Ethnic Celebration Event 2018

On March 10th, Olympia Area Chinese Association (OACA) participated in the Ethnic Celebration event located at Saint Martin's University. This is a very good opportunity to introduce OACA and our Chinese School to the public. During this day's event, we received 2 organizations' invitation to join their events.

This year, we provided 4 activities as we did last year:
1. writing Chinese names with Chinese Calligraphy
2. chopsticks challenge of picking up candy
3. stamping Chinese Zodiac signs on "passport" cards and name slips
4. learning and practicing to write Chinese number characters with brushes and water

Besides those activities, we also presented 5 performances this year. It is our first time demonstrating our talents. Even though we were arranged at the very beginning of this event, our programs did give the audience and the lead staff of City Lacey (the primary sponsor) a very good impression.

One of our performances is published on page 3 of The Olympian News. Some video clips about us taken by The Olympian can be watched here.
