As a life Member of the Arcadia Chinese Association, I am very proud of the Association’s accomplishments and contributions to Arcadia and out neighboring cities. My wife Barb and I are also honored t have the members of the Association as our friends.
With a talented Board of Directors and many hard-working volunteers, the Association has become very involved in the life of our city. The Association sponsors outstanding annual events in Arcadia such as Law Day, the Chinese New Year’s Party for seniors, and the Recognition Luncheon for the city’s employees. The Association also hosts fun-filled parties and dinners throughout the year. These events, and many others, help promote inter-cultural understanding and civic virtue.
Arcadia is blessed with an exceptional diversity of residents. As a member of the Arcadia City Council since 1996, I have always pursued the goal of promoting mutual respect and bringing our many cultures together in the spirit of friendship and cooperation. The Association has helped achieve that goal.
Thank you for all your help. You have helped to make Arcadia a wonderful and friendly city.

I am pleased to recognize the Arcadia Chinese Association on the occasion of their 24th Anniversary. This marks twenty four years of ACA’s meaningful involvement with and for the City of Arcadia. They have contributed generously in terms of time and money to nearly every service organization now supporting our residents. They have made substantial contributions to the Arcadia Unified School District, the Arcadia Educational Fund, the Red Cross, the Chamber of Commerce, and other organizations too numerous to mention. Their membership can be found at every City event; always dependable, ever willing to assist. The ACA is a valuable asset to this community, and I am delighted to acknowledge their innumerable contributions on this special occasion.

I remember when we first presented AHS Chinese Parents’ Booster Club to the high school principal and the council PTA, we encountered tremendous resistance and opposition. At the end we were able to prevail.
Arcadia Chinese Association probably faced the same obstacles throughout the years. We had to work extra hard to have a presence in the community. Over the last 20 plus years, ACA has established itself and plays significant role in our community now.
These achievements are earned through all the hard works by volunteering officers, board members and membership at large. I am very proud to be a part of this organization. I wish you the continuous success in any of your future endeavors.
John Wuo (Mayor, September 2005)記得亞市高中華裔家長會草創之初,我們在學校及家長委員會中經過了許多折衝,終能獲得只成功.
華人協會在過去也許也經歷了許多困難,我們必須放入更多的努力才能在社區裡出頭. 20多年來華 協在社區裡已生根立足而且擔當非常重要的角色.
The Arcadia Chinese Association is an important participant in the City of Arcadia. They provide our community with a means to continue to introduce and unite our diverse population. The Arcadia Chinese Association has been a good citizen and always available to lend a helping hand to city needs and causes.

Arcadia Chinese Association signifies volunteerism, community service, pride and commitment. For many years, these talented and enthusiastic people have worked hard to create a connection with Arcadians of all cultures and ethnic backgrounds. Through community involvement and services, the member of the Association have enhanced our city by sharing their customs and heritage, helping create a stronger bond between the Asian and American cultures, and by becoming not only neighbors, but also friends. The Arcadia Chinese Association is a premier services club that gives a voice to its members through community involvement and political awareness.

The mission of the Arcadia Chinese Association has long been to help new immigrants become part of our community. From what I have observed, they have done their job well and without much fanfare.
I have lived in Arcadia for most of my adult life, and I know that Arcadians are justifiably proud of our community. The Arcadia Board of Education wants to thank you for your generous spirit.
Thank you to the Arcadia Chinese Association for playing their part well.

Please relay to the ACA my personal appreciation for the friendship that has been given to me and the Arcadia Police Department over the years. The ACA has remained a steady companion to us and is made up of people who individually and collectively care about our community. ACA members have been active in all aspects of our community life, from their initiatives to improve and support our schools, assistance to the police and fire departments and other city departments, their involvement in the business community and interaction in social gatherings. Each member has demonstrated commitment to helping others and to being a friend. Arcadia is fortunate to have such a caring and committed group of citizens who are willing to take on important challenges and give of themselves. I count myself as blessed by your friendship.
