To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War and the contributions and culture of the Hmong people in the United States, UC Merced will host a symposium Friday entitled “Southeast Asian American Legacies” that will include speakers, a poetry reading and theater performances.
The Salvation Army and the Merced Sun-Star are launching their annual Helping Hands campaign to raise money for local families. Coordinators hope to raise at least $55,000 during the drive this month. Donations may be made at the Merced Salvation Army office, at the Merced Sun-Star, by mail or online.
