The Puesta community will be celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month at our Back-to-School Fiesta (September 28th). Please contact Carla Merkow at to help plan or volunteer.

National Hispanic Heritage Month September 15 to October 15

Each year, we observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. We also observe Día de la Raza, Indigenous People's Day, on October 10.
The 2022 Hispanic Heritage Month Observance theme is: “Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation.” The theme encourages us to ensure that all voices are represented and welcomed to help build stronger communities and a stronger nation.
