To spread awareness about Arcadia's history to our youth through an interactive learning experience, ACYC collaborated with the Gilb Museum, National Honor Society, and AHS History Bowl to host a History Day in the MPR of Arcadia High School. ACYC invited the Gilb Museum to give a presentation about the use of Santa Anita Park as the Santa Anita Japanese Assembly Center and provided students with the opportunity to see real artifacts from those who went experienced the Assembly Center firsthand. The second half of the event included an idea corkboard where students could post any thoughts, questions, or stories they had about the center. ACYC was thankful to be joined by faculty, students, and representatives from the Gilb Museum at the event.
