Chinese Center on Long Island 長島中華協會

Presidents' Message - June 2018

As we come to the close of another school year and the beginning of summer, we have achieved so much this year.  The kids continue to spread the Chinese culture through performances in various high profile venues including the MET, Tilles Center, Nassau County Legislative Building, and others.  Our membership has grown, language class size has increased, lion troupe is flourishing with kids of all ages and all our other programs have been run like clockwork.  This does not mark the end of activities until September at CCLI; we still have many ongoing activities including the weekly senior club meetings, table tennis, ballroom dancing, Toastmaster, annual summer CCLI picnic in July, and preparation for Chinese American Night in August.  We want to thank all of the committees’ members making these events possible.

It was a great honor for CCLI to host this year’s Asian-American Heritage Month Celebration at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building.  The turnout was astonishing as so many of our members and various Chinese organizations came to support this grand event.  There were so many people that almost half of the attendees had to stand as there was not enough chairs.  We want to thank all of our fellow Chinese organizations in attendance.

I hope everyone enjoys the summer and we will see you in July for our annual picnic and August during Chinese American Night.
