Food For Thought: Asians Uncharted
What do you collect? Would you like to show off your collection?
We have a rotating exhibition in the Aurora History Museum lobby called Collector’s Corner. It features collections from local collectors/residents for a 3-month period. The display is a great way to celebrate local interests and promote the idea of collecting.
We are currently looking for new collectors. Do you have a collection? Would you be interested in loaning some of your collection to the Museum to put on display? We would love to hear from you!
Get in touch with our Curator of Exhibits, MaryJane Valade at 303-739-6658 or firstname.lastname@example.org. She can give you all of the specifics! Please feel free to share this email with anyone you think might be interested in sharing their collection with the Museum!

Asian Pacific Heritage month is a
celebration of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States. Asian-Pacific
encompasses all of the Asian Continent and the various Pacific Islands.
In June of 1977, a congressional bill was
introduced to that called upon the President to proclaim the first ten days of
May as Asian Pacific-Heritage Week. Then following month, a similar bill was
introduced to the Senate. Both of them were passed. On October 5, 1978,
President Jimmy Carter signed a Joint Resolution designating the annual
celebration. George H.W. Bush signed an extension, making the week-long
celebration into a month-long celebration twelve years later. In 1992, the
official designation of May as Asian-Pacific Heritage Month was signed into
The celebration is set in the month of
May to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the U.S on May 7,
1843, and also to mark the anniversary of the completion of the
transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869, where a majority of those who laid
the tracks were Chinese immigrants.
