Club Staff and Members join Karen in celebration of her quinceañera.

On Saturday, May 11th, Club Staff attended the quinceañera of longtime Club Member Karen Gallardo. Karen has been a Member at the Anacortes Boys & Girls Club since she was six years old. A quinceañera is the celebration of a girl’s 15th birthday in Latin America. The quinceañera marks the transition in a girl’s life from childhood to womanhood. Club Staff were able to celebrate Karen’s quinceañera and participate in its traditions, like the passing of the doll and the changing of the shoe.  Club Staff were honored to share such an important event with Karen and other Club Teens.
