The cultural diversity in the Bay Area makes it one of the best places to live in the world. Cambodian-Americans are certainly significant pieces of that cultural tapestry. The preservation of the Cambodian culture is, therefore, vital. It is paramount not only to the collective community, but also to the Cambodian community, and the individual Cambodians themselves.

Happy New Year - Miss Kara Uy

Dear All,

Happy New Year! Hopefully everyone had a great Christmas and New Year holiday.

Now, let’s get back to our preparation and planning for the Cambodian New Year Festival 2008 (CNYF-08), "Year of the Rat 2552 B.E." We, the committee, would like to inform you that the CNYF-08’s facility has changed to a new location as indicated below, but the date will be still the same, Saturday, April 12, 2008.

Milpitas Community Center
457 E. Calaveras Blvd.,
Milpitas, CA 95035

Just like passed years, the committee started with a small number of people. And this year, I would like to let everyone know that we have a very outstanding member among us. That is Miss Kara Uy. Kara is a member of the SCCCWA, and she is very energetic. She works with passion in helping to drive the planning stage, and has been making very quick and effective decisions such as as finding and securing the new location and scouting for vocal talents.

This is only her first year in the committee, but she already is taking leadership positions as co-chair of the committee, involves in searching/evaluating facilities, retain live band and singer(s), and has also committed to manage the fashion show as part of evening entertainment program. If you want to be a model in the fashion show or know someone who wants to be a model, please contact her If you want to share your view with her, please come to the CNYF’s meeting on January 25. I am proud to work with her as co-chair of the committee.

Best regards,
Chanthoeun To
