Holiday Greetings From CTLatinoNews…..and 2014 in photos

 

 
 
Happy Holidays to all of you – our diverse readers, sponsors and advertisers.  We are taking some time off to enjoy the holiday season with our families, but we will back  in January with more stories, more features…as we continue to report on Latinos in Connecticut.
As we enter the end of our 3rd year, we have worked to make a difference in media coverage of Latinos, tell objective stories about our community and  provide information to decision makers who want to learn more about the many Hispanic residents in our state.
We wish you all a joyous, prosperous 2015.  We leave you for now, until January,  with CTLatinoNews photos which capture some of the memorable moments which are now part of Connecticut’s Latino history.
