A Family's Story: The Chew Legacy

We Celebrate Our Heritage-China continues with A Family's Story: The Chew Legacy this Saturday, May 16th at 2 p.m. at the El Paso Museum of History.

Join Newmanistas Chief Justice David Wellington Chew, Judge Linda Chew and Patricia Chew for a compelling look into their family's story.

Presentation will include old family photos and stories and a visit with special family friend, Martin Yee. Mr. Yee will also share his family's odyssey from China through Mexico. Don't miss this opportunity to meet one of El Paso's most prominent families.

Museum officials do say: "SPACE IS LIMITED, please arrive early!"

Make time also to visit the display of artifacts in the Museum's front lobby. The Chews and Mr. Yee have generously loaned some family heirlooms for the display including the Chew's great-grandmother's binding shoe and Mr. Yee's family rice bowl made from a coconut-dating back to the 1800's.
