ACE just had its first meeting of 2015; we got caught up on the neighborhood news, and began planning our programs. This will be a year of intensive fundraising; we need electricity and plumbing for the Republic Cafe, so we can hold more events there; we also need an office and storage space for our expanding collection.

In the near future, look for us on March 7 in the Founder’s Day celebration at the Salinas Train Station; we are also participating in the upcoming Asian Festival in Salinas Chinatown. Work on collecting, cataloging, and archiving images and objects continues. Expect to see ACE events, pop-ups, and collaborative partnerships throughout the year. We welcome your ideas and participation in fundraising, events, collections, and arts and educational programming!
