MOCACITIZEN: Chinese American "Returnees"
Sun, Nov 8, 2015 @ 2:30pm - 4:00pm

Born in New York City to Chinese immigrant parents in 1900, Poy Gum Lee and his family move to China in 1923. Armed with an architectural education from Pratt Institute, MIT, and Columbia University, he embarked on a professional career in China. Lee's story is far from unique. Census and immigration statistics suggest that between 15 and 20 percent of all Chinese American citizens in the first half of the twentieth century left the United States for China, most of them under the assumption that they would never permanently return to the land of their birth.  More Info

Gouverneur Health Center First "Open House," an introduction to its facility.

We are looking for Community Based Organizations, Agencies, and Providers to join us in this groundbreaking event taking place on Saturday, November 14th 2015 from 10am to 3pm.
This event is open to the public, and will include education, resources, activities, for the community on services by the hospital and surrounding partners.

Gouverneur opened its doors as a community hospital on October 5, 1885. The facility, located in an abandoned police station, was created to deal with the overcrowded, unsanitary living conditions that arose on the Lower East Side because of enormous population growth. Gouverneur served as an emergency hospital and ambulance station for the congested waterfront district, and worked in collaboration with Bellevue Hospital, located just two and a half miles away.
Today, Gouverneur has gone through a new modernization and renovation project, which includes a new ambulatory care pavilion and bed tower. This renovation has allowed for a spacious health facility with modern technology and enhanced features for quality care.

If you are interested in tabling for this event (no fee charged), please find the attached Registration Form, fill it out, and return it back to Gilda Gillim by Monday, November 9th 2015.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing back from you.

Chinatown Fair opened as a penny arcade on Mott Street in 1944. Over the decades, the dimly lit gathering place, known for its tic-tac-toe playing chicken, became an institution, surviving turf wars between rival gangs, changing tastes and the explosive growth of home gaming systems like Xbox and Playstation that shuttered most other arcades in the city. But as the neighborhood gentrified, this haven for a diverse, unlikely community faced its strongest challenge, inspiring its biggest devotees to next-level greatness.  More Info
