Join us on Saturday, February 15th for the Day of Remembrance Open House.
The Day of Remembrance marks the signing of Executive Order 9066, which authorized the incarceration of over 120,000 Japanese and Americans of Japanese ancestry living on the West Coast during WWII. 121 of those were from Vashon-Maury Island.
Today, 78 years after, we are seeing history repeat itself with the unjust detention and racist treatment of immigrants in our country.
We are hosting a Tsuru (crane) Folding table to contribute to the Tsuru for Soidarity action (http://tsuruforsolidarity.org
Mukai Farm & Garden celebrates Vashon’s Japanese American and agricultural heritage. The Joy and Heartache Exhibit’s history panels are now permanently displayed in the Mukai house. The garden designed and installed by Kuni Mukai around 1930’s is now restored and is being enjoyed by many visitors.
Come to learn the history and fold cranes with us!
Open House is on Saturday, February 15th, 1:00 – 4:00 pm. All are welcome!
