我们長青會春節聯歡會取得圓滿成功,這是我们激动人心的活动和友谊的记忆永存每人心中。今年我们有超过100人参加了我们的活动,包括10多位荣誉嘉宾,县长,镇监督和TDYCC专员/工作人员,代表老人局的Beverly Carter博士,還有義工局和OCA的領導。他们一向支持我們的工作。从问候语和评語中,强调了我们團體的重要性,他们希望尽可能多地提供帮助。 Rose Kaung抓住机会,要求采用音响系统取代我们的非专业家庭音响系统。 David Reggina先生给我们发了一封温馨的信,为我们的明年活动提供了系统。

这次活动的成功归功于全體會員們的支持和努力,還有我们許多熱心志愿者的全力以赴和互助精神。帮助我们订购,采购,佈置會場,入場登記和分发食品和水,還拿起相機幫我們拍照,留下珍貴的鏡頭。這些志願做義工的會員默默地為大家服務,犧牲自己看不到節目表演,不為名利。這些做了不少好事的志工不勝枚舉。在此僅向他們的奉獻精神致以萬分感謝和讚揚。

會場佈置得充滿節日氣氛,牆上掛了不少的節日祝福語,春聯和謎語。節目開始的會員新年獻歲和每個節目的表演都很優秀,體現了中華文化的特色。博得在場貴賓們的熱烈讚賞。會員們的精彩表演,讓我们差点忘了他们都是上了年紀的人。還有Line Dance很受欢迎。

除了庆祝中国新年之外,我们还庆祝长青俱乐部成立20周年。大會派發了精美的小册子, 許多相片回顧我們二十年的歷程。创始人之一劉實前會長写下了我们俱乐部的精彩历史。我们都应该珍惜我們這20年來之不易。在聚会期间,镇监督Paul Feiner先生表示,我们是TDYCC的最佳团队,并祝愿我们继续取得再20年成功. 我们很自豪地听到他对我们的讚許和鼓勵。在聯歡會上,費納先生還向長青會頒發獎狀,肯定我們的工作。OCA也一向支持我們的工作,向長青會捐款500美元。在此向他們致以萬分感謝。

我们去年创建了一个网站。我们会在其中发布我们的照片和幻燈片。请将您在聚会期间拍摄的一些照片发给我们,我们可以将其添加到我们的网站。我們的網站是www.gecny.com

有一个快乐和健康的猪年。萬事如意。

Our celebration of 2019 Chinese New Year has been a great success. The memory of our exciting activities and friendship will last forever.  This year we have over 100 people participated to our event, including more than 10 honor guests, County Executive, Town Supervisor, and TDYCC commissioner/staff, Dr. Beverly Carter of Department of Senior Programs and Services, and the leaders of RSVP and OCA. They have always supported our work. From the greetings and remarks, they all emphasized the importance of our group, and they would like to offer helps as much as they can. Rose Kaung took the opportunity and requested privately for the assistance in the audio system to replace our current nonprofessional home sound system.  Mr. David Reggina later sent us a warm letter and promised that they will provide us a sound/video system for our next year's event.

The success of this event was attributed to the support and efforts of all board members, as well as our enthusiastic volunteers, helping us in ordering, purchasing, decorating, registration, food and water distribution. Also help us take pictures, leaving precious lenses. These volunteers quietly registered guests and distributed their lunch. They even missed watching the show without complaint. As the president of the board, I would like to express our gratitude and praise them for their dedication.

The stage was decorated with festive atmosphere with many festive greetings, spring couplets and riddles. The program started with greeting Chinese New Year, followed by performances of each class. They were excellent, reflecting the characteristics of Chinese culture, and gaining the warm praise from guests. The wonderful performance made us almost forgot that they are all seniors. The Line Dance was a hit.

On top of the celebration of Chinese New Year, we also celebrate the 20th year anniversary of the Evergreen Club.  A beautiful booklet was distributed to members and guests.  From those photos, they showed some of our 20 years of history. Richard Liu, one of our founders and past president, wrote the wonderful history of our club. We should all remember how difficult for us to locate this site to hold club activities for 20 years. During the party, Mr. Paul Feiner, the town supervisor, stated that we are the best team of TDYCC, and wish us continued success for another 20 years. We are so proud to hear his approval and encouragement. At the party, Mr. Feiner also presented a certificate to GEC, affirming our work. OCA has also supported our work and donated $500 to GEC. We would like to thank them very much.

We will post our photos and power point in our web site that was created last year. Please send us some of your favorite photos you took during the party, we can add them to our web site. Our website is “www.gecny.com”。

Have a Happy and Healthy year of the PIG and Good luck.
