Just a reminder:

As you gaze at the beautiful moon on these clear evenings, remember that our annual Mid-Autumn Festival (Moon Festival) potluck is scheduled for Saturday, September 17, at Woodfords Church in Portland, from 5:00 to 7:30 pm.

Again a great occasion for Maine’s Chinese and CAFAM community to get together. More

MPBN questions

Dear CAFAM members,

I’m breaking the rule of sending you only items that relate directly to Chinese matters. Connie Zhu, one of the authors of the recent MECAP study on the impact of Asians in Maine’s economy, is also involved with Maine Public Broadcasting. Because of the importance of this resource, it seems appropriate to circulate her request for feedback.

Best,

Craig

Dear CAFAM members,

This is extremely short notice but I pass it along on the slight chance that it might interest the right person. The deadline is September 7.

A college in Hubei Province (central China) is seeking an English teacher/administrator for a year. They want an experienced person about 50 years old with masters degree or higher.
