  • Asian American & Pacific Islanders (AAPI) Heritage Month

    May marks the celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. “The month of May was chosen for AAPI Heritage Month because it commemorates the immigration of the first Japanese people to the United States on May 7, 1843. May is also a significant month because it recognizes Golden Spike Day, May 10, 1869, which marks the completion of the transcontinental railroad that was built with significant contributions from Chinese workers.” -Minhae Shim Roth

I’m confident families will find both events very entertaining.
