With the purpose of integrating and organizing the Ecuadorian community, the group called ECUA Reading was created. The creators are Luis Vera, Rosa Elvira Cardenas (husband and wife) and Marjorie Dejesus. The group has its Facebook page with more than 600 members and has been motivating the integration of the Ecuadorian community since 2019.
This year, on the occasion of Ecuador’s Independence Day, the “Ecuadorian Coexistence” was coordinated with the cooperation of volunteers. In this unforgettable celebration they shared typical Ecuadorian dishes, sports, music, native dances, traditional games and dancing. We can’t forget to mention, the traditional “mad cow”! It should also be noted that the activities created by Ecua Reading are free to everyone.
It was an incredible experience for all the families that attended; the participation of the children in the folkloric dances received deserved applause, as well as the masterful presentation of the Ayazamana and Guarmis dance groups that made a great outpouring of quality and artistic color to the delight of the attending community. Participation and cooperation exceeded expectations. More than 450 people could have attended.
Now more than ever the Ecua Reading group will continue on this path of integration, where the Ecuadorian community continues to offer their best for the development and progress of the City of Reading that has opened its doors to them and that is now their home.
