The University of Hawaii at Hilo hosts a pair of workshops on “Preserving Family Collections,” to be held on Monday, June 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) on the Manono Campus (Building 381, Room 16), and Tuesday, June 17 at 3:30 p.m. at the North Hawai`i Education and Research Center (NHERC) in Honoka‘a. Both events are free and open to the public.

The workshops will be conducted by Gina Vergara-Bautista, archivist with the Filipino Digital Archives of Hawai‘i and the Hawai‘i State Archives.

The workshops are co-sponsored by OLLI - UH Hilo, the Big Island Filipino Community Council, the Filipino Community Center, the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa’s Office of Multicultural Student Services and the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts.
