第十一届堪城龙舟节纪实
2015 Dragon Boat Festival Update

      

      

一年一度的堪城龙舟节今年6月13日在 Country Club Plaza 隆重举行,并圆满落幕。KCCA一直是此活动的主要支持者和倡导者之一。KCCA主席 Dressler先生应邀在主席台上就坐,代表KCCA对此次活动表示了一如既往的大力支持和参与精神。KCCA组织了强大的志愿团队为龙舟节保驾护航,无论是河岸边还是舞台上下,都能看到KCCA志愿者在雨中忙碌的身影,他们团队的 T-Shirt 格外耀眼,给堪城市民留下了深刻的印象。

为了能参于志愿活动,Kenny Feng 毫不犹豫的放下自己繁忙的商务,跑前跑后的保护赛船,而且把家属和朋友也带来为龙舟赛呐喊助威。还有 Alex Wang 等在校高中生也起大早赶来帮忙,加入我们志愿者的行列,自始至终的奔忙了整整一天。尽管下着雨,但KCCA志愿者们没有一个人叫苦退缩,最终队员们圆满得完成了任务,龙舟节的组织者对KCCA团队的表现非常满意并竖起大拇指。

在此次活动中,堪城鼓队,丝路舞蹈团和其他的表演团队都呈现了精彩的节目。盛大的游行和舞龙表演吸引了众多的路人驻足观看,赢得了热烈的掌声。中国及亚洲食品和文化艺术使大家流连忘返,深深陶醉。龙舟赛把整个活动推向了高潮,赛龙舟不仅仅是个人的参与,更是团队的集体合作,每个船上的队员在舵手的指挥下,伴着强有节奏的鼓声,齐力划桨,冒雨前行,勇于拼搏,即赛出了成绩,也增进了友谊。

龙舟赛的团队精神也反映了我们KCCA的信念:KCCA是一个齐心协力的团队,为堪城每一个华人服务,是我们的宗旨,我们为此将不遗余力!

当天,中国驻芝加哥副总领事刘军和领馆其他3位工作人员也赶来参加了庆祝活动。 晚上,又和龙舟节组织者,KCCA,及当地其他组织的代表们一起会聚在 Diastole Scholar’s Center,共同庆祝龙舟节的又一次成功举办,也同时由衷地对所有自愿者表示了感谢!刘副总领事代表领事馆向对华友好协会会长钱行俭老先生,和其他对中美友好关系作出长期贡献的人员赠送了礼物。

活动后,刘副总领事、岑领事、宋领事及其他领馆工作人员借此听取了KCCA的工作汇报,并对如何在新形势下开展华人工作,更好地为华人服务,参与和支持本地的社会活动进行了深入的交流。

The eleventh dragon boat festival in KC on Jun 13th has been very successfully concluded, KCCA has been a big supporter and advocator of the event. KCCA President Mr. Dressler was on the stage to represent our strong support and participation, KCCA also single handily shoulder the task of bouncer team. It happened to be a raining day but our KCCA bouncers completed the task with a strong thumbs up. The Bouncer manager Alan commented on our KCCA Bouncer term performance as “Excellent”!

The performances from Drum Roller of KC, Silk Road Dance Academy, and other performance groups were wonderful. The dragon parade was awesome. Chinese food and Asian Arts were great. The real high light is the boat racing. On boating isn’t about how strong or athletic you are; it’s all about how well you can paddle in unison with your team members. With all 20 paddlers working together in perfect sync, the glide is incredible! The beauty and moral of boating is also reflecting our KCCA’s believe: we work as a team to touch upon every Chinese member in KC great areas! GOOD THINGS come from KCCA!

Deputy Consul General Liu, Consul Cen, and Consul Song flight in from Chicago to attend the dragon boat festival. KCCA with local Chinese community leaders gathered at Diastole Scholar's Center in the evening to celebrate the success of the Festival and express heartfelt thanks to those volunteers on behalf of the Society for Friendship with China Inc.
