Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month!
Each year in the United States between September 15 and October 15 we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by paying tribute to people of Hispanic heritage from the past and present who have impacted our nation and who have enriched our American culture. Living in the Houston area, we enjoy a wonderful diversity of cultural influences and there are many different opportunities open for us to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. How will you celebrate?
