As Hispanic Heritage Month winds to a close join us in honoring the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans and celebrate the heritage rooted in all Latin American Countries.

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated each year from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. Sept. 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Additionally, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on Sept. 16 and Sept. 18, respectively.
