Heritage Language Day, celebrated on February 21st of each year, is a day dedicated to the recognition and celebration of heritage languages.  In November 1999, the General Conference of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) proclaimed February 21st as International Mother Language Day.  This day is meant to promote the preservation and protection of all languages used by peoples of the world.  

Since 2002, SOHL has held public celebrations in recognition of Heritage Language Day. This event is Free to the public and we welcome everyone to attend. Greetings will be deliverd by special guests!
