Ardsley Chinese Association (ACA)

Dear Friends and Families:

 

We would like to reach out and introduce you to our newly established Ardsley Chinese Association (ACA). The goals of our organization are to promote better communication and integration of Chinese-American families residing in the Rivertowns with the rest of the community. We plan to organize various activities to increase Chinese cultural awareness and to better support our community. These activities include get-togethers for traditional Chinese holidays; cable TV broadcasting programs to teach Chinese and to discuss topics relating to Chinese history and culture, as well as discussions regarding challenges and solutions around issues like cultural conflicts, racial inequalities and discrimination; volunteer opportunities for students to cultivate leadership and teamwork skills; summer camp opportunities to visit China; fund-raising activities and charity events to give back to our community.

 

If you are interested in joining us for future events and activities, or learning more about our organization, please feel free to contact us at 2019ArdsleyChineseAssociation@gmail.com.

 

 

Sincerely Yours,

 

 

The ACA Committee
