International Club Hosts Chinese New Year for GA Community
On Friday, February 8, the International Club celebrated the Chinese Lunar New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, with the entire Gilmour community. According to Chinese tradition, 2019 is the Year of the Pig, which signifies prosperity, peace and progress.
During the celebration, the International Club prepared traditional Chinese New Year dishes, snacks and desserts and shared traditional Chinese activities such as calligraphy and lantern-making. This celebration helped the International Club to spread the joy and good fortune of the new year with the entire community and helped the Gilmour students and faculty become more familiar with the Chinese culture.
The International Club thanks all the people who participated in the celebration and looks forward to next year's Chinese New Year celebration!
