Southborough – On Jan. 12, the Algonquin Regional High School (ARHS) Spanish club held a Fiesta at the Southborough Senior Center. The community service project, led by teacher Norma Bauer-Lostaunau, brought the flavor of Spanish-speaking countries to Southborough.
Donning sombreros, students sang songs from different Spanish speaking countries: “En mi Viejo San Juan” from Puerto Rico; “La parranda de Panama,” from Panama; “Cielito Lindo,” from Mexico;, “y se LLama Peru,” from Peru and “Guantanamera,” from Cuba.
In addition to a sing-along, the seniors enjoyed some Spanish-themed refreshments and a piñata.
The ARHS Spanish Club participates in a variety of community service projects throughout the year.
“As one of our outreach projects,” said Ryan Walsh, a senior at the school, “we tutor elementary school students in Northborough in Spanish. We do this for a six-week session and it is really fun.”
