The 2017 Walk of Remembrance will begin with introductions at the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History and include light refreshments. Pacific Grove Mayor Protempore Robert Huitt, Museum Executive Director Jeanette Kihs, and 5th generation Chinese Fishing Village descendant Gerry Low-Sabado will be among those greeting visitors to the event. Low-Sabado will speak about her quest to tell her ancestor’s Chinese American story. There will be a facilitated discussion to discover connections about how our own experiences impacts and influences history.The Monterey Bay Lion Dance Team will lead the walk to Lover’s Point, then along the bike trail, to the site where the village once stood.
Comfortable walking shoes are recommended for the half-mile trek.
With the shared goal of honoring the lives of early Chinese-American settlers, the Walk of Remembrance is made possible by a partnership between The Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History, The City of Pacific Grove, The Heritage Society of Pacific Grove, The Monterey Bay Lion Dance Team, The National Coalition Building Institute - Monterey County, and American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California - Monterey County
