Hispanic Heritage Month in Gaithersburg, Maryland

Hispanic Heritage Month in Gaithersburg, Maryland

 

We're celebrating September 15 through October 15 as Hispanic Heritage Month in the City of Gaithersburg in honor of American citizens whose ancestry can be traced back to Spain, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Spanish speaking countries of the Caribbean. Hispanics have had a positive and varied influence on our country and our City through their strong commitment to family, faith, hard work, and service. They have shaped and enhanced our national character with centuries-old traditions that reflect the multiethnic and multicultural customs of their communities. We'll announce activities soon.

This is a City of Gaithersburg announcement.

 

 

#DYK Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated in the middle of the month, as opposed to the end, because Sept. 15th marks the independence days of five Latin America countries:
🇨🇷 Costa Rica
🇲🇽 Mexico
Central & South America & the Spanish speaking countries of the Caribbean!
