The Castro Valley community helped usher in the Year of the Rabbit on Sunday afternoon, January 30. Multicultural Educational Research Center (M.E.R.C.) partnered with the Library to bring the event to Chabot & Canyon Rooms. Patty Chu’s
folkdance class provided lively entertainment, members the Chinese Youth Symphony gave performances on the traditional Chinese Harp (Gu-Zheng), and Henry Li offered a dazzling martial arts demonstration, including wushu, where he wielded a sword.
Participants practiced paper cutting crafts and traditional calligraphy, while snacking on traditional treats.
According to the Chinese Zodiac, people born in the Year of the Rabbit are articulate, talented, and ambitious. They are virtuous, reserved, and have excellent taste. Rabbit people are admired, trusted, and are often financially lucky. They are fond of gossip but are tactful and generally kind. Rabbit people seldom lose their temper. They are clever at business and being conscientious, never back out of a contract

Thank you to the staff and parents from M.E.R.C. school for bringing this beautifully organized event to the Library.

Looks like a fun time. Sorry to miss out, the programs are usually during my girls’ naptime. =(
