On behalf of Michigan Chinese Women Association, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our 27th MCWA Michigan Night. I am overwhelmed by the responses I received during the tickets sale. I am very grateful to all of you for your support. I would like to thank the advisers and former leaders for their contributions and wise leadership. Because of their tireless effort and continued support, MCWA can be recognized by all the communities. We are proud of our team members’ hard work throughout all of the activities this past year, where we worked with our Chinese Community, we also worked with many mainstream communities, like Detroit Institutes of Art Chinese Lantern Festival Art and Tea event, Henry Ford Hospital health seminar, The Rainbow Connection Organization Walk for Kids, and of course, our signature event cook for MI Veterans.
I am grateful and thankful to have this opportunity serving MCWA and our community. I sincerely thank our sponsors and donors for support and participation in this year’s Michigan night. I would also like to thank all the volunteers who always stand for us for all the activities. They are not just great, they are awesome. I would also like to express my heartfelt thanks to all MCWA Board of Directors; all the events would not be possible without their dedication and contribution.
Again, I wish you all enjoy this special night. Thank for joining us and may all your heart be fulfilled.
一年匆匆而過, 尤其是接下密西根中華婦女會會長一職之後,更覺得時間飛快. 在此非常感謝各位理事們的支持, 這一年來的各項活動皆一一順利地完成. 同時亦感謝各位顧問及前會長們的貢獻及英明領導, 密西根中華婦女會才會有今天在社團活動中被肯定及認同. 這一年真的過得很快, 看看年度的活動一覽表,的確該給自己拍拍肩膀,讚揚一下大家團隊合作的成果. 今年除了一些婦女會多年來的傳統活動, 如元宵節義賣, 拜訪老人院, Michigan veterans Foundation退伍軍人的”誰來晚餐”活動, 藝文活動,如繪畫, 烹飪等等以外, 我們也很榮幸的藉著各社團間的相互支援, 參與了偉恩郡州立大學的烹飪比賽, 底特律美術館(DIA)的中國新年文化推廣活動, Henry Ford醫院的健康講座, 以及Rainbow Connection 為病童兒健走募款活動. 更值得一提的是有幸參與青少棒啦啦隊士氣澎湃的陣容,在海外揮舞著自己國家的國旗是一件令人感到光榮及驕傲的事.
