The board of commissioners has declared Sept. 15 through Oct. 15 as Hispanic Heritage Month.
Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the achievements of Hispanic Americans in the arts, education, entertainment, government, history, law, literature, medicine, the military, music, politics, science, sports, and other endeavors. Hispanic communities of Ramsey County, the city of Saint Paul, and across the region and state of Minnesota have made profound impacts in our society and have contributed to the rich cultural diversity of Ramsey County.
