 Special Event:

National Hispanic Heritage Month, enacted as an official law on August 17, 1988, celebrates 30 days of histories, cultures, and arts of many Hispanic countries. In the U.S especially, this is the time to recognize the contributions of Hispanic Americans who best represent their historical and cultural achievements for the United States whose ancestors came from countries such as the Caribbean, Spain, Central and South America. Additionally, the significance of the 30-day celebration marks the Independence Days for each Hispanic country that lands on different days of the time period. National Hispanic Heritage Month is vital reminder of how much strength Hispanics value from their ancestral roots, and the love that stems deep within their cultures, so it is important to respect and learn about the lifestyles and stories of major Hispanic influences and figures in our community.
