Cinco de Mayo commemorates the date of May 5, 1862, when Mexican armies fought a decisive battle against the French in the city of Puebla. After the Mexican-American War, a new constitution and government brought democracy to Mexico. Large landowners, frightened of losing their land, invited Spain, England and France to help them maintain power. Mexico had borrowed heavily from those nations to finance the Mexican-American War; the creditors came to Mexico to collect their debts. Spain and England soon withdrew, but the French sensed an opportunity to gain a foothold in the country and stayed.

The group, Shame to Fame, decided to use the $300 to pay for a party for the entire school.

Seniors spun and twirled to the sounds of mariachi music that reverberated through the Adult Recreation Center Thursday for an early Cinco de Mayo celebration. Wall-to-wall decorations in the red, white and green of the Mexican flag created the illusion of being south of the border while plates of Mexican food were passed around. "This is a wonderful event for a lot of people and a nice way for people to meet one another," said Terry Ballmann, who helped out at the event. The holiday — which will be celebrated Saturday — marks the victory of the Mexican militia over the French occupational army at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, and is a big celebration for many in the United States and Mexico.
