Screen_Shot_2014-08-20_at_8.02.47_PMSummer is coming to a close and for most children that means getting out of the holiday mode and back into the grind of studying their books and concentrating on school work. But for a trio of kids all under the age of 11, their summer holidays were stimulating and learning to make beading items and handcrafts using recycled materials. This year, MAMAS founder, Ophelia Novelo hosted its 9th annual summer camp for kids for a total of 6 weeks. Our news team stopped by for a brief closing ceremony at her residence and spoke to the participants and its founder on the event.

“We made a lot of stuff like bracelets, earing, chains and those things and I like how we do things and how we do a lot of pretty stuff and I spent my summer with lot of fun.”


Shelly Munoz - Graduate


“I did a lot of earing and bracelets but I find a little bit hard to do but I like doing it.”


Maria Novelo - Reporter


“Tell us about what you did here?”


Vidal Chuck – Graduate


“Beading and arts and it good an I enjoyed it.”


Ophelia Novelo – Founder/Teacher, MAMAS


“They were engage in beading and handcrafts and those were the two main subjects that we did and we started for three weeks and it ended up to a month and a half, we stated with ten and gradually they stopped and we ended up with three but at least we had three good ones.  I am very proud for what they accomplished for the whole of the six weeks that we had and I am just thankful for the parents that the allow the children to come for the summer program and then I would encourage the other parents to do the same thing for next year because it is nine years we have been giving summer programs and this is the last day and the only one that is very low.”


Nailea Trejo


“I would like to thank my mom and teacher Ofelia for doing a good job and helping us students.”


The short ceremony had the participation of Councilor Neri Ramirez in absence of Area Representative John Briceno.
