I wish that the Year of the Snake could grant me wings, so I could fly to all the great things happening in our community.
Last Saturday was Lunar New Year’s Eve. There were numerous events celebrating the occasion. I wanted to be at all five of them, but I could only attend three. The Asian Weekly organized one of the events, the children’s parade and costume contest. You can imagine how crazy it was for us!
Can our community organizations coordinate better, so I don’t have to choose which events to go to? The Asian Pacific Cultural Center’s New Year Celebration at the Tacoma Dome Exhibition Hall was held during the same time as the Chinatown/International District Lunar New Year’s Festival.
Perhaps, now it’s a good time to share with each other your schedule of events, so we can produce a master calendar for the Asian community. (end)
