Dear Legionnaires 親愛的會友：
When our Post celebrated our 70th anniversary last year, fifteen members of the San Francisco Cathay Post 384 led by Commander Nelson Lum attended the celebration. We truly appreciate the friendship of our comrades from the West Coast that has been built over the years. They informed us that the Cathay Post 384 will celebrate its 85th anniversary in May 2016. Last month, our Post formed a group of 22 Legionnaires and Auxiliary members and travelled to San Francisco to attend the Cathay Post 384 anniversary celebration. It was a semi-formal affair with some officers and guests dressed in tuxedos. Our post presented a scroll written in Chinese that said, “To Serve Our Nation with Devotion and Loyalty, To Serve Our Community with Vigorous Enthusiasm”. The celebration was also attended by Legionnaires from Boston Chinatown Post 328 and Los Angeles Chinatown Post 4618.
The Legion, Auxiliary and SAL Legion Year 2016-2017 officers took their oaths on June 4th, 2016. Please join us in congratulating them for a successful year. We would like to thank you for your support and trust. The officers’ installation took place in the Chairman Peter Woo Auditorium and many Legion and community leaders attended. Guests included three members of the Boston Chinatown Post. Commander Mark Eng, completed his two years of service and proudly proclaimed the Post’s continuing success. He thanked the Past Commanders for their guidance, encouragement and also all of the officers’ cooperation to make his job much easier. He said he will always cherish his time as commander of Lt. Kimlau Post. He pointed out the 70th anniversary celebration and the dedication of the newly renovated second floor as the “Chairman Peter Woo Auditorium” as the most memorable events during the two years. Newly installed commander Kenneth Wong also pledged to uphold the American Legion’s goals and principles and to carry on the fine traditions that were built before him. He made a point to recognize Chairman Peter Woo for his instrumental decision to purchase the post headquarters building to allow our post to continue to flourish.
