Open in new window

We are pleased to announce that Michael Beck, founder and President of MidwestLatino, has been awarded the 2008 Spirit of Cincinnati: Champion Award from the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB).

He will receive this award together with Jason Riveiro, the President of LULAC Cincinnati (they are pictured above with Cincinnati Mayor, Mark Mallory). Michael is Vice President of LULAC Cincinnati.

Michael and Jason have been chosen to receive this award by a committee comprised of hospitality executives from across the region because of their dedication and partnership with the CVB, and for the significant contributions they made in bringing important meetings, such as the 2011 National Convention of LULAC, to Cincinnati.

Each year the Cincinnati USA CVB honors individuals who have made significant contributions to the convention and tourism industry with the Spirit of Cincinnati USA Award . The award have quickly become a recognized and coveted honor in the community - it's the highest honor the CVB gives.

The Award ceremony will take place on Thursday, February 12th, 2009

This is the second Spirit of Cincinnati Award for Michael Beck. In 2006 he received already the Wendell P. Dabney Award for Diversity. Named for the son of a Virginia slave who attended college in Cincinnati and was an author, publisher, musician and political activist early in the 20th century, it is given to an individual or organization for the practice of diversity and inclusion, making Cincinnati a destination of choice for people of all backgrounds

Events : SHPE Christmas Party (Dec. 14, 2008)
Posted by admin on 2008/12/19 9:00:00 (1359 reads)

   

The Southwest Ohio Chapter of SHPE (Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers) hosted on Sunday, Dec. 14th, its annual Christmas Party.

More pictures from the meeting are in the Dayton section of our Photo Gallery (click here...)

The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) was founded in Los Angeles, California, in 1974 by a group of engineers employed by the city of Los Angeles. Their objective was to form a national organization of professional engineers to serve as role models in the Hispanic community.

The concept of Networking was the key basis for the organization. SHPE quickly established two student chapters to begin the network that would grow to encompass the nation as well as reach countries outside the United States. Today, SHPE enjoys a strong but independent network of professional and student chapters throughout the nation.

Events : Las Posadas in Cincinnati (Dec. 16th, 2008)
Posted by admin on 2008/12/16 22:30:00 (1425 reads)

Las Posadas (Spanish for "The Inns") is a eight-day celebration with origins in Mexico beginning December 16th and ending December 24th. It is a yearly tradition for many Catholic Mexicans and some other Latin Americans and symbolizes the trials which Mary and Joseph endured before finding a place to stay where Jesus could be born. It is a very important Christmas Tradition for the people of Latin America.

Latin American countries have continued to celebrate this holiday to this day, with very few changes to the tradition. In some places, the final location may be a church instead of a home. Individuals may actually play the various parts of Mary (Maria) and Joseph with the expectant mother riding a real donkey (burro), with attendants such as angels and shepherds acquired along the way. Or the pilgrims may carry images of the holy personages instead. At the end of the long journey, there will be Christmas carols (villancicos), children will break open pinatas by striking these colorful papier-mache objects with bats while blind-folded to obtain candy hidden inside, and there will be a feast.

Every home has a nativity scene and the hosts of the Posada act as the innkeepers. The neighborhood children and adults are the pilgrims (Peregrinos), who have to request lodging by singing a traditional song about the pilgrims. All the pilgrims carry small lit candles in their hands, and four people carry small statues of Joseph leading a donkey, on which Mary is riding. The head of the procession will have a candle inside a paper lamp shade.

The pilgrims will symbolically ask for lodging at three different houses, but only the third one will allow them in. That will be the house where the Posada will be held for that evening. Once the "innkeepers" let them in, the group of guests come into the home and kneel around the Nativity scene to pray (typically, the Rosary). This is followed by the singing of traditional Christmas songs and a party for the children, including a piñata.

Open in new window

This year, the Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA , has organized for the very first time in Cincinnati Las Posadas, that took place in the Cincinnati Art Museum. We had our three Wise Men, piñata, and a lot of good food. Expect this to become an annual tradition.
