10th Annual Back to School Celebration Held in Henderson Saturday

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Just a little more than a week left before summer break is over for thousands of kids. More than half of the students in Clark County schools are considered low-income. As pay cuts and layoffs continue to plague parents. Finding the money to send kids back to school is often an expense families can't afford.

Saturday a back to school celebration, held by the organization Hopelink, gave more than a thousand kids some much needed help. Throughout the year they collected countless supplies so every student is capable of success in the classroom.

"It's been a long week but now we get to see the smiles," said Marlyn Buckley, organizer.

Families may face financial crisis, but the Henderson community is in their corner. With two kids on a single income, Carla Richardson's certainly felt a crunch, and now its time for her five-year-old daughter Kelissa to start class.

The parade will be at the Henderson Convention Center along Water Street from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. A dinner and community program will follow the parade for members of the organization. Friends of India started in 1985 by Indians wanting to keep a connection to their home country and culture. It has grown as the Indian population has grown in southern Nevada.

This is the first parade the group has ever held. Traditional jhanki or floats will be part of the parade and so far 40 different floats are expected. The 15th of August is the actual day of independence but the group chose August 20 to celebrate it.
