Claudia Martinez, Ed.D., is the organizer of the Tattnall County Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration.

The first district Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration event in Tattnall County will be held on Saturday, September 17, 2022, at Tattnall County High School (TCHS), from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Come and see traditional folklore student performances starting at 10 a.m. Doors will open at 9:30 a.m.

Various booths will be set up for everyone to visit after the performances. A social gathering will follow the booth visits. Please arrive early to ensure you get a seat and a ticket for your free authentic Mexican meal and other freebies. 

This event will allow those attending to experience Hispanic culture, art, music, and food.  All are invited to enjoy folkloric student performances, followed by a social gathering full of authentic food and much more.  All is free, too.

Local individuals, businesses, and area colleges and universities are invited to participate in this event by hosting a booth that provides information about their business or class offerings and includes an educational activity about the Hispanic culture.  For example, students could be provided materials and an opportunity to work on various arts and crafts or someone could teach how to make salsa and distribute a sample. Distributing foods that represent the Hispanic culture is encouraged.

Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends on October 15. This year's theme is "Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation." During this month, the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America are celebrated.
