FANHS Rio Grande Chapter's collaborative project

If you're in New Mexico, please visit this new exhibit on the Manila Galleon Trade at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. http://www.nationalhispaniccenter.org/index.php?&option=com_content&task=view&id=197&Itemid=295&year=2008&month=11&day=16&agid=264&cview=view_detail FANHS Rio Grande Chapter is one of the sponsoring organizations. FANHS National Trustee Dely Alcantara writes:

"The opening for the Manila Galleon Trade exhibit is November 8th. Attached is the brochure announcing the exhibit. The National Hispanic Cultural Center is very excited about this collaboration with the Filipino community in New Mexico. The curator and I are hoping to leverage this to a major exhibit, lecture series, and cultural exchange between the Philippines, Mexico and New Mexico in conjunction with 2012 Centennial of NM statehood.

Please circulate widely.

Thank you very much.

Dely"

Recent update: The November 8th opening reception for this exhibit was a huge success! While 50 people are generally expected at historical exhibits such as these, organizers prepared Filipino and Mexican food for 100 people. FANHS Trustee Dely Alacantara reported that more than 200 people attended the opening reception!!

CONGRATULATIONS to FANHS Rio Grande Chapter and all the sponsoring organizations
