Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15 through October 15 marks the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. This is an important occasion and opportunity to acknowledge and appreciate the culture, history, and contributions of our Spanish, Caribbean, Central, and South American ancestors.


Celebrating Our Roots

“No matter where we come from or what we’ve gone through, our Hispanic heritage stays with us and affects the way we connect with people and see the world. Hispanic Heritage Month is a way to celebrate us, our cultural backgrounds and contributions."Zully Escobar, Winter Garden Branch Manager

The term "Hispanic" in itself represents diversity, as it blends together many ethnicities and cultures rich in history and customs, all united by two central values: joy and unity. To be Hispanic means to be brave, to be persevering, and determined. It means being hardworking, strong, and enthusiastic. It means being cheerful and radiating happiness to others. It means pride in our family roots and history.

Although we take the time in September and October to celebrate what makes a Hispanic culture unique, diversity is something that should be praised year-round! Honoring our roots and reflecting on our past sustains the culture's legacy and purpose. Using cues from our past, we have a responsibility to forge a path that enables us, as individuals and as a community, to become the best version of ourselves possible. 


Recognizing those who have made a difference
