June is a wonderful time of the year! The western hemisphere enjoys the beginning of summer, the end of school, blooming flowers, and endless outdoor activities. Along with these exciting opportunities, June also brings the beginning of Caribbean Heritage Month.

In 2006, President Bush declared June as Caribbean Heritage Month in the United States. Each June, U.S. citizens appreciate and honor the history and culture of the Caribbean people and recognize their contributions to U.S. society.
