CAAL Community Service and PVSA Information Seminar was held on July 31, 2022

For 39 years, CAAL has been supporting and encouraging younger generations to give back to the community, especially with the establishment of the Presidential Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) seven years ago. Members from CAAL Community Service Committee introduced twelve CAAL youth programs and a whole range of opportunities to participate in community service that are organized, sponsored or recognized by CAAL, in collaboration with the town and community organizations. Student leaders shared their volunteering experiences with the students and parents.

Here are the 2022 CAAL PVSA Seminar presentation video and slides, and PVSA application forms. Please submit your application between Sept 1-Sept 30, 2022.

書語萊镇 – Read Lexington



“Every time I walk into the reading room of the Lexington Cary Library, the big bookshelf with well arranged books always attracts my attention and curiosity. “Celebrate Lexington’s Authors – 150th Cary Memorial Library 1868 – 2018” is written on the wall behind the bookshelf. As it is well known, Lexington has more than 500 published authors who specialize in science, education, literature, history, economics, health, computer science and other fields, and the library houses more than 1,500 books written by Lexington residents, an invaluable resource for many of us.

ReadLexington focuses on the local writers who live amongst us. They are our neighbors, friends and mentors. They appear distant yet are so close to us. ReadLexington aims to promote books written by Lexingtonians, offers readers a glimpse of authors’ creative process and daily life, and encourages everyone to read their books. It is published in both English and Chinese.

Summer afternoon-summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language. – An International Episode Writer, Henry James. Let us pick a beautiful summer afternoon, and read a book by Lexingtonian together!

Here is the Chinese version
