GOVERNOR PROCLAIMS MAY ASIAN PACIFIC AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH
 
Governor Kitzhaber has proclaimed May as Asian Pacific American
Heritage Month. Asian and Pacific Americans have lived and worked in
Oregon for more than 150 years, contributing to our rich history and
culture and helping to advance Oregon’s prosperity. National recognition
of their contributions to our society and collective history takes place
during the month of May and Governor Kitzhaber encourages all Oregonians
to join in this observance.
 
 
HISTORIC CEMETERY VOLUNTEER CORPS SEEKS MEMBERS
 
Just in time for Memorial Day, the Oregon Commission on Historic
Cemeteries is recruiting for the newly-formed Historic Cemetery
Volunteer Corps. After completing free training on historic cemetery
care, the Corps will make themselves available to volunteer in their
local historic cemeteries. The online training will take about an hour
or less. Trained Corps volunteers will also make connections with local
groups who would like help in preserving their historic cemeteries.

HERITAGE BULLETIN OFFERS SIMPLE STEPS FOR PAPER PRESERVATION
 
Paper documents communicate to us through time and are very desirable
for collecting. Preserving them is a challenge, even for professionals.
Learn what you can do to protect your paper treasures in Heritage
Bulletin Number 15: “Simple Steps for Paper Preservation”. Visit
www.oregon.gov/OPRD/HCD/docs/Heritage_Bulletins to learn more.
 
 
“IN THE GAME” OPENER SET AT JEWISH MUSEUM
 
“In the Game”, a multimedia exhibit, will debut at an opening reception
from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m., June 6 at the Oregon Jewish Museum, 310 NW Davis
St., Portland.  Presented on behalf of sports enthusiasts throughout
Oregon, “In the Game” examines the intersection between sports and
community life. The exhibit traces the origins of athletic pursuit
within Oregon Jewish life; traverses the era of exclusion to more
fruitful times of inclusion and emphasizes the impact of sports upon our
everyday lives. It gives context to the outstanding achievements of
numerous superstars and it also features individuals, such as
Trailblazers founder Harry Glickman, who excelled in sports related
activities. 
 
With a theme of “take me out to the ball game,” the opening reception
will feature the first inductions into the Oregon Jewish Sports Hall of
Fame. For more information, visit www.ojm.org ( http://www.ojm.org/ ) or
call (503) 226-3600.
