Eastern California Museum highlights Manzanar

Thursday Evening Program places focus on Manzanar

The Friends of the Eastern California Museum will continue their community outreach program with a great evening program presented this Thursday September 24th by Alisa Lynch. Lynch is a ranger with the National Park Service and is Chief of Interpretation at Manzanar National Historic Site, located just south of Independence on Hwy 395.

The program will highlight a few of the ten thousand stories of ten thousand lives at Manzanar during World War II. Those attending the program will learn about how the National Park Service uses personal stories to connect 80,000 visitors to the site each year. The illustrated program will be followed by a question an answer period.

The free program will be presented in Independence at the Historic Winnedumah Hotel at 7:00pm on Thursday September 24th.
The “Friends” are a nonprofit organization dedicated to the support of the Eastern California Museum and its programs and to aid in increasing the Eastern California Museum’s value as a public educational facility with an emphasis on heritage.
