Celebrate Chinese New Year at Penn State York Feb. 26

2/17/2010 —

A Chinese New Year celebration is set for Friday, Feb. 26 sponsored by Penn State York’s Asian Culture Club (ACC). The event gets started at 6 p.m. in the Lion’s Den of the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center and is free and open to the public. Donations for Haiti will be accepted at the door. This celebration was originally set for Feb. 12 but was postponed due to inclement weather.

The program for the evening includes a fashion show featuring traditional Asian clothing, Chinese food, Vietnamese food, and Chinese dance. There will also be opportunities to learn to make Chinese dumplings and the art of Chinese lettering.

The Asian Culture Club offers members the opportunity to learn about Asian culture through programs, food, customs, and activities. In the past, the ACC has sponsored an Asian comedy show, an Asian tea festival, as well as the new year celebration. The adviser for this group is Monica Grigera, multicultural programs coordinator at the campus.
