Chinese Center on Long Island 長島中華協會

Presidents' Message - October 2017

October was certainly a busy month at CCLI! The School, Chinese Dance and Lion Troupe are back in full swing! There’s a lot going on and more coming!

Don’t forget to come for our Thanksgiving Iron Chef at the Center on Friday, November 10th at our monthly meeting. Bring your most creative excellent dishes and pit them against other talented chefs for prizes and bragging rights. Please see elsewhere in the newsletter for additional details.

On December 3rd the Center will hold the much-loved Applebee’s Flapjack Fundraiser in New Hyde Park. This is open to all members and to friends and family. Come for the pancakes (I can attest they are fluffy and delicious) and stay for the company. Details are included in this newsletter.

Finally to end this note, we would like to give special thanks to Helen and Jimmie Chin. For many years Helen and Jimmie have been donating their time, providing financial support and imparting their wisdom with the Board of Directors to make the Center the great place it is today. The holidays have come early this year and they have generously donated $5,000 towards Center funds. There are not enough words that can be spoken by any number amount of people to show how grateful we are. Thank you Helen and Jimmie!
