THE BRONX CELEBRATES PUERTO RICAN HERITAGE MONTH 2010
Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and Comité Noviembre will celebrate Puerto Rican Heritage Month 2010 honoring an important group of Puerto Rican leaders.
The “Celebrando Nuestra Cultura Puertorriqueña” event is especially festive as the Puerto Rican community has made such a great, positive impact on virtually every sector of life in The Bronx. The celebration will be attended by more than 250 Bronx community leaders from the fields of academia, community service, the arts, healthcare, business and communications.
This year’s honorees are: Marcus Solis, ABC Network reporter; and Angel Rodriguez, musician. The keynote speaker for the evening will be Nicholasa Mohr, author of numerous acclaimed books for children and adults.
