       Texas Tejano.com, a San Antonio-based research, publishing, and communications firm, and The Hispanic Heritage Center of Texas, will hold a memorial  ceremony beginning at 10:00am on Saturday, Sept. 21st at the historic San Fernando Cemetery #1 (1100 S. Colorado).

        In 1936, during the state’s centennial celebration, the state placed several Historical headstones at these hallowed grounds commemorating the contributions, sacrifices and roles Tejanos played in the revolution.

       The event is being held in honor of the Tejano participants of the Texas Revolution who are interred at this cemetery. The event will begin with a walking tour of the venerated grounds of one of the oldest cemeteries in San Antonio; San Fernando #1. Followed by brief remarks by President and Founder of TexasTejano.com Rudi R. Rodriguez.

       Everyone is invited to attend. The ceremony is an official Tejano Heritage Month event and is free and open to the public. We thank our sponsors; The Hispanic Heritage Center of Texas and Valero for their support of Tejano Heritage Month. For more information, contact Texas Tejano.com at (210) 673-3584.
