The Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County is hosting an opening reception for the new permanent exhibit about the history of the Hmong people who live in our community. The exhibit is the Eagle Scout project of Phillip Alvarado, who relied on his strong interest in history to work with the Hmong community and create an exhibit that will remain in the Museum’s new multi-cultural wing.
Visitors to the exhibit will learn that the Hmong people came to the military aid of the United States during the Vietnam War in the “Secret War” in Laos. At war’s end, the survivors were forced to flee their homeland for their lives and spent long periods of time in refugee camps in Thailand. Many Hmong people sought refuge in countries around the world, and some came to the U.S. A large number began new lives in the Yuba-Sutter area, and this is their story. A number of unique items from their colorful culture are included in the exhibit.
The reception will take place at the Museum on Friday, November 16th from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. The public is welcome, and there is no admission charge. The Museum is located at 1333 Butte House Road in Yuba City. Regular open hours are Wednesday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free.
