As school begins to let out and we gear up to enjoy summer activities, we’d like to take a few moments to make sure you are aware of a few events that you may not normally put on your calendar.


As school begins to let out and we gear up to enjoy summer activities, we’d like to take a few moments to make sure you are aware of a few events that you may not normally put on your calendar.

Although a play may not necessarily be one of your top summer time activities, we strongly recommend that you consider attending the opening night performance of Flower Drum Song that is described on the following page. This is a unique opportunity to meet C.Y. Lee and David Hwang who have agreed to attend this performance that is being presented by Mu Performing Arts at the Ordway McKnight Theater on June 27, 2009. There will be a dinner and dance gala in honor of Lee on June 28, co-hosted by Chinese Heritage Foundation, ChinaInsight and Chinese American Ballroom Dance Association. Please log onto www.chinainsight.info or www.chineseheritagefoundation.org for more information.

Following, in July, is the Dragon Boat Festival which is definitely an annual summer-time tradition. 

In addition to his many contributions, staff writer Albert Leung has developed a very personal piece on the recent loss of his maternal grandmother reflecting his feelings as an American-born Chinese. We have conveyed our condolences to Albert on this loss and appreciate his sharing of this experience. This article continues our series of sharing experiences by American born Chinese and we encourage our readers to share their stories. Your story can be about anything you have experienced as an American-born Chinese and we will be more than happy to assist you in preparing an article so please feel free to contact Albert or myself if you would like some assistance.

At this time we would also like to introduce our new Director of Marketing, Connie Mei Ledford.  Connie is very active in the community and is a dedicated volunteer to a number of organizations. She shares the mission of China Insight and is committed to fostering business and cultural harmony between China and the United States. We hope you will show her the same courtesies that you have provided to ChinaInsight in the past. In these difficult financial times, it is increasing difficult for ethnic newspapers to flourish and having Connie on board to assist us in generating advertising support will be instrumental to ChinaInsight’s future.  She can be contacted at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Also, a reminder that the Chinese Heritage Foundation recently mailed their annual fundraising letter so please support the great work that this organization performs. For details visit their Web site at chineseheritagefoundation.org.

As always, we thank you for your support and hope you have a great summer.
