Knit for Charity Workshop
Greetings, all! Our four day workshop is an ideal way for you to provide a baby with a much needed blanket and a hat that you created and feel good about. Another bonus is that you will learn a new skill if knitting is new to you.
Donna Wong is our returning instructor and she will provide the training and all the materials while you provide the time and effort. The workshop starts on Sunday March 25, 2018 and we need to know who’s coming in order to purchase enough knitting supplies. Click here to obtain more details of the workshop and see photos of the blanket and hat.
Please email us at email@example.com before March 23 if you want to participate in our workshop. This workshop has multi generational appeal and it is sponsored by the Wongs Youth Organization. Feel free to bring your family.
Qi Gong - Chinese Exercise Class
We live with stress everyday and high stress negatively affects our mental and physical health. Qi Gong is a low impact Chinese exercise that will allow you to improve your mental and physical well being by deploying the flow of Qi throughout your body. Donna will be our instructor for the Qi Gong class and it is a weekly class that will begin on Saturday March 24, 2018. Please click here to read the attached notice for more details.
This class also qualifies as a participation credit for the annual Wongs Scholarship and Wongs Book Grant Award. We are proud to offer this class to all age groups and abilities. There is no fee and registration is not required. Take this class and protect your mental and physical health against modern stress.
Ching Ming Festival
The Ching Ming Festival is a special Chinese day for the remembrance of our ancestors. This day occurs on Thurs April 5, 2018 and it is commonly celebrated by families at a cemetery. We know that something goes on at a cemetery but the rituals and traditions that are followed are not typically discussed in everyday conversation.
I think there are many different Ching Ming related traditions that are carried out at the cemetery and that there is no single way to celebrate Ching Ming. The WYO is interested in hearing about how our Wongs community celebrates Ching Ming. Please send us an email and tell us how your family celebrates Ching Ming. We will post all these emails to our website at www.wongs.org and we will get to see the many ways Ching Ming is celebrated. This email submission qualifies as a participation credit for the annual Wongs Scholarship and Wongs Book Grant Award.
The Wongs Association will celebrate Ching Ming Festival on Sun April 1, 2018 at the Wongs Association HQ (303 Spadina Ave. Toronto, M5T 2E6) from 1:30 to 2:30 pm. Our annual celebration includes a traditional ceremony and lunch. This event also qualifies as a participation credit for the annual Wongs Scholarship and Wongs Book Grant Award. Come join us and take part in a time honored tradition with us.
