1:00-2:30 pm LUNAR NEW YEAR OPEN HOUSE (Free)
Come join us for our final event of the Lunar New Year (aka Chinese New Year). There will be food, exciting performances by our students, and activities for all ages!
Our fantastic Jing Ying moms have organized crafts for children (make-your-own Chinese paper snake, lantern, and goldfish); Bixia Pan will teach the umbrella twist and Chinese language; and Wendy Ng will explain the Chinese naming of the year in a clever, visual way (very interesting!)
Don't forget to thank them and our refreshment/decorating team for all that they do to make Jing Ying the special place that it is. They not only donate their time, they often supplement our supplies with their own. If anyone wants to help them, they are happy for more volunteers and are a fun group to be around.
