Earlier this month, the Board of County Commissioners proclaimed the period from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 as Hispanic Heritage Month in Johnson County. Hispanic Heritage Month was established to recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to American life.
The Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center (8788 Metcalf Ave, Overland Park, KS) is hosting a special evening to celebrate Latino culture from 5:30 to 8 p.m., on Thursday, Sept. 26. The evening will feature Latino food, displays of art, dance and the reading of a story about immigration.
More information about the event can be found online.
