Bring Your Children to Celebrate & Meet Our New Mayor Yiahway Yeh
Nature Gallery will close Jan 26th - and re open in a brand new space at 2nd & State Street in Los ALtos, on February 10th.
This Saturday Jan 21st, 2-4pm, Join A Children's Chinese New Year Lantern Celebration at Nature Gallery, 87 Town & Country Village:
With our first Chinese American mayor in attendance, children will write their new year wishes on traditional red paper lanterns. This is an auspicious beginning for the Chinese Lunar New Year. Many younsters in Taiwan look forward to the ceremony, held on the full moon at the end of the new year. So this but a glimpse of what the actual ceremony entails, and a chance for our local families to meet our wonderful new mayor, Yiahway Yeh.
Nature Gallery's owner, Carol Garsten is holding this event for the community. Students of Chinese American heritage will have the uplifting expereince of seeing their culture acknowledged. Non Asian students have the opportunity to taste another culture, and ALL children get to meet our first Chinese American mayor of Palo Alto!
families are welcome on Saturday 21, with or without a lantern. We'll have some red ones on hand, and children can add their wishes at that tme. We will have a wish on one side of the attached lantern card that reads, "peace, compassion and prosperity" - Nature Gallery's wish for all children in the New Year.
Please RSVP for this event
Note: Space is limited to about 25 families
