American Independence Day Celebration 2012
4:00 - 9:00 PM, Saturday, June 30, 2012
Thanks to everyone who made the 2012 American Independence Day Celebration (6th Annual for Campus Village and 3rd Annual in partnership with the American Chamber of Commerce Northeast China Chapter) a success--fun was had by all. A special thanks to the BBQ Team (Joe, Ron, Lynn, John, Kris, and others) who braved a day of rain smoking brisket and chickens, and then coming back the next day to do it again--everyone thought the food was fantastic! A big thanks to Kim and the cafe staff for producing some great side dishes--the BBQ sauce was awesome! Kate, from AmCham, did a great job with the logistics of it all, and also hired a nice band that played some great tunes in the open-air venue with the Longshan Mountains in the background. There were also many other volunteers that helped with the kids games and the bouncy castle--thank you all. The Campus Village and DAIS guards, housekeeping, and maintenance did a great job helping setup, cleanup, and break-down the party...this type of event really depends on these guys...thank you. And last, but certainly not least, thanks to the Campus Village office staff (Kelly, Jasmine, Nancy, Joyce, and Teyla) for being there, as always, to help in any way possible.
