大家好!

距橙郡华人协会春节晚会只有三个星期了。 从餐厅的布置, 节目的选排到拉广告赞助, 一切准备工作, 都在紧张有序地进行中。 许多朋友为此付出了很多宝贵的时间。 目的只有一个, 就是希望在二月九号的除夕之夜, 让我们这些身在他乡的游子们能够过上一个有着浓厚中国味的新年。 您的支持, 就是对我们工作的最大鼓励。 希望您能在一月三十日以前, 为我们提供如下信息:
1) 您是否参加此次晚会
2) 参加人数
3) 所带佳肴名称
谢谢!
鲁平
Hi everyone,
We are quickly approaching our annual Chinese New Year celebration on February 9th! The OCCA Board members, OCCS teachers, parents, and students, have spent a lot of time and effort preparing, from getting cafeteria decorations, creating and practicing the program, to working with individuals and businesses for advertisements and donations, etc. Our goal is to create a special night that all of us will enjoy to celebrate the most important time of year in the Chinese culture. We cannot achieve it alone; your support is vital for our success. Your participation is the best support and encouragement for our work.
Please provide us the following information before Jan 30, 2013:
1) Are you attending? Please answer yes or no
2) If yes, how many attendees?
3) Please state what dish you are bringing
Thank you,
OCCA President,
Ping Lu

 

*********************************************

OCCA President
 
Hi everyone,
After careful consideration, we believe it would be best for the potluck party to start at 4:00 PM then hold our annual New Year Celebration Party at 6:30 PM on February 9th. We will have a raffle ticket drawing right after the show. Here is the rough schedule for the celebration:
4:00 ~ 6:00 Potluck / Social event
6:30 ~ 8:30 Chinese New Year Celebration
8:30 ~ 9:30 Raffle ticket drawing
9:30 ~ 12:00 am More celebration in cafeteria – poker game, karaoke, dance, chess
Additionally, I would appreciate if everyone could donate a wrapped gift for the raffle! It can be a small gift or anything you find in your house, and there will be more winners. :-) Please drop off wrapped gifts this Saturday (1/12), next Saturday (1/19) during rehearsal!
Thank you very much for all your time and effort so far. The big day is coming up!
Ping Lu

Defensive Driving

By popular demand and for the benefits of our OCCA members, our Association is now partnered with the American Safety Council to offer the 6 hour defensive driving course online.  You may take the course in the comfort of your own home.  You do not have to complete the course in one sitting.  You may log out and then pick up where you left off. 

The listed price is $34.50, but we were able to get a discounted price of $21.00 for our members.  In addition to saving 10% on your car insurance, the course also removes up to 4 points from your license. 

Please follow the link below to register and pay for the course.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  Enjoy!

Dear All OCCA members,

A quick update of today's OCCA Donation event for Sichuan Earthquake Victims:

First of all, I would like to thank you for your showing-up and your generous support, which once again, like support of 911 victims, demonstrates the passion and strength of our community. 

The outcome of today's event is magnificent and fruitful, from 9:30AM to 13:30 PM, just three hours, a total of $4576.00 monetary donations were collected plus employer's gift-matching $500 to be received. These are totaled about $5076.00.

OCCA board decided to make additional matching donation of about $1000.00 in such to make total monetary donation of $6,000.00 to the earthquake victims. OCCA issues a check of $6000.00 payable to Chinese Consulate General in New York for Earthquake Relief Donation. On Monday May 19, the check will be handed in to the Consul of Chinese Consulate General in New York by one of our OCCA member Mr. Zhu, who will be applying his Visa to China on Monday. A formal receipt of earthquake relief donation is expected to receive and I will keep you posted on this. 

Special thanks to the students in Chinese School who donated their allowances from few dollars to tens as they want to show their cares and sympathy to the students in the earthquake area. Also the thanks to Orange County School of Dancing who donates $100. Heung/Xiangyu Cheng (New York Buffet) donate $1000, Lu Ping/Eunice Yun donate $500, Jinlin Du/Yujuan Zhao donate $500, Jimmy Cheung/Yul Chen donate $300?and there are more on the list. 

For the OCCA issued receipts, please ask if any gift-matching program you can be entitled to and OCCA will facilitate the requirement if this is doable in your case.

If, for some reason, you could not make today appearance and would like to make a contributuion, please do let us know and we will add them up to the total.

All are appreciated deeply and we wish our effort can make little contribution to the earthquake victims.

Dongzhou J. Liu
