Hispanic Heritage Month Proclamation

Hispanic Heritage Month

Whereas, during National Hispanic Heritage Month, we recognize the contributions made by Hispanic and Latino Americans in the United States and celebrate their culture and heritage; and 

Whereas, Hispanic Americans have had a profound and positive influence on our country through their strong commitment to family, faith, hard work and community service. They have enriched and shaped our national character with centuries-old traditions that reflect the multi ethnic and multicultural customs of their proud history; and 

Whereas, generations of Latino Americans have served in America's Armed Forces to defend liberty and advance democracy around the world; and 

Whereas, Hispanic Americans have worked to overcome many challenges, often in the face of discrimination and prejudice, and have successfully embraced the opportunities of the American Dream; and 

Whereas, together we recognize the Latino community in the City of DeSoto, whose love of family, strong work ethic and willingness to share their heritage and traditions have made our city a better place to live; and 

Whereas, nationally, September 15 - October 15 is National Hispanic Heritage Month and the focal point for recognizing and celebrating the many achievements of Latino Americans and applauding their proud legacy of service and dedication to this city; 

Now therefore, I, Rachel L. Proctor, by the power vested in me as Mayor of the City of DeSoto, Dallas County, do hereby proclaim September as: HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH Hispanic Heritage Month
