Asian-Pacific American ~~ HERITAGE MONTH …


May is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month.

The month-long observance was officially designated in 1992 and the month of May was chosen to commemorate the first Japanese immigrants to the U.S. on May 7, 1843 and to recognize the Chinese immigrants who helped lay tracks for the transcontinental railroad, which was completed on May 10, 1869.
