The Orange County Regional Group had a busy end to the Year of the Horse, with three popular events.
In September we introduced a new Chinese dance class in Irvine at DanceLova Dance Academy, taught by Artistic Director Ivy Chen. All eleven girls who participated enjoyed the lesson, and gave a short energetic performance for parents. We plan to offer another session like this in 2015.
Our annual Art Workshop moved to a new location in November, as it was held at Michael’s craft store in Tustin. Turnout was excellent for the two sessions of art instruction on the theme “sea life”. Parents were given the opportunity to order gifts, such as mugs, potholders, cards, etc., made from their children's artwork. Some moms sat down with the kids and created their own works of art!
Wrapping up the year as always was our potluck Holiday Party in December. The highlight of the evening was the second year of FCC’s Got Talent! The show incorporated stellar singing, dance and piano performances with impromptu group participation numbers. Also University High School China Care hosted a Craft Fair for China Care at the event and raised $77.50 from the sale of bracelets, bows, ornaments and other crafts hand made by the FCC kids.
A multitude of thanks are due to the small group of dedicated volunteers that made these special occasions possible and to everyone who contributed their time and talents.
These events create lasting memories and friendships for our children and the families that participate. Consider becoming more involved in this New Year, to help create additional activities and ensure the continuation of these annual events. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy Year of the Sheep!
