Happy Retirement to Assistant Chief Gin Yuen Yee














Hundreds of New York’s Finest, NYPD colleagues as well as retired officers, friends, family members, politicians and the New York Yee Fong Toy Association members gathered outside the 121st Precinct in Staten Island on Wednesday, June 28th afternoon to wish Assistant Chief Gin Yuen Yee, a longtime NYPD Officer and a Staten Island borough commander a happy and healthy retirement, as he walked out of the stationhouse in Graniteville for the last time.

Grand Elder Frank Yee, Grand Advisor Gong Sum Yee, New York Yee Fong Toy Association President Jeung On Yu and Gin Yuen Yee's niece Betty Yee attended Assistant Chief Gin Yuen Yee's retirement ceremony.

The retirement celebration for Assistant Chief Gin Yee was amazing. There are very few Chinese who get to be elevated to rank of Chief in the NYPD. We all wish Assistant Chief Gin Yee all the best in retirement after 42 years with NYPD.

This park has a beautiful environment, with towering trees, green grass, fresh air, clear lake water, and splashing pools, giving people a feeling of vitality. It is indeed a great place for outings. The park is beautiful and pleasant, with facilities for kids to play.

There are a lot of traditional picnic dishes for the outing, including fried chicken cooked by President Yihua Yu, fried vermicelli, and sesame balls. There are also white sugar sponge cakes, roast pork and pizza bought from outside shops, as well as food brought over by clan relatives and friends, such as dried scallop fried rice, Luo Bai beef brisket, fried dumpling, tapioca cake, glutinous rice balls, cupcakes and fruits.

After lunch, the Stockton Yee Fung Toy association held a lucky draw, which pushed everyone's enthusiasm to a climax. Congratulations to all the lucky winners. Then, clan relatives and friends took a group photo in the beautiful Victory Park.

Finally, the clansmen and friends shook hands with a happy mood and said goodbye, wishing each other a safe, healthy, and happiness! See everyone again next year!

New York Yee Fung Toy Association Resumed Scholarship Awards


























The New York Yee Fong Toy Association resumed its annual scholarship award ceremony on Sunday, August 20, 2023, at 1PM. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic concerns we postponed many of our usual events. We are slowly making a comeback but for our family association the usual turnouts are not what we are accustomed to

This year we had 33 scholarship award recipients. We had 7 college students, 5 high school students, 11 junior high school students and 4 elementary school students getting monetary awards. In addition, we had 6 college students that qualified for the special $500 Five Tong Awards. They are Gloria Yu (余 雅慧), Isabel Yu (余頌 恩), Ivan Yu (余振鋒), Laura Yee (余向瑩), Deborah Yu (余嘉欣) and Sandy Yu (余家寶). Unfortunately, many college students either went back to school or took some time off and could not attend. Congratulations to all the students and their parents for a job well done and continued success.

Our emcee Advisor Andy (余應昌) started the ceremony with some greetings and welcome remarks. Also, this year we did not have a keynote speaker, so we were grateful to have NYC Council member Christopher Marte come by to address the attendees. Our President Jeung On (余長安) continue to thank everyone for participating and wish all the students continued success. He also echoed the message that youth participation is very important for our association, especially for next year’s 27th National Yee Convention. Although this event was short, we did get to chat and interact with each other, most of whom we had not seen for almost 3 years. So, this event did turn out to be a winner for everyone.
