(Most County offices are closed today)...It is a holiday in Imperial County.
Last year the County Board of Supervisors set March 31 as a day to celebrate the life of Cesar Chavez. This is the second year the special day is being observed. Chavez was one of the most prolific labor leaders in the nation, and a co-founder of the United Farm Workers Union. He was also a very prominent civil rights leader. March 31st is a day for Imperial County to pay tribute to the late Cesar Chavez.
