Town of Greenwich raises Mexican flag at Town Hall to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month
The Town of Greenwich celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month with the annual raising of the Mexican flag at town hall.
First Selectman Fred Camillo spoke in person and shared a recorded message from the Mexican Consulate General of Boston.
“Mexico is our important neighbor to the south that we share a long border with,” says Ann Blumensaadt, an organizer of the event. “We have so many residents of Mexican descent that I thought it was important to support them and acknowledge them and do something positive.”
Friday also marked Mexican Independence Day.
