CAMAC held its Chinese New Year dinner party for the year of 2013 on February 9 at Asian Pearl. Once again, it was a great success. There were 193 people at the event, including members, family members and guests.
The party started with New Year’s greetings from all current and past board members, which were followed by the introduction of our new members. A group photograph was taken as well.
As expected, delicious Chinese cuisine was served, but the evening’s art performances, hosted by Dr. Ke Wu and Dr. Hong Liu, made the party even more entertaining and memorable. We all enjoyed wonderful performances by CAMAC members, friends and family. A solo dance by Stephanie Shi, a two-person comedy show by Dr. Holly Zhao and Dr. Dawei Zheng, and a Zumba group dance led by Dr. Alice Park were just a few examples. The performances ended with a group song.
This year, we also reserved a block of time for our members to catch up with old friends and exchange new information. It was well received by our members.
The board would like to thank everyone who came to the event, especially those who participated in the performances. Special thanks go to the following people: Ms. Junmin (Jenny) Wang, the art designer and director of the art performance; Dr. Jiancheng Shen, who provided technical support for the electronics system; and Mr. Andrew Zheng, the photographer.
