O.C. Agricultural & Nikkei Heritage Museum

The new Orange County Agricultural & Nikkei Heritage Museum (at the Fullerton Arboretum), will open its first exhibition, Sowing Dreams, Cultivating Lives: Nikkei Farmers in Pre-World War II Orange County, on Feb. 10th. This exibit will depict the journey of "the early Japanese immigrants to California, and follow their stories as they establish permanent communities in Orange County by marrying, raising families, founding schools and social groups, and above all, cultivating the land."

Good people have been working their butts off in preparation for this museum and this exhibit,... So the least you can do is go, have fun, and learn something.
