SEATTLE CHINESE COMMUNITY GIRLS DRILL TEAM 60TH ANNIVERSARY


The Chinese Community Girls Drill Team was

the idea of Ruby Chow and a girl’s group called the Chi-ettes. The Chi-ettes had been impressed by a performance by the St. Mary’s Drum and Bell Team based in San Francisco. Ruby convinced the Chong Wa Benevolent Association to sponsor a community Drill Team, and in the Fall of 1952, the Seattle Chinese Community Girls Drill Team was born. In 1971, The Chinese Parents Service Organization (CPSO) was chartered as a corporation under the provisions of the Washington State Non-Profit Corporation Act. Its purpose is to raise funds and assist the Drill Team director in planning and implementing the activities of the Drill Team.

Our Special Members and Association Ruby Chow started the Drill Team in 1952. She also spearheaded many

fundraising campaigns to purchase four sets of uniforms, three Drill Team buses, and the donation of a Drill Team van. She arranged two trips to Taiwan for the team. As director from 1952–1965 she will always be remembered as a “tough lady with a heart of gold and RUBY RED LIPS!”

Ping Chow helped balance out the hundreds of sandwiches with great

chow mein and fried rice. He also got his Chinese opera friends to perform with him to raise funds for uniforms and a bus. The team effort of this couple laid a solid foundation for the community team and eventual parent and volunteer support group.

Art Lum’s involvement with the Drill Team began in the mid-60s as a

parent. Due to his enthusiasm and devotion to the Drill Team, he became the Drill Team’s director in 1980. He also served as CPSO president for more than 20 years. Under his leadership, funds were raised for the team to travel abroad, to the East Coast and Southern California. He spearheaded sales of the Drill Team’s famous “Flavors of China” cookbook. He played a major role in the purchase of a van, bus and the latest set of uniforms. He also assisted in establishing the annual Lin Lee Memorial Scholarship, awarded since 1980.

Cheryl Chow started her career with the Drill Team at age 6 as the official team mascot. In her tenure she was a banner girl, drummer, marcher, and captain. After her marching days Cheryl did a short stint as director/instructor and has been the team’s lead instructor since 1970. When Uncle Art stepped down as CPSO President in 2008, Cheryl added CPSO President to her Drill Team resume.

She has also created opportunities and activities for girls to promote leadership skills, communication and discussion sessions among the girls. Slumber parties for the girls are also combined with bowling and afternoons at Wild Waves and other friendship building activities. The successes of our 60th Anniversary are a result of Cheryl’s leadership and love of our Drill Team. 2


The Chong Wa Benevolent Association was established in

Seattle in the early 1900s to provide a unified voice for Chinese Americans in Washington State. The purposes of the Association are to promote Chinese culture and general welfare within the community. In 1929 the current Chong Wa building at 7th and Weller was built and is listed in the national register of historical buildings. Chong Wa opened the first weekday Chinese School in Washington State and is the only one today. Prior to 1952 Chong Wa would invite a dragon team and marching groups from other cities to perform in celebrations. In 1952 Ruby Chow worked with Chong Wa to establish our own dragon team and Drill Team. For many years Chong Wa sponsored the Drill Team and the Team shared the Chinese School bus. Chong Wa continues to sponsor the Chinatown Dragon Team and Chong Wa continues to be the home of the Drill Team.

The Chi-ettes, 1952

“Without the banners the marchers could not go out, without the marchers the drummers could not go out, without the drummers the officers could not go out...WE MUST WORK TOGETHER AS A TEAM!!” “No boyfriends allowed!” “Get your hair out of your eyes!”

An original headdress still survives 60 years later. Classic quotes – Auntie Ruby 4


Standing the test of time. The idea of forming a

Seattle-based Drill Team from the Chi-ettes group was a good idea back in 1952 and continues to be a source of pride for our community as we celebrate our 60th year. Perhaps no other person had contributed as much to the goals and ideals of the Drill Team as Ruby Chow — Auntie Ruby to scores of Chinese community youths in the formative years of the team. She had been godmother, disciplinarian, Ann Landers, source of inspiration, chief cook and bottle washer to all who had passed through the rank and file.

H

er dedication to what Drill Team has meant and continues to represent for the community is immeasurable. Along with Auntie Ruby, Uncle Ping Chow had contributed much to the making of the Drill Team. Whether making deliveries, chauffeuring squads of girls or just providing moral support, he always had a cheery “Hi, Hon-ey!” for all the members of the Drill Team.

2012

During her years as Drill Team Director, Auntie Ruby set and maintained high standards — demanding the best from everyone. She set the example herself by selflessly donating her time and whatever else the team needed. Even during a vacation to Hawaii, “the girls” were not forgotten. Each received a fragrant lei of orchids upon her return.

Auntie Ruby will always be remembered for her generosity and dedication to the welfare of the youth of Seattle’s Chinese Community. Her spirit lives on as we look forward to many more years to come.

The modern headdress has evolved over the years while still retaining the overall artistic pageantry. 5

S

an Francisco had one. Victoria had one. Why couldn’t Seattle have one, too? In 1951, twentyfive Chinese American girls from Garfield High School organized a social club and called themselves the Chi-ettes. The purpose of the club was discussed at their first meeting: What could this group do for the community? Some of the girls had seen or heard of the San Francisco and Victoria Chinese Girls Drill Teams and asked, “Why can’t we represent our community through a Drill Team?”

They turned to Ruby Chow, a well-known Chinese American leader with formidable fundraising skills. She was the logical person to ask for help in establishing this Drill Team. Ruby had also thought of a Seattle Chinese Community Girls Drill Team and asked Ted Yerabek, a member of Seattle’s renowned Police Drill Team, to teach police drills to the girls. The Chong Wa Benevolent Association, lead organization of the Chinese community, thought if Ruby wanted it, she should be in charge of it. Girls outside the Chi-ettes were recruited, and the rest is history. Sixty unbroken years later, the Drill Team is still going strong. The first ten years were the establishment years: • Establishment of the girls as a team • Establishment of the corps of team volunteers • Establishment of traditions — toilet duty, red lipstick and no boyfriends hanging around In short order, Auntie Ruby secured Chong Wa’s sponsorship for the team. Through husband Ping’s Cantonese opera connections, she had beautifully sequined, red satin uniforms designed and made in Hong Kong. Seattle was wowed by the team during their first parades in the summer of 1952. Long and loud applause, cheers and whistles greeted the girls at every parade. The Drill Team began its large collection of trophies — often winning the grand prize at consecutive parades. 6

The revered Triangle Formation was only done in the ‘50s.

The Drill Team uniform is based on the Chinese opera woman warrior costume. The color red was chosen as this is the traditional color of luck and happiness. In 1952, the first set of uniforms cost $40.00 each. 1952 Drill Team debut at Chong Wa.

ff stage, this group of teenage girls was typical. Some of them were studious, some athletic, some shy, some outgoing and some naughty. Drill Team girls have gone on to become elected officials, respected professionals and national beauty queens. Then there was the girl who threw her used drill shoes at Auntie Ruby and quit in a huff the first year. And the girl who quietly stepped over Auntie Ruby’s sleeping body to sneak out on a date during an out-of-town trip. And the girl who

knew all the steps and out-danced the Portland kid who challenged her. Memorable highlights of the first ten years: establishment of the team itself; national recognition through the “You Asked For It” television show, a feature spread in LIFE Magazine during the 1955-56 season; summer out-of-town trips with no air conditioning, and the pride of performing well at parades. The first ten years truly began something wonderful. Performance at the Torchlight parade.

Wing-tip eyeglasses and pale pink with white outline lipstick were the fashion rage. 10

The 1960s ushered in a new headdress style made with woven flower clusters that served them well into the 1970s.

The Drill Team preparing for their signature salute or “gin-lai,” is Cantonese for “meeting with respect.” It was the brainchild of Coleman Mar, Auntie Ruby’s youngest brother. The idea was run by Uncle Ping who said that a proper gin-lai had to be done three times. Ted Yerabek worked out the logistics. When the first gin-lai debuted, the judges and crowd went wild.

Precision Marching into the ‘70s

We were on the move through the 1970s. The team hit a gold mine of major trips during the 1970s. The decade included two unforgettable trips to Taiwan in 1972 and 1978.

T

he government of the Republic of China extended an invitation to the Girls Drill Team to participate in the inauguration ceremonies of President Chiang Kai-shek on May 20, 1972 as special guests during the team’s visit in Taiwan. It was an opportunity for the girls to proudly represent all the Chinese communities in the United States as ambassadors of good will. A trip highlight: The girls were invited for tea at the Summer Palace with President and Madame Chiang Kai-shek, 1972. The Taiwan group consisted of 60 members of the Drill Team, ten chaperones, delegates of the Chinese Parents Service Organization and Chong Wa, 1972.

of uniforms. A solid core of dedicated girls devoted their summers to hours of practice. In addition to the Taiwan trips, they were rewarded with trips to Disneyland and other places in California in 1973 and 1977.

T

he drummers kept the team marching into the 1970s. The traditional Chinese bass drum provided the left beat. Brass cymbals were added to provide contrast and further stylized the marching sound and look. Most can still remember the beat. The sound was heard at the World Expo in Spokane and echoed at the Grand Opening of the Kingdome. This famous beat can be heard in the Hollywood movie The Parallax View, starring Warren Beatty and Paula Prentiss. The beat continued into the 25th anniversary celebration in 1977.

The 1980s sent the Drill Team across the United States to Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia to celebrate the Fourth of July. It was a pleasure to accept such special invitations.

T

hrough the 1980s, tradition continued as the daughters of former drill team members joined the team. Members past and present, families and friends celebrated the 35th anniversary in 1987 in grand style. During the ‘80s, the Drill Team’s competition with other modern day activities increased. It was difficult at times to perform with the standard eight squads, and sometimes only six went out. During this time old favorites like Greek Cross to the Left and Serpentine had to be put on the shelf. However, the girls added Files to the Rear to their repertoire and the perseverance of the team paid off with numerous first place trophies and acknowledgements. Dazzled audiences cheered at local events

Despite smaller squads the Drill Team remained fierce competitors and brought home many trophies during the ‘80s.

and parades as well as at the Portland Rose Festival and the Omak Stampede. The unit marched at special events such as the Ruby Chow Park dedication in 1987. During the ‘80s a new tradition began. Traditional Chinese dancing was added to the end of the marching season. Dancing allowed the girls to learn about and share the Chinese culture. The graceful moves and light steps became the Ying to the Yang of our serious military marching style. Each year the girls pass down a dance to the younger group. By the time they graduate they have learned eight different dances.


The Drill Team took to the water to compete in the Bon Marche’s Orient Expressed Dragon Boat Race. We had an advantage with our own skilled drummer beating out the stroke rhythm.

Although the experiences encountered may not have seemed funny at the time, memories have a way of adding humor to the unexpected.

Count Off: The ‘00s: Reflection on the Past Entering a fifth decade and a new millennium,

the Drill Team welcomed a new generation, the third, in a long tradition of “women warriors.” Typical of previous decades, fundraising continued for a new set of uniforms, bus and van.

T

he days of carwashes and roller skating parties are long gone. The girls raised funds by performing Chinese dances, selling chocolate bars and hosting “Oodles of Noodles.” 

Gently teased by old timers who remember reporting at 8 a.m. to noon practices, traveling by creaky Drill Team bus, sleeping on gym floors and eating mounds of bare baloney sandwiches for days on end, the golden anniversary team traveled to California by plane and stayed in a hotel. The informal tradition of telling rookies, “When I was in Drill Team...” firmly ensconced itself. Over the years the phone tree evolved to email and texts and the Drill Team’s Facebook page emerged in 2009. In addition to double tying shoes and getting rid of chewing gum, the start of practice now includes turning off cell phones and a single gin-lai. Having awed audiences with ribbon and fan dances now for nearly 30 years, with the sixth set of marching uniforms in 2009 came the Drill Team’s own beautiful dance costumes.

T

hose who choose to join the Drill Team earn kudos for wanting to learn about the Chinese culture and for stepping forward to undergo the training and discipline required to represent the community as part of a precision marching unit. Gone are the days of the intense pre-judged parades, but the team’s desire to “wow” the world drives the dedication and hard work required to perfect the details that differentiate between mediocre and sharp. To balance out the seriousness, the girls look forward to Drill Team Camp, swimming parties and continuing the tradition of a Disneyland trip every four years. Greenwood Parade, 2011.

We are proud of the fact that today’s team is 70 girls strong. While some things have changed over the years, more remains the same. The Drill Team continues to reinforce the values taught at home. Recent alumni mentor the high school girls providing college and scholarship application workshops. The team continues to support community organizations by performing at events, helping with fund raising activities including Memorial Day at Hing Hay Park and visits to Kin On Nursing Home. In 2010 the Drill Team was awarded the Community Service Award by the Organization of Chinese Americans.

The team will return from a trip to Victoria, B.C. to perform at the Pacific Tattoo in celebration of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee just in time for the 60th Anniversary celebration. It’s a mouthful, but in addition to adding two new drills: odd squads fours right and left double-double wheel! and odd squads fours right and left gin-lai, in honor of the 60th anniversary and the year of the dragon, the team showcases the 6th set of uniforms, a new style of drill shoe and a golden dragon drum cart. For the first time in Drill Team history, alumni will return to march, joining the current team and mascots in the 2012 Chinatown Parade! The original 1952 team will be close by and honored for the legacy they began. With a fresh new look and some new moves, we hope you can see the pride and the dedication that truly makes us unique. Learning from those before us and creating for those to come, we will continue the sisterhood, share adventures, and provide the support that will keep what was a dream in 1952, a reality for years to come.

Special Awards Inspiration Award

The inspiration award was established in 1974 in memory of Margie Wah, a Drill Team member whose life ended prematurely. Each year, Drill Team members vote for the girl who best exemplifies the qualities that Margie demonstrated: caring, commitment, and selflessness. Each honoree is presented with an individual plaque with her name on it. 1974 1975 1976 1977 1978 1979 1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985

Lin Lee Scholarship

Established in 1979, this scholarship is in memory of Lin Lee. Lin was a Drill Team member from 1955-1957. Upon her death, her sister-in-law, Gloria Lum Lee, suggested to Lin’s husband that a fitting tribute to her achievements would be to establish a memorial scholarship fund for a Drill Team senior. After a few months of arrangements, the fund was established in September 1979. The first scholarship was awarded in December 1980 and is awarded during the years the team has graduating high school seniors. 1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985 1986 1987 1989 1990

Art Lum Scholarship

In 2012, we will award the first Art Lum Scholarship. Art Lum’s family has established this scholarship in honor of Uncle Art’s dedication and devotion to the Drill Team for over fifty years. 33


Mothers & Daughters: Going Full Circle The tradition marches on. The continuity, excellence

and tradition of the Drill Team are due largely in part to the remarkable number of second and even third generation members. Former members value the skills they have learned from being part of the team and have encouraged their own daughters to join. We salute you!
