Piedmont Asian American Club’s lunar new year celebration welcomed the Year of the Rat last Friday when the annual event hosted families and friends for an evening of traditional Chinese activities, dance, and delicacies at Ellen Driscoll Auditorium.
Piedmont Police Chief Jeremy Bowers kicked off the festivities with a resounding traditional Chinese wish of “gong xi fa cai” — prosperity for all. Entertainment followed with song and dance performances by students from Sunny Yu’s middle and high school classes. The Lion Dance in particular was a crowd-pleaser.
