We chose Harry Gaston for our ofrenda because he was one of the founders of the West Side Boosters. He inspired us in many ways, since he made it possible for young children to stay out of trouble and keep them motivated by playing sports. In our ofrenda, we included a variety of different things about him to represent how he was a person. Sunflower seeds will represent how he always had them with him when he was at the athletic fields. We put a bulldog next to his picture because everywhere he went he brought his dog with him. The whistle represents him a coach, since he coached for the Boosters.

The goal of our project was to honor a man that gave everything he had to a community for the young kids so that they could learn and be disciplined, rather then on the streets doing the wrong things. He influenced us by being on the court or on the athletic fields, instead of not doing anything at all.

Elegimos a Harry Gaston para nuestra ofrenda porque fue uno de los fundadores de los West Side Boosters. Nos inspiró en muchos aspectos, ya que hizo posible que los niños pequeños no se metan en problemas y manteniendolos motivados con la practica de deportes. En nuestra ofrenda estamos poniendo unas semillas que representan la forma en que seimpre las tenía cuando él estaba en el campo deportivo. También pusimos al lado un perro buldog porque a todas partes que iba, él siempre llevaba a su perro. El silbato representa que era un entrenador, y que él entrenó a los Boosters. El ojectivo de nuestro proyecto es para honrar a un hombre quien dio todo lo que tenía a una comunidad para que los ninos puedan aprender y ser disciplinados, en lugar de andar en las calles haciendo cosas malas. Él nos influyó por estar en las canchas o en los campos deportivos en lugar de no hacer nada en absoluto.
