       (San Antonio, Texas) September 17, 2012 – Texas, a San Antonio based research, publishing, and communications firm, A.L.M.A. (Alamo Legacy and Missions Association) and the Hispanic Heritage Center of Texas, will hold a memorial  ceremony beginning at 10:00am on Saturday, Sept. 22nd 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 hollowed 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 Rudi R. Rodriguez.

       The ceremony is an official Tejano Heritage Month event and is free and open to the public. This year, we thank our newest sponsors; The City of San Antonio, The Hispanic Heritage Center of Texas and Valero Energy for their support of Tejano Heritage Month.
