USCPFA - SOUTHEAST FLORIDA CHAPTER - (formerly PALM BEACH COUNTY CHAPTER)

USCPFA - SOUTHEAST FLORIDA CHAPTER - (formerly PALM BEACH COUNTY CHAPTER)

Our name was changed at our April 30, 2011 meeting from "Palm Beach County, Florida Chapter" to "Southeast Florida Chapter" because we now have members in several Southeast Florida counties and we wanted to better reflect our membership with a more encompassing name.

We have at least 3 luncheon meetings a year to discuss projects and business activities. Our luncheons usually feature a presentation by various Chinese interests. We sponsor students with scholarships and recently contributed to our chapter member Marylou Brunetta's participation in the World Championship triathlon in Beijing, China being held in September, 2011. For several years we have sponsored a Chinese New Year GALA with performances by very talented local Chinese Artists which is directed by our chapter member, Monica Shang who is also one of the contributing artists.

FEBRUARY 17, 2018 - CHINESE NEW YEAR LUNCHEON

FEBRUARY 17, 2018 - CHINESE NEW YEAR LUNCHEON

We had our first meeting of the year to celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Dog.  We had 29 people attending.  Marty Penn gave a summary of the Year of the Dog for us and presented Marge with her own personal Dog.  Our menu was delightful and everyone had a good time opening their little gift baggies with various Year of the Dog items.  Following the meeting officers met to discuss future plans for presentations and other business matters concerning our scholarship program.  David Pena has agreed to form a program committee that will put together a list of possible program  and presentation suggestions for the Fall.

November 12, 2017 - LUNCHEON TO WELCOME SHANGHAI WOMEN'S FEDERATION

We were expecting a visit from a delegation of the Shanghai Women's Federation.  They were on a very strict schedule that was rudely interrupted by an illness causing their plane to be redirected.  Therefore, they did not arrive in time to attend the luncheon we had planned for them so our chapter could all meet with them.  It was a big disappointment for everyone attending.  We had an excellent meal that soothed our unexpected cancellation.
