活动从1:30开始,很快就令人兴奋。龙队在整个剧院里跳舞,缠绕。在参加的社区中上下跑过那么多的剧院。有许多有才华的演员的居民,嘉宾和家庭成员。政要来自周边地区,包括地方,县和州官员。新任命的自由党杰拉尔德Sharfenberger也出席米德尔敦。他在事发前几个小时就宣誓就职。

泽西海滨中文学校的各种演讲和演讲都令人赞叹。它谈到了中国文化遗产的重要性,以及通过泽西海岸华人学校提供的这类节目对Holmdel和周边城镇来说非常重要的价值。

2018 is the Year of the Dog and the event was as spectacular as previous years. Dancing the ancient dances. Celebrating the culture and expressing warm hospitality to invited guests. Performers read poetry, solved riddles and exhibited chinese martial arts. In the spirit of community, hosts of invited guests were invited up on the stage to dance together in unity. They certainly did their best to follow along with the choreographer.

Ancient and beautiful song video can be viewed here (3 minutes):

The event began at 1:30 and was quickly exciting. Dragon teams danced about and wound through the entire theater. Running up and down the theater passing so many in the community that attended. There were residents and guests and family members of the many talented performers. Dignitaries came from all around the area including local, county and state officials. Newly appointed Freeholder Gerald Sharfenberger was in attendance from Middletown as well. He was sworn into office only hours before the event.

Various presentations and speeches lauded the Jersey Shore Chinese School. It spoke to  the importance of chinese cultural heritage and the value that programming such as that available through the Jersey Shore Chinese School is important to Holmdel and surrounding towns.
