Saturday, May 25, has been set as Hispanic Senior Citizens Day in Michigan through a measure sponsored by state Rep. Bruce Rendon and approved by the state House today.
Rendon introduced House Resolution 158 to recognize the diverse and vibrant Hispanic senior citizen population which contributes in a great number of ways to Michigan’s culture, economy and society.
“Hispanic senior citizens continually demonstrate their dedication to family and community, and are highly respected for their contributions to the economic, cultural and historical wealth of Michigan,” said Rendon, R-Lake City. “This group of people is a worthy and admirable example for all citizens of this state interested in helping to foster engaged and responsive communities around our state.”
Rendon’s resolution declares May 25 as Hispanic Senior Citizens Day in the state of Michigan and encourages all residents to recognize and celebrate the many accomplishments and contributions that the Hispanic senior citizen community has made to our state.
