The Town of North Hempstead’s celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, will be highlighted by a ceremony at Town Hall on Sept. 27 at 6 p.m., prior to the scheduled town board meeting. The public is welcome to attend.
As part of the ceremony, Supervisor Judi Bosworth and each councilperson will honor a Hispanic-American from the community who has positively influenced and enriched society.
“In the Town of North Hempstead, we are proud to embrace the heritage and culture of all those who live within our boundaries,” said Bosworth. “Hispanic Heritage Month gives us all a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the many contri-butions of Hispanic-Americans in our community.”
Hispanic Heritage Month begins each year on Sept. 15, the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, with the anniversary of Mexico’s independence on Sept. 16.
