Killeen Mayor to host reception in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month

The community is invited to attend, proclamation will be presented

KILLEEN, Texas (Sep. 20, 2021) – On Tuesday, Sept. 21, Killeen mayor Jose Segarra will honor Hispanic Heritage Month during a reception at City Hall at 4p.m.

The event will take place in the City Hall foyer on the first floor (101 North College Street) and the community is invited to attend. Both the Hispanic-American Chamber of Commerce-Central Texas and the Killeen-Fort Hood League of United Latin American Citizens Council (LULAC) have been invited, as mayor Segarra presents an official proclamation.

Hispanic Heritage Month is observed throughout the nation annually from Sept. 15 – Oct. 15 and began in 1968 when President Lyndon B. Johnson proclaimed Hispanic Heritage Week. In 1988, Johnson expanded the commemoration to a month-long celebration.

The national theme of this year’s observance is “Esperanza: A Celebration of Hispanic Heritage and Hope.” The City of Killeen looks forward to celebrating the gifts of the Hispanic culture through its rich heritage, deep sense of community and family, and appreciation for all contributions that make this country what it is today.
