About This Project

This website was planned and completed by the Speaker Series committee of the NVC Foundation. The Speaker Series is a monthly, Saturday evening event held at the NVC Memorial Hall and presents a variety of people sharing and reflecting on their personal experiences.

Among the many topics that are presented at the Speaker Series, they include personal stories of life changing events during the WWII years from incarceration to military service, interesting occupation settings or unique travel experiences, and more.

The Speaker Series has proven to be a very popular series, attracting capacity crowds to attend the program. The program is provided at no charge, and light refreshments are served after the presentation.

The goal of this website is to make those Speaker Series available online for access anywhere in the world at anytime, so the experiences of the individuals and groups presenting can reach a wider audience, preserve history, and educate future generations about the Japanese American legacy.
