|Phoenix Yee Family 17th
On April 29, 2006 all area Yee’s gathered at the Phoenix Yee Fung Toy Association Building to celebrate the 17th Anniversary of the completion of the Yee Fung Toy Association building.
A ceremonial service of thanks giving in memory of our virtuous ancestors began promptly at high noon. Over 100 fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, aunties, and uncles rose in reverent memory to pay homage to our supreme ancestor Yee Chung Sheung. The service was traditional and dignified.
After the service, the Yee members enjoyed a delicious buffet lunch prepared by the Phoenix Yee Family Woman’s Department. These hard working ladies presented a delicious assortment of entrees, dim sum, “Hom/Hem” Chinese and American pastries and yummy desserts.
In accordance with the custom of the Home Village, Heung Ha, each Yee celebrant received a portion of roast pig….for a “little piece of home”. A total of six roast pigs were provided by the Association and individual Yee members.
