INVITATION TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY:
As part of the Sinajana Fiesta activities this year, you are cordially invited to the exhibit opening of I SONGSONG SINAJANA: A PHOTO COLLECTION OF SINAJANA this coming WEDNESDAY, October 24, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sinajana Community Center exhibit hall. The photo exhibit showcases the L. Ron Hubbard Collection of black and white photos of the resettlement of Sinajana village by WWII refugees from both old Sinajana, Hagatna and surrounding areas. As a result of the WWII resettlement, this ancient village (indicated in 17th century records) became the largest village in Guam with many residents establishing themselves as parishioners of St. Jude Church. The collection dates from late 19th century to post Urban Renewal period. The exhibit was made possible through a grant from the Guam Visitors Bureau as a way of augmenting and enhancing Chamorro cultural celebrations. Photos were also provided by Sinajana residents, the Capuchin Collection, and the Micronesian Area Research Center at UOG.
The multi-page exhibit catalogue will be provided to the first 100 signed-in guests--one per family.
PLEASE COME, SEE and ENJOY OUR EXHIBIT of over 50 photos. And, please kindly pass this invitation on to relatives, friends, off-island guests and military visitors. The Exhibit Hall will also be opened from Thursday, Oct. 25 to Monday, Oct. 29, 10a.m. to 5:00p.m.
