Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month!

National Hispanic Heritage Month, from Sept. 15 through Oct.15, celebrates and recognizes the contributions Hispanic Americans have made to American society and culture. Mid-September was chosen to honor five of our Central American neighbors who celebrate their Independence days in September.

We have celebrated Hispanic Heritage nationally since 1968, when President Lyndon Johnson approved Hispanic Heritage Week (later expanded into the month by President Reagan.)
