Quotes

...“I like to do these kinds of festivals once a year,” she said, adding that Sunday’s event felt emptier than past years. "This place used to be packed,” she said. “The young crowd doesn’t go for this anymore.” Sunday afternoon, people gathered outside to watch children from the club perform folklore in Portuguese. “We have to keep the tradition and get kids involved,” said Melo. The club holds Portuguese classes, wine tastings and music events to bring people together but the major gatherings of the year are the Lady of Fatima Feast, Carnaval in the spring and the Holy Ghost Feast in the summer. “People get to go back home for a day,” said Melo. Anamika Roy can be reached at 508-626-3957 or aroy@wickedlocal.com. Follow her on Twitter @anamikaroy."
According to Jonet, poverty in Portugal reaches 20% of the population and we need to combat the "incessantly apathy and indifference” of people and of institutions."
