Congressional Gold Medal for WWII Chinese American Veterans Initiative

Learn More and Get Involved

Although the Chinese American community has always strived to be good citizens, history has shown that they have not been treated fairly and need to let their Congressional leaders know that their service to our country needs to be recognized. Like many minorities, Chinese Americans overcame discrimination to serve their country bravely and honorably and we need to encourage the Congress to act favorably on this proposal to commemorate the service of these Chinese American veterans.

Community Arboretum ConstructionWith the start of more spring-like weather, Phase 2 of the Chinese Garden at the Arboretum is moving forward, following the successful installation of the Phase 1 Chinese Garden Pathway and viewing area, and Asian-inspired plantings in fall, 2016.  In early May, construction of the Moon Gate that will grace the entry into the Chinese Garden and Walk commenced. 

A special design feature is the Chinese calligraphy that will accompany the Moon Gate.  The calligraphy, created by Hong Zhang, international artist and master calligrapher, and faculty member at the University of Minnesota.  Zhang serves on the community advisory committee for the Chinese Garden & Walk.  The inscription for the moon gate translates to “Garden of Harmonious Beauty.”

Other Phase 2 elements planned for the Chinese Garden include teak benches for family memorials and tributes, in Asian-inspired designs.  (Memorial benches are also offered at other display and specialty gardens.)

A dedication ceremony for the newest Phase 2 features of the Chinese Garden is planned for September.
