A Haitian celebration

The start of Haitian Cultural Heritage Month will be commemorated with an event at 11 a.m. Monday at Village Hall, 500 NW 87th St.

The event kicks off Miami-Dade's celebration of Haitian Cultural Heritage Month, and will feature the unveiling of a commemorative poster. There will be complimentary food and drinks.

It will mark the first time El Portal has hosted the event, which was previously held at the office of the Miami-Dade mayor.

''I think it's a good opportunity to celebrate the Haitian culture just like Hispanics and African Americans do with their months,'' said the Village Mayor, Marriette SaintVil, who was born in Haiti.

The event is open to the public; RSVP required. To attend, call Carol Aubrun, assistant village manager, at 305-795-7880 by Friday.
