CAFAM is revving up for an exciting Chinese New Year Festival next year, February 4th 2012, to ring in the year of the dragon! And what a better way to celebrate this zodiac animal’s ambition and good fortune than by moving to a beautiful new location! With the lunch lines wrapping around ourselves and dance performances of the past packed to standing room only crowds, we transition from dear Catherine McAuley High School to our new venue, Westbrook Middle School and Performing Arts Center, which promises beautiful, open spaces for CAFAM to hold its biggest and largest CNY Festival to date. We’ll be debuting photos of our fantastic setting over the course of 3 months, so come back to our website for new updates.

For the first time in CAFAM’s 24-year history, we are sending out a call for CNY sponsors! With a transition to a new, state-of-the-art venue for CNY and a bold commitment for new and improved programs and events for members, CAFAM is taking its first steps toward accepting donations from kind and generous sponsors of all shapes and sizes. We personally invite you, as an individual or business, to help move CAFAM’s mission forward for spreading Chinese culture and fostering community growth.

Dear CAFAM members,
On Thursday, December 1, the Bowdoin College Museum of Art will sponsor a lecture in connection with its exhibition of ancient bronzes. The speaker will be Cornell University anthropology professor Magnus Fiskesjo.
He will speak on “Chinese Politics, Archaeology, and World Cultural Heritage.”
The talk will take place in Kresge Auditorium at 4:30 PM. For those who have not seen it, this would be a good chance to look at the exhibit.
