Showing of Documentary Film "Meeting 'Round the Table: Chinese-Americans in Monterey" on Saturday, January 24, 2015 at the Monterey Public Library

On Saturday, January 24, 2015, 2 p.m. the Monterey Public Library will show the documentary film "Meeting 'Round the Table: Chinese-Americans in Monterey" based on interviews collected by the Library in a recent grant-funded project.  Our SBCC member, Gerry Low-Sabado, was interviewed by the library several years ago for another film "Shades & Stories of Monterey".  Excerpts from that interview are included in this film.  This film also includes interviews with Gerry's aunt Frances Low and other relatives and friends.  If you are free this coming weekend, Gerry would like to invite you to come visit the picturesque setting of Monterey and stop by the library to view the showing of the film that will be preceded by a brief discussion of this Preserving Community Heritage Project by Dennis Copeland and Jeanne McCombs.  Admission is free but reservations are required.  Click here to see the flyer for more details.

There will be loads of fun featuring the FCSN Dream Achievers Band (Friends of Children with Special Needs).  They are a fantastic band and their name is spreading.  The FCSN Band has performed internationally in Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, California State Capital, and various universities.  FCSN Dream Achievers Band will be playing a mix of Christmas and band music.  Come and dance.  Some of the seniors will join us in the merry making and all love to watch the action!  We'll have dinner hosted by the two organizations and Aegis Gardens afterwards.  We always have a great time with the seniors.

SBCC is Turning 50!

In case you are not aware of the significance of this year, SBCC is turning 50.  That's right, 50 years old! Hard to believe isn't it?

To celebrate this momentous point in SBCC's long history, a special party is being planned to bring together all members, former members, families and friends who have had any connection to SBCC over the past 50 years.

As a start, I am trying to develop a database of everyone who fits any of the above categories.  Could you please help me to gather this information?  If anyone has passed on, I am collecting their names as well.

Please click on the OPEN FORM button below to fill out the information.  When you are done, please click the Submit button at the bottom of the form.

The anticipated time frame for the party will be Fall 2015.  Date/Time/Place TBD - depending on the number of responses.

Thanks for your help!
