Dear Friends:                                                         

 

We are writing to ask for your renewed support of HUA KUANG CHINESE READING ROOM.

It is with a heavy heart that we start off this year with the loss of another dear friend, Mr. Weichi Kung, who has been instrumental in the cataloging of all of Hua Kuang's books.  Hua Kuang exists today because of strong supporter like Mr. Kung, who loved the history, and classic literature collections in the Reading Room.  We are proud of Hua Kuang’s rich cultural resources, as well as its services and offerings of classes, free of charge to enrich the community, with minimum annual membership fee.  It is critical that we now embark on this year’s fundraising campaign to seek your generous donations to Hua Kuang, in order to sustain its presence in the community, and to continue its excellent programs.

 

Last October, Hua Kuang celebrated its 30th Anniversary with great cultural performances and an Auction.   We passed out a commemorative pen to donors of $100 or more donation.  We sold commemorative Hua Kuang mugs for $10.00 each.  The celebration was a success.  Please check out our website for some pictures, at www.huakuang.yolasite.com.  We have plenty of mugs available for purchase.  We will continue to give away pens until the supply runs out.

 

We are grateful for those of you who have been long-time supporters of Hua Kuang and its activities.  For friends who are unfamiliar with the Hua Kuang Chinese Reading Room, it is a non-profit organization solely operated by a faithful group of volunteers, and has been serving the Bay Area community since 1981.  Hua Kuang’s mission is to serve the community through promoting Chinese culture, history and tradition to the Chinese and American public.  Hua Kuang has a reading room with more than 14,000 volumes of Chinese books and manuscripts, as well as current Chinese magazines and newspapers.  It is a haven for many Chinese immigrants, and a valuable resource for scholars interested in pursuing Chinese classical and contemporary literature, history and arts.  Especially highly regarded is its treasure of many out-of-print books not found in public libraries.  Hua Kuang is currently providing the following programs and opportunities this year.

  • Two weekly citizenship and conversational English classes for citizenship interview:       Monday 12:15 p.m. – 1:45 p.m;, Friday 10:15 a.m. – 11:45 a.m, ESL Eng. 12 noon- 1pm

  • Chinese Painting class on every other Thursdays, 10 am – 11:30 am.

  • East -West Asian Flower Arranging class on alternate Fridays, 9:30 am – 12 noon. 

  • Once a week Knitting class on Wednesdays, 1 p.m. – 3 p.m.

  • Music Keyboard class on every other Thursdays, 1 pm – 3 p.m.

  • We are open on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, from 10 am to 3 pm.

  • Room is available for rent everyday after 3 pm.  Please inquire Hua Kuang for details.

Thank you for your loyal support!

Kelly Peng Tsai,  President
