Absolutely, a beautiful calendar!!!

Just in time for the new year, our 6th annual Filipino American History Calendar is hot off the press and ready for you to order.

At only $10, it’s the perfect gift for everyone and an affordable way to learn Filipino American history. Each month features a historic photograph from the Filipino American National Historical Society’s extensive archives as well as community members’ personal albums,  as well as important dates in Philippine and Filipino American History. This year’s cover features glamorous Helen Lagrimas Liwanag, a manang who was born in Roseville, CA in 1913 and raised in Stockton. Her family owned the Manila Service Station in Stockton’s Little Manila in the 1940s and 1950s.

If you had your 2011 Calendar, you would know Dec. 13 in 1928, California farmers passed a resolution to exclude Filipino immigration. Also, Dec. 13 in 1941, Filipinos in Stockton called a boycott of Japanese businesses and wore “I Am Filipino” buttons to protect against anti-Japanese racial violence that unfortunately erupted against Asian Americans during World War II . And those are just a few examples of all you will learn from our calendar!

All calendar proceeds benefit the preservation efforts of the Little Manila Foundation and the Museum Fund of the Filipino American National Historical Society.
