Chinese American Association of Minnesota (CAAM) is the oldest and largest Chinese American community organization in Minnesota. On June 5, 2022, the CAAM held its 2021-2022 Stanley Chong Scholarship Award Ceremony at Central Park in Roseville City, Minnesota. This was the first time since the COVID-19 outbreak that the CAAM held a major event in the relatively safe outdoors.

Although the pandemic has dampened the ability to gather and celebrate together, the Lunar New Year was recently celebrated by many Chinese communities throughout the world.  This year, however, Mall of America joined in the celebration by holding its own 30-year anniversary.
