Poppy Memorial to Highlight Memorial Day Observance

Since World War I, the poppy has come to be known as a symbol of remembrance.  On Monday, May 29, a Poppy Memorial, an art installation created by students of the Never Fading Poppy Project, will be the centerpiece of the Town’s Memorial Day Ceremony, to be held at Emery Park.

The Never-Fading Poppy Project is a student-led youth team of CAAL, the Chinese American Association of Lexington. NFPP has sent thousands of handmade cards to local veterans, spreading happiness and appreciation of art. Their co-leaders, Jodie Chen, Candice Lin, and Lucy Wei, will speak at the ceremony, describing their work and their installation of poppy art.

The Play “Interconnect” at Cary Hall was a success!

Audiences came to Cary Hall with a full house on Saturday April 8 and watched the play “Interconnect” with great interest and enthusiasm. The 6-act play with 200 performers told the stories of the Chinese American community in Lexington and the Greater Boston area. Their trailblazer initiatives and spirit of love have built connections and communities in times of crisis. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Chinese American Association of Lexington. This is the first event that kicks off the celebration of Patriot’s Day, and the May AAPI Heritage Month.

Here are some audience comments after the show:

“Thank you so much! I will read the script with great interest and for a fuller understanding of what was happening. It was wonderful to sit among so many people understanding Chinese so fluently, and to hear it spoken in so many contexts. (My husband and I have a daughter adopted from China at the age of 1, who is now 29, and grew up in Lexington).” – Pat Moyer

“Thank you for inviting us to last night’s performance. It was a great historical exhibition of how CAAL evolved from a minor volunteering group of Chinese Americans to present day a very heavy weight organization in the Lexington community Thanks to you all for putting so much time and energy into an important show. I invited a neighbor from Brookhaven to go with us, she was very impressed with the performance. CAAL, you have come a long way!!! Thanks to people like you.” – Sophia Ho

“I thoroughly enjoyed the show–I didn’t realize, Nick, that you not only wrote and directed, but also starred in it. I’m glad it was such a success.” – Suzanne Adams
