新加坡余氏總會端午節慶祝會












余氏總會去年修改章程,增添了新的宗旨--協助國家推廣文教工作, 栽培具有優良傳統價值觀的雙語人才。 為了落實這個目標,我們成立了文教組,並積極推廣傳統文化。

端午節,是華人的一個具有特殊意義的節日, 通過對憂國憂民的愛國詩人屈原的事蹟,教導大家關心 社會,熱心族人。 余氏總會在六月十七日(星期日)中午,舉辦了盛大的端午節慶祝會,吸引了近百名宗親報名參加。

那天,我的工作是把近百個粽子載來總會,一走進會所, 發現青年團和婦女組成員正在準備美味佳餚,忙得不亦樂乎,會所更是佈置得整齊美觀。 不久,空氣中彌漫著粽子的香味,宗親們都陸陸續續到來,節目就開始了。

首先是進添會長致詞,歡迎大家前來出席慶祝會,接著豐富的食品不斷出爐, 每一張桌面上都擺滿佳餚,讓大家大快朵頤。 過後的節目是由平光秘書講述端午節的來源和故事,他也鼓勵宗親們應該珍惜老祖宗留下來的好東西, 不要等到這些東西失去了,或被別人拿走了,才來遺憾。

就以端午節來說,這個節日被韓國率先在二○○五年, 向聯合國教科文組織申請列入世界非物質文化遺產的節日, 並獲批准,聯合國承認「江淩端午祭」是韓國特有的傳統節日,引起炎黃子孫的譁然。

當時,中國並沒有真正把端午節定為公共假日,被別人率先申請為文化遺產之後, 才來行動, 也向聯合國教科文組織申遺,並且在二○○九年正式規定端午節為公共假日,放假三天, 喚起民眾對傳統文化的認識和重新思考。 二○○九年九月,聯合國教科文組織終於通過了端午節是中國的傳統節日。

大家一邊吃東西,一邊聽故事,看圖片,對端午節有了深一層的瞭解。 接著,文教主任細妹講述北宋詩人張耒的七言詩《和端午》:

競渡深悲千載冤,忠魂一去詎能還。
國亡身殞今何有,只留離騷在世間。

過後,大家也參與細妹主持的「詞語接龍」遊戲,玩得好開心。 最後是歌唱節目,余源宗親開唱《一支小雨傘》,他有備而來,邊唱邊撐開雨傘滿場飛,雨傘還會發亮,十分別致。 大家都愛唱歌,一首一首的唱個不停,到了下午三點,慶祝會才結束。

泰國余氏宗親總會主席余聲清率余總宗親訪陝西總會

泰國陝西總會余新齊會長和七位到訪余氏宗親進行了深入交流和座談, 余會長向大家介紹了泰國陝西總會的發展情況和幾年來陝西和西安所發生的巨大變化, 並真誠邀請余聲清主席組團赴陝西考察訪問和尋找商機。 余聲清主席愉快的接受了邀請並就一些出訪的細節和余新齊會長進行了交流並達成共識。

交流座談後,新齊會長設陝西風味宴請余聲清貴賓一行,雙方愉快就餐並合影留念。

Southern California Yee Family Association 2018 Picnic













 






The Southern California Yee Family Association held its Annual Picnic on Saturday, August 25, 2018 at Barnes Park, Monterey Park, CA. Over 140 Yee’s gathered on a perfectly warm but not blazing hot Southern California day.

Our President Jing Han Yu greeted our guest and also introduced our special guest, Kenneth M. Yee (Yee Fung Toy Eastern Grand President), and Kenny Yee (Yee Fung Toy Western Grand President).

We enjoyed great food as well as a morning tai chi exercise session lead by Thomas as well as a raffle (hosted by Grand Elder Alan Yee and his wife Edith Yee) and variety of games for the youth. The water balloon toss turned into a water balloon fight but we will not blame Vice President John Yu, English Secretary Warren Yee or Next Generation Chair Chao Yu for the ruckus.
