(Farm Worker Appreciation Week)….This year it will begin November 29th.
The special week will continue through December 5th. The Board of Supervisors declared Farm Worker Appreciation Week at their meeting this week. The highlight of the week is the Farmer Worker Appreciation Breakfast. It will be held Friday December 4th. Volunteers from around the County gather in Calexico in the wee hours of the morning to serve farm workers breakfast before they report for work. There is traditionally Mariachi music and several information booths set up during the annual event. The Appreciation Week is designed to thank the Farm Workers, considered the backbone of the Ag Industry, the largest industry in Imperial County.
