Wish you have a most prosperous and happiest New Year! We are also very delighted to report some of our activities since the last newsletter. First of all, we successfully hosted two truly exciting and memorable major events. One is the Beida PingPong Delegation visit led by former world champions, Geliang Liang and Wei Liu and Peking University Vice President Professor Yue Sulan in November last year. While it is absolutely a fruit of great team work of many board members and volunteers, special thanks to Yirui who not only took the major responsibility of taking care of the delegation but also invited all delegates to his home for an unforgettable Thanksgiving party. The other one is the annual holiday celebration dinner party on Jan. 20 primarily led by our young board members, Ren Chen and Zhaoyuan Ma. More than one hundred alumni and friends enjoyed wonderful food, performances, games, etc. You can see more detailed reports on both events in this issue of newsletter. Secondly, we also had some small but valuable activities particularly for our members. On Jan. 12, we had a small but homey birthday celebration for our former President and lifetime volunteer Qiyun Wang while her loving husband was in Beijing. Our President Mei Lu and our new and talented associate board member, Zhaoyuan Ma, took an initiative of organizing a new Host-A-Thanksgiving program for student alumni. 14 students went to 6 families. Many alumni asked us to do this program annually. Moreover, we continued our effort for the "I love my alma mater" donation campaign. In addition to 17 alumni who fulfilled their donations earlier, three alumni, Winnie Chen, Qifeng Yin and Yeqing Li, did so shortly after the recent call. We expect more responses to come. Over the past few months, we worked closely with other organizations to create a better community beyond the PUAA-DC family. For instance, we organized a hiking trip on Oct. 28 to the Shenandoah National Park and Luray Caverns with the China Society, Tsinghua University Alumni Association, CAST-DC, UCAPO, Hunan Association, George Washington University CSSA, and many others; On Jan. 26, we co-sponsored, with CAST-DC, the Wise Symposium by Professor Chunming Chen; On Feb. 24, we joined with the Nanjing University Alumni Association and Hope Chinese School co-sponsoring a performance by the China Broadcasting Performing Arts Group presented by Agis Center for Arts and Humanities in the Schlesinger Center. The performance is led by comedy star Kun Jiang and Hanlin Gong. Last but not least, we maintained and developed our long-term friendship with the Embassy of our motherland. As a tradition, Minister Chuanqin Xie invited the new board to the Embassy for a small banquet only for the PUAA-DC on Nov. 3, On Jan. 20, 2007, the Education Office of the China Embassy invited us to a forum for feedbacks on the recent policies on Overseas Scholars and professionals returning to China. Yirui attended the forum and gave valuable advice. With the unity of board members and support of all members, we are determined to make the year of 2007 another exciting and fruitful year. The immediate next event will be the 2007 Ping Pong Open. As one of the top teams in 2006, PUAA-DC team will be in Group A with 8 best teams which will compete on March 24. All Ping Pong players and fans are welcome to join this game. Best Wishes, Board of PUAA-DC

6 ISSUE 2 PUAA-DC New Year Party PAGE 6 The PUAA-DC hosted its annual holiday celebration dinner party on Jan. 20 evening at the New Fortune Restaurant in Maryland to welcome the Year of 2007 and Golden Pig. More than one hundred alumni and friends enjoyed wonderful food, performances, games, as well as the great family atmosphere. Vice consul general Jianqing Zhang,First Secretary and Consul Mr. Sining Li, and Office Director Mr. Jiang Zhao from the China Embassy attended the party and gave warm greetings representing out mother country. On the day, people would not wait to participate in the party and arrived at the restaurant very early. Our former board member Wei Cao (also a new mom) and Ren Chen welcomed everyone at the registration table with big smile. Many people were busy taking photos to keep the precious memory. Before the scheduled starting time, the restaurant was filled with alumni, family members and friends. Different from the past new year celebrations, the party this year was primarily organized by two of the youngest board members, Ren Chen and Zhaoyuan Ma. With their talent and young spirit, this party was full of energy and new faces. They were also the MCs. They started the program by calling for participants to identify them by different decades. The alumni covered the big range of graduates of 40s to 21Century. Beyond the gap of ages, people enjoyed talking with each other so much that they even forgot the feeling of hunger. President Mei Lu gave a warm welcome to all participants. She

7 ISSUE 2 PAGE 7 recognized all the board members, past presidents and special guests. Vice consul general Jianqing Zhang gave a greeting representing the China Embassy. Many more staff from different departments of the Embassy also joined the party. 新年联欢晚会节目表演 The performances including singing, Chinese traditional instruments, Chinese comedy talk show (Xiang4 Sheng1), poem reading, etc., were very truly unforgettable. The first performance was done by two students from the University of Maryland. After that, an alumna sang two beautiful solos. Then, Dr. Chiming Wei s daughter offered two pieces of professional level Chinese traditional instrument, Gu3 Zheng1. A Chinese comedy show talk My Campus Life by two young alumni Zhaoyuan Ma and Jinxin Wang brought everyone back to the life in Beida campus with great humor. The most memorable performance was the poem reading. Graduates of different decades read typical poems from their ages starting from the 40s, to 50s, 60s, up to the 21 st Century. Among the readers were many current or former board members including Qiyun Wang, Shuwang Liu, Yirui Mu, Mei Lu, Jing Bai, etc. It was a truly special experience for all participants. The final program was identifying the campus through pictures. While alumni all lived on the campus, it was quite challenging for people to make them right since there were so many changes over the years. In addition to the spiritual joy, people also enjoyed the delicious food. Many people even won door prizes which were donated by alumni and friends. All participants left the party with great fulfillment and started looking forward to the party next year.
