Conference of the Yee Fung Toy Society of Vancouver Scholarship Class of 2013

On Sunday, January 19th, we held our annual Scholarship Conference for the class of 2013. This year, we were particularly fortunate to be in the company of our deserving students and their families but also a handful of board members and volunteers from various other benevolent associations in Chinatown.

We started with a round of self-introductions and welcomed first-time applicant, Jeffrey Yu, to the event. Other students in attendance were Carina Yee, Amanda Yee, Cameron Yee, Maurice Yu, and myself. Also joining us was Carla Yee (Joseph Yee Memorial Scholarship Fund sponsor), David Yee (YFT Scholarship Committee Chair), George Yee (Vice-Chair of the YFT Society of Vancouver), Esther Yue (YFT Youth Committee), Edmund Ma (Mah Athletics), Dana Mah (Vice President of the Mah Society of Canada), June and Doris Chow (HPBA Board Members), Helen and Lily Lee (Lee Society Board Members), Leander Szeto (President of the Seto Clans Association), and Orville Lim (President of the Lim Sai Hor (Kow Mock) Benevolent Association).




We then tuned in for a great presentation given by Claudia Li and Kevin Huang from Shark Truth and the Hua Foundation. Claudia and Kevin were engaging presenters who spoke passionately about their interest in the synthesis of cultural heritage and social change. Many of their initiatives stem from a concern for ecosystem sustainability and food security.

Shark Truth was a program established to advocate for shark conservation and educate the public about the cruel practice of shark-fining in the preparation of shark fin soup. Following their presentation, Claudia and Kevin spoke about their unconventional career paths leading to their involvement with their current work. They encouraged the students to be open-minded and willing to engage in new experiences as a way to discover gratifying opportunities they may never have considered before.

Following the guest presentation, Carina and I read a selection from our essay submissions entered in YFT’s first-time essay contest. Jim then concluded with a discussion regarding updates on award applications.

Thanks to everyone who was able to attend and see you at the upcoming YFT Spring Banquet! And special thanks to James Yu, for taking these memorable photos!

迎清明 溫哥華余風采堂宗親赴山景墓園祭祖






























雖然距離二○一四年四月五日(農曆甲午年三月初六)的清明節還有幾天,但温哥華各公墓墳場都陸續出現了掃墓祭祖的人潮。

古人的飲水思源,不忘先人,是為了增強凝聚力,每年的清明祭祖都寄託了海外炎黃子孫崇敬先人的民族精神,承載著民族的認同感。拜山祭祖的傳統, 實有助僑胞特別是生於異邦的後人,籍慎終追遠銘記先僑創業史蹟,承傳中華文化薪火。

在這櫻花初放的好日子,温哥華余風采堂同仁於三月卅日(星期日)帶著燒豬、三牲酒醴、鮮花、 糕點等依次走入菲沙山景墓園內的安魂亭,虔誠地祭祀祖先,上香、行三鞠躬禮、恭讀祭文、敬獻鮮花、敬供品、祭酒等祭祀程序, 追念前賢,過程氣氛肅穆莊重,表達了對先僑的敬重和繼往開來的意志。

當日早上露出些少陽光,後來烏雲蓋日,然後下起雨來,所謂「清明時節雨紛紛,路上行人欲斷魂」, 正是這霪雨霏霏的時節,天公不作美,但温哥華余風采堂同仁仍然前來參加拜祭活動,包括加拿大余風采總堂副主席余耀祥、書記余柏寧、 財政余萍相、温哥華余風采堂主席余美湛、副主席余啟康、副主席余佳卓、顧問余詠本伉儷、顧問余錦文伉儷、 核數主任余漢銳、福利組副主任余開儀、余錫儒夫人、余錦相宗長、余耀夔宗長等。

拜祭後返回堂所,並召開了二○一四年度堂員大會暨舉行主席交接及職員宣誓就職典禮、儀式結束後,堂所備有午餐招待出席宗親們、 還分享了胙肉及卡拉 OK 歌唱助興。

Tse Clansman Association of Vancouver Celebrating 39th Anniversary






























Members of the Yee Fung Toy Society of Canada and the Yee Fung Toy Society of Vancouver were invited by their Tse cousins to join them for their celebration of their 39th Anniversary and the Women's Committee 21st Anniversary on Saturday, April 26th, 2014.

The noon ancestor ceremony was held at the Tse Clansman Association of Vancouver Hall. The evening banquet was held at the Fraser Court Seafood Restaurant.
 
Jim was asked to speak at the Tse's noon ceremony that got acknowledgement or feedback in the dinner speeches from Councilor Raymond Louie and Henry Chea from Seattle, Chew Lun Benevolent Association Honorary President.

Here is an excerpt from Jim's speech:

Congratulations on 謝氏宗親會慶祝成立第卅九週年暨婦女部二十一週年年紀念聯歡. Best wishes for another 39 years, and many more. Thirty nine years ago or even 21 year ago, we were the youth generation learning from our elders; today we are the elders looking for a new generation to take over.

Succession is a problem common to all associations, and it is a more difficult problem than in the past. We have a generation of Canadian born Chinese who do not know enough about their association to appreciate its value.

The associations have to do more to recruit them as members and as future leaders. When we celebrate anniversaries like today, we have a gathering of associations who maintain special relations such as the Chew Lun Association in Canada and the US , and the Yee, Mah, and Tse associations.

We have an opportunity to exchange ideas on what we can do on our own as well as together to solve this problem. I look forward to sharing ideas with you.

PRC 65th Anniversary Celebration Gala








David, Esther, Kai Hong and I attended. Esther took photos of us and of the program. After listening to the featured speakers listed on the program, we also heard from Federal Minister Alice Wong, Mayor Robertson, and MLA Jenny Kwan. Most of the speakers point out the increasing trade between China and Canada as a good thing. It is not for them and more for the media to discuss the actualities and implications.

This seems to the year when CBA puts out a new cast for this (and likely future similar events). While President James Chu is away in Beijing at the Oct 1 celebration, VP Jun Ing delivered the Opening Address. Kenneth Liu, a new and younger board member, took Jun's role as male MC. The Acknowledgements were delivered by Yifu Su, the new Vice Secretary General.

I found an interesting article in Georgia Straight on this topic.

The Shaoquan Delegation Visited YFT



 



 














The City of Shaoguan delegation visit to Vancouver is a direct result of the formation of the World Yee Family Association. At the first World Yee Family Convention in Hong Kong in 2000, we traveled to Shaoguan to visit the birth place of our ancestor Yee Jing, most of us for the first time. At the 5th World Yee Family Convention in Vancouver in 2012, we invited the City of Shaoguan to send delegates (they were unable to attend due to visa issues). When they were planning an official visit to their sister city San Francisco in October 2014, they asked if we would host a side visit to Vancouver. We gladly sent out an official invitation to help with their visa application.

It was the first visit to North America for the Vice Mayor, Ms. Lan Yin and her 5 fellow delegates, Ms. Deng Caihong, Vice secretary, Shaoguan people’s government; Mr. Zhang Caiming, Director, the Office of Science and Technology of Shaoguan Municipality; Mr. Wen Qingnian, Director, the Tourist Administration of Shaoguan Municipality; Mr. He Xingyuan, Deputy researcher, Foreign and Overseas Chinese Affairs Bureau of Shaoguan Municipality; and Ms. Li Huilan, Translator, Foreign and Overseas Chinese Affairs Bureau of Shaoguan Municipality. They had no idea of the existence of family associations. They might have easily visited the Yee Fung Toy in San Francisco had they been alerted to the opportunity.

We welcomed them to our Association Hall in Vancouver at 11:00 on October 17. After presenting us with gifts from Shaoguan, they told us more about their city and we told them more about the Yee Fung Toy family association and Chinatown in Vancouver. The Vancouver chapter hosted a light buffet lunch. After lunch we walked the few blocks through Chinatown to the Mah Society of Vancouver. Our Mah cousins hosted a meeting with refreshments and much exchange of information. We left the Mah Society and walked to the Chinese Benevolent Association of Vancouver and met with the board members waiting there for a chat over tea.

The dinner hosted by the Yee Fung Toy of Canada at the Pink Pearl Restaurant was attended by 43 guests included 12 from our Mah cousins.

What we learned from our visitors and dinner speakers:

1. Shaoguan is a big tourist city in Guangdong, rich in tourism resources. The main scenic spots include: the Danxia Mountains; Nan Hua Buddhist Temple; Shizi Rock of “Maba People”, Zhuji Old Alley for natives of the residents in the Pearl River Delta; Ruyuan Grand Canyon; Nanling National Forest Park in the Shikeng Ravine. I remember visiting the Fengcai Tower in the centre of Shaoguan built in the Ming Dynasty to commemorate Yee Jing.

 

2. Compared to Guangzhou, Shaoguan is a small city at 3 million people located at the north of Guangdong province. With its more remote but picturesque location and slower pace, it is a more livable city than Guangzhou and most other cities in China. It still has a choice to maintain its attractions as a livable city rather than pursue heavy industrial development that leads to pollution and environmental degradation.

3. Shaoguan should pursue opportunities to set up a sister city in BC that has similar development goals and culture.

4. Planning for the World Yee Family Convention in 2015 should include a trip to Shaoguan as well as a trip to Guangzhou to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the pairing of Vancouver and Guangzhou as sister cities.

The Shaoquan delegation will visit some scenic spots the next couple of days in Vancouver before heading back to Shaoquan, we would like to thank them for visiting us and wish them all a pleasant journey home.
