Estimados amigos,

Como espero sea de su conocimiento, el 170 aniversario de la Independencia de la República Dominicana es el próximo Jueves 27 de febrero 2014. Una vez más UNIDOM izará la bandera dominicana en la ciudad de White Plains en conmemoración del acto Cívico más relevancia para los dominicanos.

Con esto en mente, nos gustaría extender una invitación personal, no sólo de la organización UNIDOM, sino de toda la comunidad dominicana del condado de Westchester para que nos acompañen en este evento tan especial. El izamiento de la bandera se llevará a cabo el Domingo 2 de marzo del 2014 a las 2:00 pm en el Renaissance Plaza, 200 Main St. White Plains, NY 10601. Despues de la conmemoración estaremos reuniéndonos en The Lazy Lounge, ubicado en 152 Mamaroneck Ave. White Plains, NY 10601 para compartir un bufé de aperitivos y refrescos de 4:00-7:00 pm.

Esperamos verlos en esta actividad donde nos uniremos como una sola comunidad estrechando nuestros lazos amistosos y apoyándonos mutuamente. Si usted tiene alguna pregunta, sugerencia o inquietud no dude en ponerse en contacto con nosotros a través de correo electrónico

Despite the adverse weather conditions, the 9th White Plains Hispanic Parade and Festival
showed its best performance last Sunday, October 18th.
Once again, Dominicans projected their best image, thereby enhancing the name and culture of
the Dominican Republic with folkloric groups who marched in typical custom along
Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains. This dynamic city wore its best colors and danced the
sticky rhythm of “Merengue”, which inadvertently moved the dozens of attendees. UNIDOM
brought Live-music and a beautiful carnaval float, which made it the main attraction of the event.
The excellent participation of UNIDOM has again been praised by members of the Board Parade Committee and the local authorities during the last years.

Out of the 21 participating countries, the Dominican Republic showed the largest flag in the
parade and in a bowing gesture in front of the standing review by City Hall where Hon. Mayor
Delfino together with other Parade Honorees were applauding its participation. Mr. Delfino, in a
fraternal gesture embraced Mr. Leonardo Espinal, President of UNIDOM, and expressed his
immense respect and admiration for the Dominican community of White Plains.

Mr. Espinal said to the Media who covered the event: "I am happy and pleased with the
participation and support given to UNIDOM; many of us proudly feel our “Dominicanidad” and
show our best image of Latinos abroad”
"The White Plains Hispanic Day Parade and Festival is the most important event for Hispanics in Westchester County. It is our purpose, to unify the Dominican community and Latinos in
general; and UNIDOM had taken significant steps towards achieving it on such short period of
time”. “Among our achievements, we had for the first time, “The Hoisting of the Dominican Flag” an unprecedented civic act (never done by another Hispanic country in the city of White Plains), on last February 27, 2009. We’d also had for 2 consecutive years, our famous Softball
Tournaments. Also on June 2008, UNIDOM offered its full cooperation and support to the
Dominican Consulate in New York City, through the recognition of meritorious students of
White Plains High School”. "And we’d had other no less significant communitiy activities
where we manifest our singularity”.
