NEJACL Fall Potluck: Hidden Treasures Do you have a closet filled with items your family has saved over the years, whether it's from the WWII camps or from your Issei ancestors? You'll have an opportunity to find out more about them from experts at JACL's Fall Potluck on Sunday, October 26. Representatives from the Japanese American National Museum (JANM) in Los Angeles will be discussing their work to collect and catalog photos and memorabilia being donated by Susumu Ito, New England JACL member and 442nd veteran, for a proposed JANM exhibit. You are invited to bring one or two items to show the JANM representatives and share the stories behind them with the group. Our speakers and guests from JANM will include Maggie Wetherbee, Collections Manager, and other members of the JANM staff.
