After some deliberation, the Angel Island Tour will be postponed. The “Immigration Station” is being remodeled until January 2008. Access to the park and perimeter of the buildings is still availible, but access inside the buildings themselves will not. We feel that only being able to walk inside the buildings and seeing sights like the wall carvings by immigrants would allow for the FULLEST experience possible at Angel Island. We will hopefully revive this event next year.
On the brighter side, our film night that was going to accompany this event is still on schedule. We are hoping to show the film “Carved in Silence” which is a documentary about Angel Island that features scenes recreated in the barracks and interviews with detainees.
Check back for more information soon!
