The greater Philadelphia region has the second largest Hispanic population in the Northeast and the Greater Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce found that the Hispanic population in the greater Philadelphia region grew by 58.3% from 2000 to 2010. The Hispanic and Latino communities comprise an important part of the Greater Lansdowne community as neighbors, business owners and members of our civic organizations. Hispanic Heritage Month is traditionally observed in September to honor the Independence Days of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatamala and Nicaragua on September 15th and Mexico on September 16th and Chile on September 18th.
The Borough Council of Lansdowne wishes to celebrate the rich history, culture and legacy of the Hispanic and Latino members of our community and honor the influence of members of our community of Hispanic and Latino descent and declares the dates from September 15th to October 15th to be Hispanic Heritage Month. We join with our fellow neighbors of Hispanic and Latino Heritage in celebration of the rich history, valued contribution and cultural influences in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania and the Unities States of America.
