08/28/2011: Rizal150 Exhibition Closing Event and PAWA’s Remembering Rizal

Via Jim Espinas:

Hello dear supporters of the Rizal150 exhibit,

It’s been a wonderful summer celebrating Rizal’s 150th birthday. Summer school tours, wanderers and Rizal diehards have enjoyed the exhibit that YOU helped create. They have given us great feedback and even some on-the-spot donations!

Alas, the time has come to take everything down and make room for what’s next. Please come to our closing reception on Sunday to enjoy the exhibit on last time. We will feature PAWA’s new book “Remembering Rizal.” Also, our resident Rizalista, Penelope Flores will read a special letter from the Knights of Rizal from Heidelberg. The last of our stash of our Rizal Genius t-shirts will be on sale as well.
