FANHS National Trustees meet in Stockton, CA

MANY THANKS to all who welcomed the FANHS national trustees to Stockton, California! What a productive and fun meeting! Many thanks to Professor Emily Lawsin for this post! "Day 3 of the Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS) Board of Trustees Meeting, with Trustees, Chapter members and friends from all over the country, at the Filipino Center Plaza, Stockton, California, Monday, July 27, 2009. (This photo shows only half of the 50+ people in attendance.) Agenda included planning for the future site of the FANHS National Museum (in Stockton), preserving the FANHS National Pinoy Archives (in Seattle), and discussing next year's FANHS National Conference (in Seattle July 2010). We also had an incredible tour of Stockton's historic Little Manila, where we met a 103-year-old Manong at the Filipino Federation of America, and saw spirit-filled artifacts at the Legionarios del Trabajo's Daguhoy Lodge (founded in 1926). Maraming Salamat to the FANHS Stockton Cha
