CPAD Corner (January 2016)
17 January 2016
Dear CPAD families and friends,
On behalf of the whole CPAD Board, we send you our heartfelt wishes with joy and may a joyful spirit keep glowing in your heart and families throughout 2016.
2015 has been a busy and exciting year for CPAD! This past year has demonstrated exceptional community collaboration and support for CPAD. With the support of the Chinese American Museum and Asian Youth Center (AYC), CPAD has started our Saturday activities and parent programs at the AYC.
In addition to continuing to provide bilingual and bicultural program activities to our member families, we have been busy breaking ground on our activity center’s construction. With the continuous support of Tak Lau Charity Foundation and Smart Entertainment that sponsored two major Cantonese Opera Charity Nights and many dedicated community donors, CPAD raised a total of $111,528.68 for our Activity Center project.
In the beginning of this new year, as we get ready to take up new challenges, we need to first extend our enthusiastic appreciation to all of our generous donors. In addition, we want to give our deepest thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers, including teachers, parents, teacher aids, donors and friends.
Thank you all for making 2015 a successsful one, and we look forward to many more wonderful collaboration with all of you in this coming year. We welcome not only your continuous generous donation, but also your valuable volunteering as well as your suggestions.
-Vanda Yung, President
