Join Potluck Party with Mayor to Welcome the Guests from Taiwan National Sun Yat-Sen Un.
We have an opportunity to showcase the many wonderful talents and hearts of the Chinese community in the Olympia area.
Olympia Mayor Stephen Buxbaum is hosting a delegation from Taiwan’s National Sun Yat-sen University (NSTSU) Department of Marine Environment and Engineering. Because of our area’s unique marine environment (Olympia Oyster beds, Pacific Ocean inlets, etc.) this group is coming to learn more about it and Mayor Buxbaum wants to welcome them and let them see all the wonderful points of living in this centrally located part of the Pacific Northwest.
The delegation will be in the Greater Seattle area from September 2-11, 2014. During that time they will be in Olympia for two days, September 3rd – 4th. On September 3rd Evergreen State College President Les Purce will host the delegation for a dinner at Evergreen State College.
Mayor Buxbaum wishes to host the group on September 4th and wants the Olympia Area Chinese Fellowship (OACF) to co-host the event. The City of Olympia and Mayor Buxbaum will provide the venue: the Capital Museum Coach House main room. The OACF will provide a potluck of special Chinese dishes and desserts for the guests.
Besides members of our OACF, the event will include about 20 students and faculty from NSTSU. Attending the event will also be other special guests and VIPs including Michael Cade, Executive Director of the Thurston County Economic Development Council. In all we expect about 40-60 guests to be there.
During their visit, the group will meet with State and City officials, universities and Native American tribes; this includes the University of Washington, the Evergreen State College, St. Martin’s University, cities of Olympia and Seattle, Mt. Rainer and other famous sightseeing places in our unique region.
Our wonderful principal, Shyu Cheue-Lan, has volunteered to arrange the potluck. We hope you will participate and come to the event and bring a special dish you made to make a wonderful evening of tasty Chinese treats for the delegation from National Sun Yat-Sen University, our mayor, the executive director of the Thurston County Economic Development Council and other special guests.
PLEASE RSVP BY SEP 2ND BY SENDING EMAIL TO oacf_contact@OlympiaChinese.org.
With Warmest Regards,
Executive Board of the Olympia Area Chinese Fellowship
