Costume contest winners: Best – Fireman, Christopher Fu; Funniest – Unicorn, Alyson Lucas (17 months old); Scariest – White Ghost, Alex Lu; Original – Parrot, Alexander Fu.

Christmas Party was held on Saturday, Dec. 14 at Camarillo Heights
Elementary School. The Christmas Party was a success. An estimated 200
adults and children enjoyed the potluck supper and the night’s
entertainment. Thanks to Irene Sy and Lee-May Little for all their work on
the wonderful Nativity skit performed by the Chinese Language School. It
was a real treat to see the children so enthusiastically involved.
Bell Choir from the Camarillo United Methodist Church and the Adult Choir
from the Taiwanese Presbyterian Church was a great way to get us all in
the spirit of Christmas; they really added to the program with the
Christmas carols. The dance troupe under the direction of Yu-Ling Lu was
also a great success; we are so lucky to have so many talented people in
Claus was splendidly portrayed by Tim Fu of Camarillo. He was great and
the children all seemed to enjoy their Christmas gift of the DVD's donated
by the Technicolor Corp.
to the sponsors, Drs. Lisa and Albert Fu, and the help provided the Youth
Group led by Juliet Kong and Tiffany Chieu, and everyone who made the
celebration a success.

version of the China Alley Memorial Mural is being prepared for approval
by the City Council of Ventura. The artists, Mr. and Mrs. Qi Pang are from
the People’s Republic of China and are skilled in painting and
calligraphy. They also have considerable experience in creating large size
mural. We shall need volunteers to help with preparing the wall for their
painting. The location of the Memorial will be on the wall facing the
fountain near Santa Clara Street along the Figueroa walkway. We hope that
work can begin in February.
County Museum of History and Art would like to feature the history of the
Chinese in Ventura County in an exhibition at the Museum. This exhibit is
tentatively scheduled for Spring of 2004 and would last for 3 months. The
Museum’s Curator, Anne Graumlich, is seeking information and objects for
inclusion in the exhibit. Anyone with information or objects (photographs,
clothing, household pieces, etc.) is encouraged to call Ms. Graumlich at
805-653-0323, ext. 19, or send email to email@example.com.
Please call or email by May 1, 2003. The Ventura County Museum will
professionally display and protect all objects borrowed for the exhibit.
We need all the members of the VCCAA to support this project since this
will be the first time that we have an entire exhibit in the Museum be
devoted to the history of Chinese in this county. Please contact Ms.
Graumlich regarding any item you may lend the Museum for this exhibit.
