September's Spotlight: Hispanic Heritage Month
The observation of Hispanic Heritage Month started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to recognize the contributions and vital presence of both Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and to observe their native heritage and contributing culture. Festivities begin on September 15, marking the anniversary of independence for the Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. With great fanfare, celebrations sweep across Latin America, Central American and on into Mexico and Chili commemorating each country’s independence from week to week!
