National Hispanic Heritage Month

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15th to October 15th, by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

Did You Know…?

Spanish is the second most spoken language in the United States.  There are approximately 254 million people who speak English and approximately 43 million people who speak Spanish.

Thought of the Week

There are great benefits for those who try to have an open mind. Being ready to explore new ideas and learn new things makes us more able to move with change. And one thing is clear: change will happen often. It’s a part of life.
