Chairlady's Note

大家好嗎! Hello Everyone!

I believe that we are finally getting a taste of Autumn weather today which means it will be time to revive our hiking group! The bikers have stayed pretty active over the hot, long summer, but us hikers may be a little wimpy when it comes to overheating. Who's with me to go hiking?

Luckily, last Saturday's weather was perfect for the Compass Festival at People's Park. The humidity was down and the sky was cloudless. Our bakers made amazing treats that delighted the Taiwanese who visited the booth and triggered major nostalgia for home from the Westerners. Please join me in thanking them as well as the lovely ladies who worked tirelessly to sell them.

Mark your calendars! The December 3rd Christmas Party is going to be a blast! Not only will we have a delicious buffet dinner, but we will also have special performances and games for everyone--AND SANTA! For our newcomers, the Christmas annual family event is our chance to come together and celebrate the spirit of friendship. This year, it will be held at the Evergreen hotel. As last year, we have held the ticket cost to 1200NTD for adults and 700NTD for children (6th grade and under). If you have a little one, don't forget to bring a wrapped gift for Santa to give to your child (Shhhh....). The hospitality committee will receive the gifts when you check in for the buffet. It's really fun to watch the little one's wait around Santa for gifts, even the teenagers! Please feel free to bring your own beverage.

With much love,

Rebecca MacNeal
