記者王善言羅蘭岡報導

去年因故停辦的羅蘭岡「馬車節遊行」(Buckboard Days Parade)18日上午9時重現社區,遊行隊伍包括雄糾糾、氣昂昂的各級學校樂隊,熱鬧的舞龍,穿著曼妙旗袍的台美小姐等,讓人目不暇給。縣政委諾比等 政要也共襄盛舉。遊行隊伍處處可見「龍的傳人」,顯示華人在當地已扮演舉足輕重角色。

羅蘭岡華人協會派出近20名義工,在現場幫忙。會長蔡素媺指出,去年由於缺少足夠人手協辦遊行,因此停辦。但該項活動已有多年歷史,負責籌辦的主流人士捨不得永遠停辦,曾要求華協主辦。但華協並無經驗,因此今年特別在現場觀摩及學習,以便探討來年是否接下主辦活動的重任。

今年主題是「透過義工,可讓社區生活變得更好」(A Better Community, A Better Life - Through Volunteering),遊行隊伍即出現深入社區的各級義工。

羅蘭岡學區華裔教委聶曼麗和陳正治,聖安東尼山社區學院理事陳淑卿,核桃水局理事伍立倫,Alvarado中學校長李瑛等華裔政界及教界人士,也都在遊行隊伍。

羅蘭岡華協也組織一支遊行隊伍,一律穿著整齊亮麗的青綠色T恤,手執美國國旗,象徵華裔也是美國的一部分。

拿著「太極拳體育健身團」中文標語的隊伍,成員也大多是華人。

「世界台灣人妙齡小姐」皇后張舒菱、「台灣妙齡小姐」安姝玥及「台灣親善大使」龔婷瑄,則在台灣小姐基金會董事長劉日興步行陪同下翩翩出場。她們臉上帶著友善的微笑,為一支最美麗的隊伍。

華資地產管理公司STC Management也組織一支醒目的隊伍參加遊行,並跟隨著兩支分別舞弄著兩條祥龍的隊伍。

當地警察局、消防隊、商會、民間摔角隊、中學足球隊、垃圾公司等公私行號,也未缺席,讓遊行呈現多元風貌。遊行終點為Rowland Heights County Park,公園內並舉行好吃、好玩又好看的園遊會,直到下午2時才結束各項活動。

International Day at WSGVAR




On International Day, an audience of real estate professionals gathered at WSGVAR (West San Gabriel Valley Association of Realtors, Inc) to learn about foreign investment, particularly direct investment from individuals in Asian countries. In the current state of the economy, businesses have been encouraged to try alternative methods and seek opportunities from abroad.

At this gathering, the invited speakers shared with guests the importance of understanding foreign mentalities. By learning of their foreign backgrounds and being able to navigate cultural differences, businesses and investors can work together to successfully meet each other’s investment goals and objectives.

In a time of difficulty, it is more important than ever to combine our resources. With the state of distress in current markets, opportunities can be capitalized on through the collaboration and synergy of like-minded individuals.
