FANHS appreciates its supporters!

As a non-profit organization run 100% by volunteers - including the FANHS Executive Director and FANHS national archivist - the Filipino American National Historical Society truly appreciates the energies and resources of all who've supported FANHS for more than 26 years.
All FANHS officers, national trustees, chapter leaders and members pay for all travel and expenses to attend meetings and special events like the FANHS biennial national conferences. Many FANHS events and projects are also funded by local FANHS leaders and friends. Cheers and thanks to all!

**At the FANHS 2008 conference in Alaska, Titania Buchholdt and family continued the tradition begun by her late mother and former FANHS national president Thelma Buchholdt who sold indigenous clothing, various textiles and artifacts from the Philippines -- including many rare pieces -- and donated all sales to FANHS.

**At the July 23rd FANHS fundraiser, "Dance Down Memory Lane" (see poster in earlier post), Primo Kim Villaruz will selling his latest CD "Make it Right!" with proceeds going to FANHS.

**Linda Nietes, of Philippine Expressions Bookstore in Los Angeles, will be a "Silver Sponsor" for this year's FANHS National Conference. Philippine Expressions carries many of the books written by writers who'll be part of the FANHS Authors' Reception on July 22.

**The Filipino Community of Seattle (FCS) is now a "Silver Sponsor" for the 2010 FANHS National Conference.
Many thanks to you all!!

We'll continue to highlight other FANHS supporters. There's still time to show support for this year's national conference. If you'd like to buy an ad or make other donations to FANHS, please download form here or email:
