Message from President
Good evening Ambassador and Madam Fuh, all honorable Mayors, vice mayor, county supervisors, city council members, Taiwan government officials, overseas commissioners, all distinguished guests, as well as CLDAA members, families and friends.
On behalf of the members of CLDAA, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all of you for taking the time to celebrate with us tonight. Welcome!
As you all know, we are here tonight to celebrate the 10th anniversary of CLDAA. Reflecting back, I’m very proud to share that we have came a long way from being just group of 6 co-founders to now more than 3,000 members strong. How did we get to this point? I humbly believe, it’s because CLDAA stands for the right attributes — through line dancing, we encourage health, happiness, confidence, teamwork, respect, care and love. And, we are serving more than 220,000 people yearly through 21 classes per week throughout the Bay Area. As a result, it’s not simply about line dancing. It’s become a method of preventative care and maintenance both mentally and physically. In addition, many have enjoyed the sense of community and the benefits of volunteering together to give back to others.
Tonight, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your long-term support. Without your support, CLDAA would not have been able to accomplish what we have accomplished. Therefore, please, I would like to ask for your continued support which will enable CLDAA to achieve even more and expand our reach to even more communities.
I would like to especially thank all of our members for your support. Thank you for trusting us and staying with us for the past ten years. It is because of you we are motivated. And, it is because of you, we are committed. So, please let us continue to dance for our health, our happiness and our colorful life.
Lastly, I would like to thank all of our volunteers…this is a big celebration and without your time, efforts and passion, this event would not have been possible. Thank you all sincerely.
