebration with a special screening of Michoacán to Michigan! The showing here in Saginaw has special significance as Saginaw is where Martina and Valeriano first came to Michigan from Mexico.
Sunday, November 6
Thanks to the efforts of our cousins Laura Solís Chávez and José Mendoza Lara we are privileged to be screening Michoacán to Michigan at this prestigious institution as part of the University’s Fiesta del Libro y la Rosa Michoacán! In addition, we will also be presenting Uncle Dan’s narrative Michoacán to Michigan “An Immigrant’s Journey”. It is especially significant and meaningful that we will be showing Martina and Valeriano’s story in the Estado de Michoacán. We will be part of a panel to discuss the film, our family’s story and have a Q & A with the audience.

Flushing High School Spanish Club
We had a very nice turnout at Flushing HS for the 1st annual Hispanic/Latino Heritage celebration for the Flushing community. Besides giving us the opportunity to present our film Michoacán to Michigan, Spanish teachers Susan Stockton and Annie Macbeth put together a very nice, comprehensive program about the significance of the contributions of the Hispanic/Latino community. A special highlight (by coincidence due to Susan’s connection with (El Ballet Folklórico Estudiantil & Mariachi) our own family members, Cadence and Callum Dolan (Courtney & Tim’s children, Mike & Cathy’s grandchildren) and the great great grandchildren of Martina and Valeriano performed! So fitting as Flushing is close to Saginaw and the other areas where our family started the Michigan part of their story. Muchas gracias to all who worked to make this special event happen!
