Association for Public Affairs
is a great pleasure to extend my warm congratulations to
the Taiwanese American community of Northern California
on the occasion of the Taiwanese American Heritage Week
of May 12th to May 18th.
Taiwanese Americans across the United States have
made extraordinary contributions to our country in the arts,
sciences, business, law, and academia, and continue to contribute
immeasurably to our proud tradition of a multicultural society.
salute the dedicated community leaders, members and volunteers
who have gathered together from throughout Northern California
to produce the Taiwanese Cultural Festival in commemoration
of Taiwanese American Heritage Week.
also commend you for your extraordinary efforts to enhance
the link between Taiwan and the United States, to strengthen
relations among ethnic groups, and to promote cultural awareness
in the younger generations of Taiwanese Americans who will
make great contributions to our nation.
congratulations and best wishes to all my friends on this
