Dear all,

I am very glad to report to you that with your supports our participating in Chinese Community 2012 Rose Parade was a great success.
Thank you all for your helps, participation and volunteering! 

We did it again this year, following our first ever history making entry in the Rose Parade last year.
At the beginning, people asked us why we want to do this - spending time and efforts for organizing the event. Our answer is - promoting our culture and visibilities in Portland Oregon.

Why? Please take a look the history of the unfair law - " Chinese Exclusion Act"  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_Exclusion_Act

Currently, more than 130 year later, the US congress finally is ready for a belated apology.
"众院将通过《排华法案》道歉案 华人需居安思危" http://www.wenxuecity.com/news/2012/06/15/1828071.html

So we should be proud of what we did together for making a difference!

Please join us for our Celebration Dinner on Sunday, 6/24, 6pm at Wong's King Restaurant.  Details attached below.
