Taiwanese Association of American
Washington Chapter, Inc.
I am most pleased to extend warm greeting to all
gathered for the opening celebration of Taiwanese American
We in Maryland are deeply fortunate and proud to
have a thriving Taiwanese American community that has contributed
immeasurably the economic, cultural, and social enrichment
of our society. This
celebration of Taiwanese cultural heritage will provide
a unique opportunity to share these important contributions
to the entire metropolitan community.
You can be proud of the fine work your organization
has done in providing a forum in which to showcase Taiwanese
history, culture, and heritage.
I wish you an enjoyable celebration and continued
success and progress in the years to come.
