OCA Westchester & Hudson Valley Chapter
Embracing the hopes and aspirations of Asian Pacific Americans
The 2018 OCA/FCC joint picnic was a big success despite the rain. We had between 80 and 100 attendees. Everyone stayed dry under the pavilion and, because we were all concentrated in one place, there was a lot of good conversation amongst the attendees.
Special thanks to these board members:
We also want to acknowledge our two special assistants - FCCNY Adoptee Board members June Teichman and Rhianna Hopkins, who agreed to help OCA Westchester this year so they would be familiar with how the picnic is run for when it's FCC's turn next year. They came early to help setup and stayed through the day, running the crafts table and then helping with cleanup! Rhianna also designed our new flier and June kept track of RSVPs in addition to their day of work. It was so great to have them with us.
And many thanks to Jeff Chan and Henry Lee from OCA LI and NJ, who provided us our cooking tent and sound system and helped with setup. Jeff even stayed to the very end to make sure OCA Westchester did a proper job of cleanup so OCA NJ wouldn't lose their deposit. It's so nice to have that inter-chapter relationship that makes all of us into one big family!
Thank you all! Please mark your calendar for next year's picnic on Sunday, September 8, 2019, hosted by FCCNY.
