Mid Autumn Moon Festival September 14th

Greetings! 

Gulfcoast Chinese American Association, an Alliance Assocication to SCAS, will be holding our annual Mid Autumn Moon Festival on Saturday September 14, 2013. This year, we added exciting entertainments on top of our pot luck picnic. 

We would like to invite our friends and families at Sister Cities to celebrate this lovely Festival with us. 

The entertainments should rival those that were featured at the One World Award. The Martial Arts Exhibition and new Ribbon Dance will be Spectacular!

Thank you so very much.

Very Best Regards
