Graduation Photos on Plaza Grande

11 July 2008 was an important day in Pátzcuaro. The trio of plazas in the center of town were buzzing with more activity than usual. Men and boys in suits and ties and women and girls dressed in their best clothes decorated the streets. Restaurants and hotels were full. Special celebrations were held at the Basílica, watched over by Nuestra Señora de la Salud, patron of health and of Pátzcuaro. Commemorative photos were taken on the Plaza Grande.
It was graduation day for CONALEP, the Colegio Nacional de Educación Profesional Técnica. Founded in 1978 by presidential decree, the school provides technical education and training to students of high school age.
Congratulations to the Class of 2008.
