走進2017,新會長劉暢與大家一起回首歷史

新年回首

阿拉巴馬州中區華僑協會(CAAC)感謝所有董事成員,志願者,會員和各界朋友們三十餘年的大力支持和無私奉獻,沒有你們,就沒有CAAC在美國南方的持續存在和今天的繁榮。

三十餘年,我們一同走來,求同存異,取長補短,開拓進取,不斷發展,一起在這個美、麗、堅的國度留下了自己美麗且堅韌的軌跡。

如同房舍的存在一般,不論主人在何方,家是房舍存在的理由。這過去的三十餘載裡,多少政治,經濟和社會的起起落落,周折與變遷,多少成員的來來去去,加入和別離,CAAC作為本地炎黃後裔及友好人士們的家,還在這裡。她興盛不衰的存在,使我們不得不感嘆於那種種有關中華文明為何經久不衰的雄辯,因為我們和CAAC一起就正在這個歷史中書寫著歷史…..

您知道嗎? CAAC成立於1982年,曾用名CACA,是Central Alabama Chinese Association 的縮寫; 您還知道嗎? CAAC的第一份固定刊物 The CACA Monthly 首期出版在1988年6月,雖是一份半手抄本,但其中的內容至今讀來還不乏濃濃的中華味和甜甜的鄰裡情。

Thank you to all CAAC members, volunteers and friends for more than 30 years of strong support and dedication. Together, we achieved CAAC’s continued growth in the south of the United States of America.

For more than thirty years, we came together, seeking common ground while reserving differences, learn from each other and forge ahead. Also in this thirty years, the number of political, economic and social ups and downs, twists and turns, members come and go, join and parting, CAAC as the home for local Chinese and friends is still here. Our flourishing existence lament the various reasons why Chinese civilization enduring eloquence. Together, we left behind a beautiful track and more to come…

Did you know? CAAC was founded in 1982, formerly known as CACA, Central Alabama Chinese Association. Did you know? CAAC’s first publication, The CACA Monthly, was a semi-handwritten copy and first published in June 1988.
