Dia de los Muertos is NOT Mexican Halloween
Show Notes

Summary:
Many people believe the Dia de los Muertos holiday is simply a Halloween celebration with Latin flare. It is, however, a holiday and celebration in its own right. Dia de los Muertos is a multi-day holiday when family and friends gather to pay respects and to remember family and friends who have died. Today's guest, Evelyn D'Agostino, shares her memories of this holiday.

Episode Notes:
Evelyn is Founder& Treasurer of Grupo Cultural Latinos En Rochester. She was born in Panama in the town of Arraiján and arrived in Western New York in 2006. Evelyn is a proud mother of two children, wife, and is often seen as a mentor to others. Her dedication to the organizations she serves has not only inspired her audience but has managed to help create an awareness of the Latin America folklore while integrating the culture and diversity of others.
