The Edinburg Housing Authority under the direction of Mrs. Estella L. Trevino had its Annual Senior Citizens Awards Night on June 3 at the Oscar Diaz Gymnasium at Albores Courts in Edinburg.

The event was to honor all senior citizens.

During the event, Eugenio and Guadalupe Cepeda were awarded the “Senior of the Year” award. This couple has lived at Albores Courts and now Viviendas Manuel Ramirez, two of five public housing developments.

The Cepedas are very kind and active in community activities and are always available to help their neighbors.

Robert de la Garza was awarded the Community Citizen of the Year award. Mr. De la Garza has been very supportive to the Edinburg Housing Authority and its residents.

Elderly residents from Albores Courts, El Jardin, Towers and Viviendas M. Ramirez were present. Rio Home Care, Cantu’s Pharmacy and the Edinburg Housing Authority sponsored the refreshments. Other local agencies and officials donated door prizes as well.

The theme this year was Hawaiian luau; all the guests had a blast. Residents dressed up to the theme and participated in a contest for the best dressed.
