Remember, if you want to know more about what the Howard County Library System  is doing for National Hispanic Heritage Month, go here.

Copa Communidad, the soccer tournament which was to be held on Saturday, the 23rd, was canceled due to weather.  If they pick a new date I will let you know.

Oakland Mills High School held a Hispanic Heritage Gala Night on Friday, September 22nd. Do you know if any other county high schools have planned events for Hispanic Heritage Month?

You may recall that I really wanted to do an organized run-down of events for Black History Month and got bogged down in the organization process. I feel as though I’ve made some progress on this one. The devil is in the details, as they say. Hopefully all the links work and there are no significant omissions.

Just for fun, here’s a quick listicle from the Smithsonian Latino Center:
