Recent News Reports

Dear FWCFFA members, families and friends,

As the new FWCFFA President this year, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for all of your trust for putting me in this position. The last couple of years, I have been engaging in my formal job as the Executive Assistant to the President/CEO with one of the largest government funded non-profit organizations in Northeast Indiana. I have learned a lot during this time, and I continue to gain valuable experience on how to make a non-profit better and stronger. I am very proud of my work, and I am very proud of what I am doing every single day to help others.

I hope that my experiences and qualifications will bring new perspectives to our Chinese Association. We are so far away from our hometown, and we all moved thousands of miles away from the place we love the most. It is not possible for us to turn back anymore in life. However, we could come together, help each other, and love each other, so we will build this place into our new “LOVE HOMETOWN”.

Right now, the officer team has been busy preparing for all the performances for the upcoming New Year Party which will be held on 2/7/2016, Sunday, at IPFW Ballroom, Fort Wayne.
We have prepared a couple of performances for everyone, and we would love to invite you to join us for all the fun activities.
1. Taijisword (太极剑),directed by Mr. duan;
2. Chinese Dress Dance (旗袍舞), directed by me.
Our first practice will be held on this coming Saturday, 11/14/2015, from 2:00p.m. - 4:00 p.m. And we might continue to hold practices at the same time every Saturday afternoon until we are ready for the performance.
Taijisword (太极剑) is really good for your health and it generates the spirit of the Chinese history. Even if you do not wish to perform in New Year Party, you are still warmly welcomed to join us at practice for fun.

Please respond with your name, the practice you wish to join, or any other performances that you would love to show us in New Year Party to Menglan Li, Limenglan93@gmail.com. Since our mission is to promote Chinese culture and festival only, we would appreciate your performance are not politics or religions related.
Also, we strongly encourage you to download “Wechat” app to your phone, which is the major communication method we are using right now. Please add me cocopurdue to your contact list. Once I receive your friend request, I will add you to our Fort Wayne Chinese Group, which consists of over 100 members right now.

We look forward your participation, and I believe with our effort, we will have a fantastic New Year Party together!
