    Chinese New Year Celebrations

    By Lea Xu

    Vancouver, B.C. – The FCC- BC group hosted an event on Feb. 21 which was similar to FCC Lunar New Year Festivities around the world.  Click:  CNY Photos from around the world to get a peek at celebrations in different parts of the world.

    Our family traveled to Vancouver to celebrate Chinese New festivities with all the members of the FCC-BC group.  To mark the celebration, Lotus Travel made a prize available of $888 airline ticket voucher.   Pictured here on the left is Louie and the girls along with the lucky family who won the drawing for the airline ticket.    
    Another highlight of the event was an art auction to raise funds to support “Wade” who is an 11 year-old wheelchair bound young man who was able to begin school in 2014 for the very first time.   Louie met “Wade”, in late 2013 and learned of his dream to attend school. Since his school in China is not easily accessible, he is only permitted to attend if a nanny is there each school day to assist him.  (Detailed information at:  Wade schooling  )    If you would like to consider supporting funding for the remainder of the school year, please review information at www.packagesofhope.org   We trust your family has had a wonderful time celebrating with your FCC group and friends.

    Best wishes to all for a wonderful Year of the Sheep!
