 Celebrating 102 years of the opening of the Panama Canal - Aug. 2016.  "Preserving the Past and Inspiring the Future" 



What a remarkable day in Panama's History!  June 26, 2016 , marks the day of the Panama Canal expansion. Houston Association of Panamanians first gives homage to the Builders and Construction workers of the Canal. They were Men and Women from the Caribbean Diaspora who sacrificed their lives and livelihood at the expense of their families. We will never forget your sacrifice and are eternally grateful. Secondly, we thank the Workers of various Backgrounds and Ethnicities who worked on the Panama Canal Expansion.  Because of your work, Panama and other nations have new economic outlook for generations to come.  Viva Panama!!
