Hispanic Heritage Month
St. Vincent's celebrated the end of Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15th to October 15th. St. Vincent de Paul Center has a sizable number of clients of Hispanic descent. It is an honor to be able to celebrate their culture, heritage and traditions through such a celebration.
On a Friday afternoon, children from the Early Childhood Development Program entertained the crowd in the front lobby. Teachers, volunteers, staff and students were treated to performances from the Birth to Three section. Classrooms constructed signs and made pictures to demonstrate their pride. In addition, classrooms performed songs in English and Spanish, as well as danced the meringue.
We thank the classrooms for a wonderful celebration and salute all of those in our community of Hispanic heritage.
