2010 Year of the Tiger!


Dear Supporter of Chinese New Year Festivals Past!

It is with regret that we have decided not to mount a Chinese New Year Festival in the spring of 2010. We have experienced a significant turnover in our Board, with many of the veterans moving on to other interests.

At this point, our decision affects 2010 only. We intend to take a year off, and test the waters again next year for 2011. We will let you know well in advance if we are able to resume the Festival.

We are very grateful for your loyal support over the last four years. The B.I. Chinese Connection could never have done it without you!
