On March 1, 2024, the Shoong Family Chinese Cultural Center celebrated its 71st anniversary, an occasion that was both a reflection on its past and a look towards its future. The event saw a significant turnout from community members, alumni, parents, and students, filling the Center’s auditorium to capacity and creating a festive atmosphere.

The celebration commenced with a welcoming speech from the President of the Board, Jones Wu, who expressed gratitude to all supporters. Speeches by distinguished guests, including Yongchang Zhu, Deputy Director of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in San Francisco, Board member Richard Cooc, and Captain Novosel from CHP then followed.  The speeches underscored the importance of the Center to the Asian community, and its long track record of developing youth and preserving Chinese language and culture.

The highlight of this evening was a variety of performances meticulously prepared by teachers and students.  It was a heartwarming performance by the young students enjoyed thoroughly by the parents and guests.  There was also an exciting raffle drawing which was the culmination of a raffle sale by students to raise funds for school operations.  The students demonstrated tremendous school spirit in uniting to achieve some outstanding results from the raffle sale.

The celebration then moved over to the Peony Seafood Restaurant where the Center held its Anniversary Dinner.  Attended by almost 200 guests, the Dinner provided an intimate setting for alumni, staff, Board members, parents, and students to assemble and celebrate the Center’s success over the past 7 decades.  It provided an opportunity for everyone to renew old acquaintances and meet new supporters for the Center.  As the evening drew to a close, it heralded the beginning of a new chapter for the SFCCC, with everyone looking forward to the future opportunities and challenges with confidence and anticipation.
