The City of North Miami, Florida recognized the Cuban Heritage Collection during a regular city council meeting. Mayor Andre D. Pierre proclaimed October 9, 2012 the Cuban Heritage Collection Day. CHC Chair Esperanza B. de Varona and her assistant Gladys Gómez-Rossié were on hand to receive the proclamation.
As part of the City’s celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, we installed two panel exhibitions in the main lobby of the North Miami City Hall: “Keys to Cuba’s History,” an overview of Cuban history; and “In Search of Freedom,” a display about the Cuban Refugee Program. The exhibitions will be on display through the end of the month.
