CPAD Coner (January 2007)

Happy New Year 2007!

Unlike previous yearend parties, our 12/2/2006 yearend party included a segment to honor members Tak Lee, Li Hua Lee, and Stella Chow by CPAD for their 15 years of distinguished volunteer work in serving our members and their families.  As always, students and members of Tze-Chi Chinese Academy came.  They provided us a lot of fun programs, good food, and good feelings that exist only among close friends.  We appreciate their supports and friendship.

Assemblymember Judy Chu, our old friend and supporter who had recently won the election to become a commissioner of the State Board of Equalization, joined us to celebrate.  She also presented certificates of recognition from her office to the 3 members commending their contribution to the community.  We deeply appreciate everything Judy had done for us and wish her the best in Sacramento.

In addition, our good friends and supporters Ms. Alice Thomas and Dr. Wheeler from USC UCEDD came that day and added much joy and excitement to the party.  Ms. Linda Ma from New Hope Foundation especially came to celebrate with us.  She introduced a new friend to us, Mr. Tong Wong, who is running for a seat at the Monterey Park City Council.  Welcome, Tony. 

Lastly, our sincere thanks to our teachers: Abel Lam, Pei-Fang Hwang, Linda Lo, and Suzan Chang for helping us make this celebration a very colorful one.
