Monthly President’s Report MARCH 2018 Saturday, February 24 was Lunar Fest. This event was free and open to the public to celebrate the coming of the Asian Lunar New Year in Sioux Falls. I want to give a special thank you to Zon Tran and the Vietnamese American Association of Sioux Falls for partnering with Active Generations to hold this fabulous festival. There was plenty of food, traditional festival dances, cultural dances, martial arts exhibitionS, live cultural music and lots of entertainment surprises to help Sioux Falls ring in the Lunar New Year – Year of the Dog – 2018. Spring is right around the corner! One of the community’s favorite spring events is also just around the corner. The 17th Annual Gourmet Guys will be on Sunday, April 29th from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm. This is our largest special event raising funds for all of the programs and activities that Active Generations offers for adults and their families in our community. At the time I am writing this article, the dedicated Gourmet Guys committee is working hard to recruit over 30 wonderful community men to serve as Chefs. Tickets are for sale at the Information Window or you can call 336-6722 to purchase them over the phone. The cost is $35 per ticket for members, $40 per ticket for non-members, or $45 at the door on the day of the event. We hope you are available to support this outstanding event displaying the culinary excellence of our local amateur chefs who volunteer their services and donation of food. Our community sponsors, chefs, participants, and volunteers make this an outstanding event for our organization. Please join us for an afternoon of great food, wonderful conversation, and generous financial support for our organization.
