JoAnn Mackey Iowa’s Latino Heritage Festival director retires


We had a wonderful event for 2014. Thanks to God he graced us with the most perfect weather. This event as most of you know is the end of my career as Executive Director of Latino Resources. When I started this event 14 years ago I knew it would grow to be what it is today. The growth of the Latino community in Iowa has been extraordinary. And this is the reason the Festival has succeeded. Many of you have been part of its success. You have volunteered your time because you have had a sense of pride and have wanted Iowans to be enlightened of the beautiful culture and traditions this community has brought to Iowa. To the people who have helped me make this event such a success I thank you from the bottom of my heart. And to our Sponsors who have supported us all these years. I love you all!
