Senior Event: Lunch and
Chinese New Year Presentation

Tuesday, January 24, 2023 — 11:30am

Have you ever wondered how to say “Happy New Year” in Chinese?  Why are there so many traditions leading up to the 14 day celebration? What is the meaning behind the 12 year cycle and the animals that represent each year? Why are fireworks set off?

With Mai-Ling, you will not only learn a little Chinese but also what makes the Lunar New Year a lot of fun to celebrate. Through her cultural history and humor she takes you on a journey and self-discovery of how everyone connects to the yearly celebration.

Before the presentation we will enjoy lunch from Ye’s Chinese. Choice of entrée at sign-up:

  • Sweet and sour chicken
  • Orange chicken
  • Shrimp with broccoli
  • Mongolian beef (spicy)
  • Beef kow

Lunch includes chicken fried rice, an eggroll, a fortune cookie, and soda.
