Chinese-American hoop star is inspiring locals Jeremy Lin’s unlikely success in Big Apple hasn’t gone unnoticed here by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Jeremy Lin’s quick rise to stardom has taken China by storm—and caught the attention of plenty of basketball fans in Richmond. The first U.S.-born NBA player of ethnic-Chinese heritage helped lead the New York Knicks to five straight victories ahead of last night’s game in Toronto against the Raptors. “I just said Jeremy Lin’s name in practice and they all started smiling. Not just the Asian kids, but all the kids. It’s a story that resonates with kids out here because it makes it more believable that they can play and do big things in the game,” said Pasha Bains, one of the founders of Drive Basketball academy at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Lin, 23, is an unlikely star after going undrafted and, when finally reaching the big leagues, was dumped by two teams before New York gave him a shot. In his first four games with the team, he scored 109 points. Bains, a former Richmond High Colt, said Lin is inspiring young players here, not just for his play, but his attitude. “He plays with a smile on his face. He’s brought the smile back to the game, where you see a lot of posturing and almost bullying attitude showing a lot of times,” said Bains. “For a guy who’s the underdog, he believes in himself.” Larry Weiss of Collectors Den in Lansd-

owne Centre sold his last piece of Jeremy Lin merchandise—a rookie card—last week. Although his cards are popular, Weiss doesn’t stock much in NBA apparel. But no retailers would have been prepared for Lin’s unlikely success. “I just talked to a friend who just got back from New York and he said every printing press that does T-shirts, jerseys or what-have-you is going day and night in New York to get stuff out there,” said Weiss. Reports suggest people in China are hosting viewing parties of Knicks games, while state TV adjusted its schedule to broadcast New York’s win over Minnesota Sunday. In Toronto, which hosted the Knicks last night, the Canadian Chinese Youth Athletics Association was offering discounted tickets to members to “Catch the Linsanity.” Lin’s name is even being talked about in churches, as the basketball star has been open about his faith and his favourite passage in the Bible. Albert Wu, pastor at Revere church in Richmond, said the passage notes there are times when suffering leads to a greater joy or builds character. “I think this is something a professional athlete knows innately. That suffering through practices, and training, and early mornings is the only way they can grow and develop. The same often goes for suffering in life as well. For the Christian this is central to the faith.” Wu said his social media networks have been buzzing about “JLin,” and at least one member of his congregation has already ordered a jersey. Said Wu: “Someone asked me on Sunday if I think it’s going to last. I think I echo the sentiments of many in the congregation when I said, ‘I hope his character lasts.’ His humility, character, faith and passion is definitely inspiring.”

Contest urges weddings to go shark-free Sharks being driven to extinction, ‘Chinese consumer’ among those to blame, says Shark Truth founder by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter A contest aimed at getting shark fin off wedding reception menus launched Valentine’s Day. Shark Truth began accepting applications Feb. 14 from Canadian couples of partial or full Chinese descent who pledge to not serve shark fin soup at their wedding reception. Happy Hearts Love Sharks is an annual contest organized by the three-year-old non-profit group. Applicants will make their pledge online, and public voting—which opens on World Oceans Day June 8—will decide the winner. Shark fin soup is a Chinese delicacy that is commonly served at wedding receptions as a symbol of status and respect. But according to Shark Truth founder Claudia Li, it’s also leading to the “mass decimation” of sharks. In a recent posting on the Shark Truth website, Li said 73 million sharks are poached for their fins each year—a rate that could drive 25 species to extinction this century. “The Chinese consumer is one of the many culprits in this cause, and it is indeed up to us to change some of our customs...” wrote Li.

“Some businesses argue that the shark fin they import is being imported legally and they’re not doing anything wrong. This is exactly the problem: the legislation that exists in fisheries management today to protect sharks is limited in quantity and in power to enforce. “This is why we need to start from the demand-side of the equation.” A six-day cruise to the Galapagos Islands will be awarded to the winning couple in the Happy Hearts Love Sharks contest. The islands are known as one of the top diving and snorkeling destinations in the world, where encounters with hammerhead sharks and whale sharks are common. With 65 couples previously pledging to protect sharks through the contest, that translated to 9,500 bowls of shark fin soup not served at those wedding receptions, according to Shark Truth. For couples to qualify for the contest’s latest edition, the wedding date must be between April 2011 and December 2012. The winner will be announced at the end of July. Couples can apply to the contest at happy heartslovesharks.org.

Capacity issues projected at two high schools Sea Island should be considered for closure: Colliers study by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter All is going according to plan in Downtown Richmond, according to the latest Statistics Canada census data released last week. But the future doesn’t look nearly so prosperous for Sea Island elementary, which a new study suggests should be considered for closure. The majority of the growth seen in the city since the 2006 census was focused in a handful of areas, including the city centre, which saw more than a 17.7-per-cent increase to its population. Both West Cambie and South Arm saw more than 11.8-per-cent growth, higher than the 9.2 per cent recorded for the city as a whole. Those numbers are in line with the results of a Colliers International study for the Richmond School District, which indicates serious challenges lie ahead for Richmond High and A.R. MacNeill secondary. By 2025, Richmond High will need space for an additional 907 students, if growth rates follow current projections. The school’s current capacity is 1,200 students. The challenges for MacNeill aren’t as severe, but the No. 4 Road school will need to find spaces for 321 additional students over the next 13 years, according to the Colliers study. R.A. McMath will need an additional 191 seats over that same timeframe.

Google Maps photo Only three dozen students are expected at Sea Island elementary by 2025, some 179 below school capacity.

To deal with the projected growth of students living in Downtown Richmond, Colliers International study notes that an emerging trend is building a school at the base of a highrise. The Urban Institute predict’s the city centre population will increase by nearly 54,000 people between 2009 and 2041. In other parts of the community, there are high schools that will be seriously under capacity by 2025. Cambie will have 272 empty classroom spaces, Palmer with 336, McNair with 257 and Steveston-London with 212. At the elementary school level, the biggest challenges will also be at those schools closest to the city core, with Brighouse and Cook

both projected to be around 300 students over capacity. Considerably under capacity by 2025 will be Diefenbaker, Errington, Gilmore, Grauer, Lee and Ferris elementary schools. Only three dozen students are expected at Sea Island elementary by 2025, some 179 below school capacity. According to the Colliers study, Sea Island should be considered for closure, while the sites for the former Kilgour and Rideau elementary and Steveston secondary should remain closed and be considered for disposition. Planning should begin for the relocation of the school district’s works yard on River Road, the study advises.

Man with $51,000 in pockets gets new trial A man originally acquitted after being caught with $51,000 in his pockets prior to an Air Canada flight to London, has been ordered to stand trial again after his acquittal was set aside by the B.C. Supreme Court. Muhammad Iliyas Sajid was pulled aside by a Canada Border Service Agency officer who was examining departing passengers for currency prior to a Nov. 19, 2009 Air Canada flight to London. The officer stopped Sajid after he had checked in at the gate but before he walked down the ramp to the departing plane. When the officer advised Sajid about the obligation to report more than $10,000 in currency, Sajid “immediately acknowledged he had to report and claimed to have $10,000 or $11,000 in his possession,” according to a court ruling. “Seeing indications of discomfort when he questioned Mr. Sajid further, (the officer) asked him to remove his coat, and checked the pockets,” the B.C. Supreme Court judgement released late last week. Sajid was found to be carrying $51,380 in Canadian currency. But a Richmond provincial court judge dismissed the case last April. “I could not convict on this evidence. The accused is charged for failing to report. He has not been charged with failing to truthfully answer.” The provincial court judge found the legislation was “fraught with difficulties and fraught with dangers,” and noted that while the Proceeds of Crime and Terrorist Financing Act requires self reporting “yet there is not a facility to report in what you would consider to be a reasonable fashion.” But in setting aside the acquittal, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Peter M. Willcock found the trial judge erred in ruling there was insufficient evidence to establish Sajid knowingly failed to report the exportation of currency. —by Martin van den Hemel

Charges recommended against Richmond man accused of rioting by Jeff Nagel Black Press Charges are being urged against another 25 suspected rioters for violent acts during the mayhem downtown that followed the Vancouver Canucks’ defeat in last June’s Stanley Cup ďŹ nal. The additional 70 charges recommended by Vancouver Police must still be approved by prosecutors. The VPD have now sought charges against a total of 125 accused rioters and 47 have actually been charged so far. One recommendation was rejected by Crown while the rest are under review.

“These are all serious criminal offences,â€? Insp. Les Yeo said of the latest ďŹ les forwarded to prosecutors. In each case, he said, the suspected rioters either destroyed property, looted businesses, started ďŹ res or assaulted innocent bystanders. “This is not about those who stood around and watched the riot,â€? Yeo said. More than 80 per cent of the suspects for whom charges are recommended are from outside Vancouver. The 25 latest suspects police want charged include an 18-year-

old from Richmond who tried to smash the windows of a police car before helping others to ip it. A 23-year-old from Surrey is also facing charges in the swarming assault of Robert Mackay, a Vancouver man who was badly beaten after trying to keep looters from entering a store. Three of six suspects who attacked Mackay, who is a sous chef at Tramonto Restaurant at River Rock, have now been identiďŹ ed, Yeo said. Three more people turned themselves in to police after their images were displayed on a revamped VPD riot website (riot2011.vpd.ca) launched last month.

Albion Fisheries to build fish processing plant in Richmond No. 6 Road facility will replace fish processing plant in Vancouver by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter Albion Fisheries will relocate its Metro Vancouver fish processing plant to Richmond by January 2013, the firm’s president said Tuesday. “We are the leading seafood distributor in Western Canada and we’re looking to grow that position and move to a state-of-the-art facility in a fishing community,” said John Milobar at a

groundbreaking ceremony yesterday morning. Hungerford Properties is building a 6 5 , 3 0 0 - s q u a re - f o o t plant for Albion at 1700 No. 6 Rd. Construction is scheduled to be complete by October, and Albion will move its operations and 150 employees

from its longtime home on Great Northern Way in Vancouver. Milobar said the Vancouver facility has reached the end of its life. He noted the new plant will allow Albion to grow its sustainable seafood options. “Most people don’t re-

alize how much farmed seafood is out there, and now we’re looking to add sustainable farmed options out there to our customers,” he said. The Richmond building has been designed to include a modern storm water management system, a thermoplastic roof and permeable paving. Mayor Malcolm Brodie said yesterday Albion and Richmond is an ideal match. “Seafood processing has always been a part of our city as has our fishing industry in general,” he said. “In terms of the economy in Richmond, fishing and fish processing is really part of our DNA.”

EDITORIAL: Focus on the real problems of the court system

A

s a sentencing hearing continues for the first convicted rioter, the B.C. government has backed away from its plan to seek video coverage of prosecutions from last year’s Stanley Cup riot. Vancouver Police and Crown counsel had been under a lot pressure to charge rioters from the June 15 downtown debacle. It took until Oct. 31 before the first charges were recommended. Forty-seven people have so far been charged with riot-related charges and Vancouver Police have requested charges against nearly 80 more. The Liberal government has presided over the closure of court houses and a shortage of judges and sheriffs over the past decade. This has lead to a situation where trials are delayed and some accused crooks have had their cases thrown out of court due to excessive delays. With that background in mind, the public has to be worried whether the justice system can handle all the riot cases. And the provincial government made things worse by wanting to televise riot trials. Opposed by Crown, but insisted upon by the Liberals, the Riot TV push was just a time-wasting

ichmond may have an abundance of farmland but it isn’t always easy for new farmers to access this land.

To address this, the Richmond Food Security Society is hosting an evening talk at Terra Nova Rural Park on Thursday, Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. with local farmer Bill Zylmans on how to access land and develop lease agreements that are fair. The event is free and open to the public. As more people look to food production as a new or second career, many are coming to Richmond from areas like Vancouver or Burnaby where there is little to no farmland available. There seems to be a plethora of land in Richmond either sitting idle

BILL ZYLMANS or underutilized. It would be wonderful to see more of that converted into production.

Spurring on the Society is a waitlist of new farmers from Vancouver who are looking for small plots, from about half anacre to two acres. Many have either been farming at the backyard level or have never farmed before. But before landowners think that this might be a cash cow for them, Bill’s talk might be an eye opener. I often get land owners wanting to lease land to cover their mortgage expenses. What they need to understand is that agricultural leases generally go for no more than $300 per acre per year. If they are charging more,

there needs to be fencing, irrigation water readily available, and possibly a roadside stand. The talk is open to the public and is free of charge but participants do need to register online at leasingland.eventbrite.com. For more information about the talk, interested individuals can refer to the Richmond Food Security Society’s website at www.richmondfoodsecurity.org or call (604) 727 9728.

letters Editor: Global connectivity drives success and airlines drive global connectivity. Aviation contributes $33.3 billion to Canada’s GDP and supports 401,000 jobs. As Canada’s second busiest airport, Vancouver International plays a key role in delivering this value, supporting more than 23,000 direct jobs and generating $1.9 billion in GDP. Aircraft can’t fly without fuel, however, and YVR’s sole pipeline is no longer able to meet the airport’s fuel requirements. As a result airlines also have to rely on a lengthy and carbon-intensive second source: tanker truck deliveries from the Cherry Point Refinery in Washington State. This 140-kilometre round-trip journey occurs 33 times each day on average. A disruption to either fuel source will be bad news for the people and businesses that depend on air service at YVR. And it’s only going to get worse. Absent a better solution, it is estimated that within 20

2005. The new fuel delivery project is aligned with this vision. We are confident that the environmental review process will confirm that it is an economical and environmentallysustainable, long-term solution to YVR’s fuel requirements. This in turn will enable aviation to continue to make a vital contribution to the economic success of the region and all Canada. Douglas Lavin Regional Vice-President North America International Air Transport Association

confirmed that VAFFC’s chosen option was the best when environmental, socio-economic, First Nations, operations and economic factors are considered together. The aviation community takes its environmental responsibilities to heart. Ours is the only industrial sector to voluntary adopt a program to address our two-per-cent share of global carbon emissions, including capping net carbon emissions from 2020 and cutting net emissions in half by 2050 compared to

years, 100 tankers will make that trip daily, despite anticipated double-digit improvements in airline fuel efficiency over the period. The Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation, a not-for-profit consortium owned by airlines operating at YVR, is proposing a new aviation fuel delivery system that will be able to meet the airport’s existing and future fuel needs safely and economically and with a smaller environmental footprint than today. VAFFC evaluated 14 different options based on the potential economic, environmental, regulatory and social impacts before developing its proposal that includes an upgraded marine terminal and new fuel receiving facility in Richmond at existing industrial sites along the South Arm of the Fraser River, connected to YVR by a 15 kilometre underground pipeline. VAFFC has demonstrated a willingness to address community concerns, agreeing, for example, to look at Highway 99 as a potential pipeline route at the request of Richmond council. VAFFC also commissioned an independent and transparent comparative analysis of four main potential jet fuel delivery alternatives for YVR. The study

Editor: Re: “Planes need fuel to y,â€? Letters, Feb. 8. Supporters of the proposed Vancouver Airport Jet Fuel Delivery System are now suggesting that being opposed to the current proposal equates to being opposed to airport growth. This suggestion misses the point. The City of Richmond understands the airport’s need for ample fuel to support its operations and future growth. But there are ways to achieve this goal without endangering the sensitive environment of the Fraser River estuary or creating undue safety risks for our community. The Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation supposedly weighed all the options and selected their favourite. That doesn’t mean it’s best for the environment or our community. VAFFC has consistently refused to have an adequate review of all of the options. They insist on pushing forward with a proposal that Richmond city council and most of our community have repeatedly said is unacceptable. Richmond is supposed to support the current pipeline proposal because it is good for business. Why won’t VAFFC pay the millions of dollars of extra ďŹ re emergency costs that will be needed for the city to ensure adequate ďŹ re protection? The signiďŹ cant tax increases resulting from the need for more ďŹ re protection are deďŹ nitely bad for business. The environmental assessment process does not consider all options equally and has given little chance for meaningful public consultation. Richmond city council will continue to insist that the ďŹ nal decision reects the concerns of all stakeholders and is right for our community. Mayor Malcolm D. Brodie Richmond

UNLEASH THE NEW YOU.

hether you’re the type to pile on jewelry or adhere to a minimalist approach, accessories are a simple and cheap way to spruce up your wardrobe as we transition into the next season. And as spotted on the runways for spring, there are plenty of accessory trends to fit every style. The look was ladylike and demure on the pastel-shaded runway at Louis Vuitton. Dreamy lace outfits were accentuated with candy-coloured handbags and pointy mules in combinations of metallics and light hues. Easy to wear, a pale purse or oversized envelope clutch will brighten up any outfit without stealing too much focus from the rest of your ensemble. As part of the 1920s throwback

to the Great Gatsby trend emerging this year, art deco-inspired accessories are cropping up for spring. Seen on such runways as Milly and Alexander Wang, art deco fashions may be easier to incorporate through jewelry. Look for embellished pieces that use geometric designs and patterns in bold colours. A bonus if they’re oversized art deco earrings — you’ll be getting two trends in one since ear accessories are in vogue for spring and have become the statement jewelry for the Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana shows.

Whether done by a professional ush, or painted at home using a nail brush, tribal designs will be sure to attractt attention to your fingertips. As for other nail trends, a lot of designers opted for neutrals on the runway such as nudes, French manicures and pale pinks. Retro neon shades are also hot for polishes: classic ht reds in the style of Mad Men, bright corals and Pantone’s colour of the year, Tangerine Tango. Another big theme for designers this spring is athleticism.

Sporty ensembles graced the runway at Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs, and along with that came the return of backpacks as accessories. This isn’t a revival of the minibackpack trend that was all the rage 15 years ago though (I still have a patent leather one in pristine condition stored away in my closet). The ones popping into stores for spring are larger and are fashioned in an assortment of colours, shapes and exotic skins. But for those who feel their knapsack days are over, another simple and fun way to sport the athletic trend is through brightly banded, rubber wristwatches. If you’re looking to buy an ‘it’ shoe, go for heels with a platform. We’re not talking about platform boots typical of the Spice Girls, but something more understated. Look for vivid sandals or pumps with w a slight platform. Comfort won’t b be compromised too much in higher heels because of the heftier sole.

Westminster’s Glenbrook Middle School. “There are a lot of really good athletes on this team, but we also have some very good basketball players as opposed to just good athletes,” says Nathan Kishi, who shares the coaching duties with Anne GillrieCarre. Kishi says the players spend a considerable amount of time working at their craft, and it shows in their overall skill set. “Their fundamentals, like being able to dribble and shoot are very good,” he says. “But it’s their defensive play, which we’ve emphasized from the beginning of the year, that is so impressive. Our positioning, knowing where to be on the floor, has continued

to get better as the season has gone on.” Jessica Jones and Jessica Zawada each drained 10 points to pace the Wildcats’ victory over the Strikers in the Richmond playoff final. Claire Siqueira was a standout in a defensive role. But as impressive as that trio was, Kishi says a different combination has stood out each game. The remaining Wildcats are Claire Reynolds, Julia Watson, Jessica Folk, Mikayla Weissler, Justine McCaskill, Montana Leonard, Ellie Reid, Carmen Milne, Denise Su, Kyra Loat, Hannah Partridge, Stephanie Baron, Ali Burns, Kim German, Bonnie Leung, Delaney McBride and Jessica Tarnate.

A’s best All-Blacks For the time being at least, the Athletics have gained the upper hand in their long-standing rivalry with the All-Blacks. After controlling much of the play in the opening half, during which they built up a 2-0 lead, the Athletics relied on goalkeeper Rhys Verde Rios to hold the fort as they downed the All-Blacks 3-1 for their first Richmond Senior Soccer Association League Cup title Wednesday at King George Park. Daryl Ware-Lane opened the scoring in the 21st minute, slipping the ball into the corner of the All-Blacks’ net. Jeffrey Buchanan added an insurance goal in the 35th minute. Walter McKay sealed the win with a goal in the final minute of regulation after Daniel Tait scored for the All-Blacks in the 73rd minute. —by Don Fennell

Soccer grad inks pro contract Jason James signs with team in Croatia by Don Fennell

James is a pure goal scorer who has potentially only scratched the surface. “This is just a stepping stone for him,â€? Gattens says conďŹ dently. “In the

Inter Zapresic is currently in seventh place in the 16team Croatian league and plays its home games at the 5,000-seat Zapresic Stadium.

Sports Editor Richmond youth soccer grad Jason James has signed his ďŹ rst pro soccer contract. The 18-year-old, who played the past two seasons with Richmond United Metro Selects, signed Thursday with Inter Zapresic in the Croatian Premier Division. He went to Zagreb after his 18th birthday last October, and returned to Canada for the Christmas break. Because of the inclement weather in Europe, his return to Croatia was delayed until Jan. 29 to play with the club. “Jason is a result of what is happening with Richmond soccer, and the overall development program from U11 to U18,â€? says John Gattens, who coached James the previous two years. “We’ve had a lot of players go on to play university soccer, and some have gone to Europe to try to earn a pro contract but ended up coming back and playing men’s soccer,â€? Gattens continues. “Jason was focused right from the beginning on what we wanted to do.â€? James sent Gattens a message Thursday expressing his appreciation for his former coach (Gattens) and Richmond youth soccer technical director Roberto Scascia. An outside midfielder,

Rai’s return adds even more punch to Sockeyes Rookie earns four assists as Richmond celebrates Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada with 7-1 victory by Don Fennell Sports Editor Had he not missed nearly half the season with a concussion suffered in early December, Justin Rai’s name may well be atop the Pacific International Junior Hockey League scoring list. As it is, the Richmond Sockeyes’ 17-year-old has still amassed some impressive numbers in his rookie campaign: 15 goals and 27 points in 23 games. Rai has only been back with the Sockeyes for two games, but is already padding his point total and that of the team’s. He scored a goal in a 6-2 Richmond win over the Aldergrove Kodiaks last Thursday. Then on Saturday, in a game celebrating Hockey Day

in Canada at the Richmond Olympic Oval, he earned four assists as the Sockeyes routed the North Delta Devils 7-1. “He looks fresh and has fit in well again with the two guys he was playing with before (Kevin Kilistoff and Carter Popoff ),” says coach Judd Lambert. All rookies, Rai, Kilistoff and Popoff are in the top five in Sockeye scoring. Rai is fifth with 42 points in 23 games, Kilistoff third with 55 points in 40 games, and Popoff second with 57 points in 37 games. Jeremy Hamaguchi leads the Sockeyes in scoring with 61 points in 40 games; third best in the PIJHL behind Delta’s Spencer Traher and Aldergrove’s Thomas Hardy. “They’re talented and they work hard, and those are the

two keys to their consistent play,” says Lambert. “A lot of times you find one of those two things. It’s when you put them together that you’re going to be an effective player.” Efficiency has been synonymous with the Sockeyes this season. They lead just about every statistical category, including a league-best record of 34-6-0. But as impressive as their numbers is a commitment to continue to improve, notably away from the puck. “It’s easy to get complacent with the defensive numbers (58 goals against in 40 games or an average of 1.45 per game) we’ve been able to achieve,” says Lambert. “But when you break it down there are still areas we need to work on, especially without the puck. I thought we did a better job

of that (at the oval) where it was even more challenging because of the Olympic-sized

ice.” (The oval is an additional 10 feet in length and 15 feet

wider than the standard North American rink). See Page 15

Lambert says the Sockeyes maintained position, without giving away too much space to North Delta, and seemed more aware in its defensive end than in some previous games. He acknowledged that

KAPP, JOHN Born August 9, 1924, in Kindersley Saskatchewan, passed away peacefully on December 22 at the age of 87. John was predeceased by his loving wife of 40 years, Alice, in Feb 1991, and is survived by his three children; John (Debbie), Carey (Magda), and Janice (Blair), as well as grandchildren Keenan, Nicole, Kayla, Mark and Chloe. John grew up farming on the Prairies, and moved to the coast when he was 20, where he met the two loves of his life. Alice, his future wife, and fishing. In those early years, Alice managed the growing family and the Steveston home that John built and he headed out on the ‘Galaxie’ to fish the northern waters. He was proud of his profession, his boat and the lifelong friendships that fishing brought him over the course of 65 years on the water. A Celebration of life will be held on Saturday, February 18th from 12 noon - 3 p.m. at the Britannia Shipyard, 5180 Westwater Drive, Richmond, BC. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in John’s memory to The Canadian Cancer Society.

> Richmond Chinese Community Society’s 13th Annual Community Dinner

Year of the Dragon celebration

Around Town Amanda Oye

A

Chinese opera performance, lots of prizes, great food and of course line dancing were all on the agenda for the 13th annual community dinner hosted by the Richmond Chinese Community Society at Continental Seafood Restaurant on Feb. 8.

RCCS hosted the event this year to “bring all of the community together ‌ to celebrate the year of the dragon,â€? said Henry Beh, executive director of the RCCS. This year they had businesses, citizens, community groups

from all over Richmond, Vancouver and Burnaby and all three levels of government represented at the dinner. “I think this year we sold more tables than last year, we attracted more people. We had more speakers than last year too,� Beh said. It is a tradition at the community dinner for some of the guests to give a short speech about their organization, its achievements from the past year and its goals. Another highlight of the evening was the performance by two of RCCS’s Chinese opera students. “People love it,� Beh said. Following the performance and speeches there were door prizes that were handed out and raffle prizes, all of which were donated by businesses and organizations in the community. Amanda Oye covers the social scene. amanda. oye@telus.net.
