The National Museum's 2010 Gala Dinner theme celebrates the 25th Anniversary of its incorporation and will recognize the collective support and contributions by our dedicated volunteers and community organizations who have laid the foundation for the Museum to become what it is today—the home for our history and our community.

From the beginning it was the shared dream of many to create an institution, the Japanese American National Museum, so that the important lessons and legacies of the Japanese American experience would not be forgotten. Since the Museum's inception, it has dedicated its work to preserving and sharing the Japanese American story through innovative programming and exceptional educational programs to hundreds of thousands each year locally, nationally, and internationally. Now, in 2010, the dream continues as the Museum broadens its outreach to new and diverse audiences while incorporating additional unique aspects of our story.

Through the Gala Dinner program and Journal, the National Museum will present a celebration and recognition of the many individuals, communities, organizations, and business from across nation who selflessly came together for one common goal—to ensure that one of America's most important chapters in history is never forgotten, nor repeated.
Congratulations to the Japanese American National Museum for twenty-five years of service and education to the community. If you haven't been able to patronize the museum, or attend one of the many events and exhibition it hosts throughout the year, 2010 seems like a pretty darn good year to support JANM.
