North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the town board announced this week that the town will be celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, highlighted by a ceremony at town hall on Sept. 29, at 6:30 p.m., prior to the regularly scheduled town board meeting. All members of the public are welcome to attend.
As part of the ceremony, Supervisor Bosworth and each councilperson will honor a Hispanic-American from their community who has positively influenced and enriched society. Samplings of several Latin American dishes will also be available following the ceremony.

“In the Town of North Hempstead we are proud to embrace openly the heritage and culture of all those who live within our boundaries,” Supervisor Bosworth said. “The contributions of Hispanic-Americans in our community should be recognized by our town and I am looking forward to having the opportunity to do so.”
Hispanic Heritage Month begins each year on Sept. 15, the anniversary of the independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, with Mexico’s anniversary of its independence on Sept. 16.
North Hempstead Town Hall is located at 220 Plandome Rd. in Manhasset. For more information, call 311 or visit
