Our Association set up a HakkaWA stall at the Perth Chinese New Year Fair 2013 to join in the celebrations at James Street in Northbridge on 10 February 2013. The stall served to promote Hakka culture and history.
Our stall was open from 11 am to 6 pm. But work started from 8 am. Many members volunteered to help. A lot of interests were shown by the good crowd all day. Committee member Xiao Ye volunteered to perform Chinese painting and calligraphy.
Other volunteers include Dr Ching Tow Fah and Mrs, Honorary Advisor James Chong, President Keith Yong, Secretary-General Jonas Yong, Vice Presidents Lily Kong and Norman Chia, Assistant Treasurer Alan Yit, Assistant Secretary Chris SL Wong, Committee Member Mr and Mrs Dom Siew Tu, Past President Dato’ Yong and Datin Lilly.
2013年的珀斯中华新年文化节，公会在桥北的James St 开了一个西澳客家公会的特别摊位，以助发扬客家文化和历史。人群整天都很多，也对客家文化历史和我们公会很感兴趣。
