DO NOT FORGET!!!
Por Vida pays our respects to our lost loved ones. This is what the event is ALL about. We dedicate our "wall of remembrance" to these people, pets, ideas, etc. You are asked to bring photographs and stories of and about these subjects that you can hang up to show who or what you are commemorating. Please do not bring originals if you wish to have them back, as we cannot be responsible for returning these items once our event is over. We reserve the right to remove any offensive material, so please be respectful.
We ask you to drink responsibly, and behave respectfully.
