Wednesday from 12 - 4 p.m., Montelongo's Mexican Restaurant will host its 10th annual free end- of-the-school-year swim party to celebrate a successful school year and honor the legacy of Petrita Montelongo, a local business woman for whom Montelongo Pool at 3200 Bates (West area of Rogers Park) was dedicated.
Participating children will have the option of swimming, playing games, collecting information about summer programs, getting a firsthand look at a fire truck, picking up health information or simply enjoying their first days of their summer days while eating free hotdogs, hamburgers, ice cream and many other treats.
Last year the pool party attracted over 1,500 children to the community sponsored event. This year's event will once again be sponsored by: Montelongo's Mexican Restaurant, UMC, Amigos, Sysco West Texas, Gandy's Dairies, Coca Cola, Caprock Home Health, American State Bank, Mayfield Paper, Jake Montoya Insurance, Latino Lubbock Magazine, Glen Robertson, Mario Ybarra, the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce, the City of Lubbock and Reagor Auto Mall.
