Happy Lunar New Year!
Happy Lunar New Year to everyone who are celebrating across the country and around the world, as we all welcome the Year of the Golden Pig. This Lunar New Year is the Year of the Golden Pig, a symbol of prosperity and good fortune, and FAPAC is joining this celebration. This Lunar Year is being celebrated by diverse cultures in America’s Asian Pacific Islander community. Let’s take time to reflect on how diversity has contributed to not only America’s cultural vitality but also played an important role in building America from Filipino settlers during the Colonial period, to the Chinese immigrant workers on the Transcontinental Railroad, to the Vietnamese refugees in the 1970s. Together, we celebrate, family, friends, community, and prosperous Lunar Year for all.
On behalf of the FAPAC National Board of Directors, we wish everyone auspicious New Year 2019 filled with joy, happiness, peace and good health.
Olivia Adrian, FAPAC President
