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.

Last month, our member, Stella Chow, was invited by San Gabriel Pomona Regional Center (SGPRC) in Pomona to talk about “transition services” for the parents in SGPRC.  Stella’s presentation was well received, and had a lot of good comments from the parents who attended the training.

On November 11, 2006, at 2 pm, Stella will make the same presentation in First Christian Church, Alhambra for those parents who missed the SGPRC session.  Stella will share her experience on transition, including how she began working on her son’s transition from high school to post-educational services.  She will also conduct a question and answer section regarding transitional services.
