Dear Somos Primos Readers:

Thank you all for your contributions of personal cuentos, historical tidbits, and great assortment
of articles. It is always an adventure opening up my mail.

You will notice a new category in this issue, Heritage Projects, directly under the United States

It is my hope that if you are starting a heritage related project, such as a family reunion, locating
and identifying a historic site, promoting the contributions of an individual or organization that
you will send the information along and let other know what you are doing. We would like to
share your efforts with readers. You may be starting a project which could encourage others, or
even attract assistance in fulfilling your goal.

As I was preparing the issue, I received a call from Tony Zapata, sharing some good news. Tony
had completed arrangements on a building in Los Angeles for handicapped veterans, to named
after Guy Gabaldon, WWII hero. The dedication of the building will be November 6th. I put
Tony in touch with Steve Rubin, producer of the documentary
East L.A. Marine, the true story of Guy Gabaldon. Steve will be assisting in the text for the
plaque and press releases, etc.

Please let us know what you are doing in your community to share the historic contributions of
your primos or heroes.

The front page in the August issue is a 1980 poster by the well-known work of artist Ignacio
Gomez. The poster is a reminder that Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15 to October
15. Hopefully, you will find some ways in which you can celebrate your Latino heritage.

Let me suggest that you request your City Council to make a public proclamation recognizing
Hispanic Heritage Month. Call your mayor's office and ask how it is done in your city.

The NCLR conference and Family Expo was outstanding. You will see some photos and
comments in this issue and also in the upcoming September issue.

Please keep sending your cuentos. Under Family History, I've included some reactions to every
day items which provoked a response from me. Hope you enjoy them and it gives you a nudge to
send a little cuento on items that you have saved for some reason.

Abrazos, Mimi
