爆竹声中一岁除, 春风送暖入屠苏。千门万户曈曈日, 总把新桃换旧符。

春节(农历新年)是一年之岁首。春节是个辞旧迎新,欢乐祥和,亲朋好友欢聚的节日。也是我们华人最重要的传统节日。由于疫情不减,加华会理事会不得不取消一年一度的春节联欢晚会。 在农历牛年(辛丑年)即将到来之际, 加华会(RCCA) 理事会全体理事给大家拜个早年。 向全体加华会会员及家人致以春节的祝福。

恭祝大家身体健康, 家庭幸福, 事业顺利, 牛年吉祥!
春节快乐!

Chinese New Year, the year of the Ox, falls on 12th of February, 2021. Chinese New Year, also known as Spring Festival and Lunar New Year, is the most prominent and celebrated festival among Chinese people and is the time when all family members get together seeing off the old year and greeting the new year. Due to the lockdown restrictions, we regret to inform you that this year's RCCA Chinese New Year celebration party has been cancelled. We are all hoping that in 2022 we can see the return of our traditional celebrations.
May this Chinese New Year bring you and your family happiness, wealth, and good health!
 

Happy Chinese 牛Year!
RCCA Board of Directors

Dear RCCA members: 

 

                                                                                                         

 

‘Tis the season…
for good friends and family to come together and enjoy some holiday merriment.

 

 

 

But, this year, the global pandemic has stretched into its ninth month, and we are facing a Christmas like no other. With Covid-19 cases on the rise, we regret to inform you that this year's RCCA C With Covid-19 cases on the rise, we regret to inform you that this year’s RCCA Christmas party has been cancelled.

The pandemic has put a strain on all of us and our members have been affected in very real and different ways. There is no doubt this holiday season will be different, but we can still celebrate, feel the holiday spirit and make it special with our loved ones. Different doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing. If we look at it another way, the pandemic does offer opportunities to make this holiday a season to remember in new ways.

Thanks to the rapid advances in medical research, the COVID-19 pandemic will be under control so we can once again give everyone we love a big hug in person. Until then, please stay apart now so we can all celebrate good health together, when it is safe. 

Look forward to the day when this whole social distancing thing is over. All of our RCCA Saturday wellness group activities will be resumed soon and we can be together again!

Wishing each of you and your family a healthy holiday season and for a bright and positive 2021!

Wear a mask, wash your hands often and maintain physical distance.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

 

RCCA Board of Directors

 

亲爱的加华会会员们,

下周就是圣诞佳节了。由于COVID-19疫情日益严重,为响应政府的严格防疫规定及考虑会员们的健康安全,加华会理事会兹决定取消我们一年一度的圣诞新年晚会。

毫无疑问,这个假期对于我们很多人来说将是和以往不同的。不同不一定是件坏事。虽然疫情严重,我们其实还是可以和家人一起度过一个丰富多彩的,别样的假期。圣诞节和新年标志着寒冬已至,病毒更加活跃。也意味着节日旅行和聚会高潮到来,病毒传播的机会更多。希望我们每一个人都高度警惕和预防,安全度过这个特殊的假日。圣诞节过后,我们马上迎来崭新的2021年。无论2020有多么特别,疫情终会结束。 相信接下来的每一天都会更好。让我们一起迎接全新的开始,辞旧迎新!

疫苗已经在望,期待明年孩子们能安全地回校上学,我们海外游子能回乡看望年迈的父母,居家一年的人们能出门周游世界,我们加华会周末的太极,舞蹈,健康小组等活动能很快恢复,我们朋友们能再次欢聚一堂。

期待春暖花开,阴霾尽快散去,大家能轻轻松松走出家门,早日回归健康正常生活的那一天!

加华会理事会全体理事衷心祝福您及您的家人圣诞平安幸福,新年健康快乐!

Michael Qing's story (Michael is the son of Dr. Chao Yang and  Dr. Hairuo Qing, long time members of the Regina Chinese Canadian Association )

Using a butterfly stroke perfected over years of practice, Michael Qing powers through the water and leaves a trail of fellow competitors in his wake.

The picture comes from the 2019 Special Olympics Summer World Games in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, where Qing brought home four medals – three gold and one bronze – in the 800m and 1500m freestyle, the 4 X 100m medley relay butterfly, and the 400m freestyle categories, respectively. "It felt amazing to win Three Golds and one Browns," said Qing, 26.

"It was great to represent my country and province."

Results like these have become routine for Qing during his 15 years as a swimmer, from his first time competing in the Canada Summer Games in 2005 to the present, at his home town Regina.

 

“Michael Qing is the most decorated athlete in Special Olympic Saskatchewan history”, quoted from 50th Special Olympics Anniversary Champion Award presented on April 12, 2019 in Saskatoon (Picture 8). Qing also represented Canada at the Special Olympics World Games in Shanghai 2007, in Athens 2011, and in Los Angeles 2015, where he won three gold, five silver, and one bronze medals in total.

All told, Qing boasts 17 long course and 15 short course Down Syndrome International Swimming Organization (DSISO) records. In the five DSISO World Championships he attended in Portugal 2008, Taipei 2010, Mexico 2014, Italy 2016, Canada 2018, where Michael Qing won 39 gold medals in all of his events.

 

Qing also broken paraswimming Canadian records in the S14 classification - both short course and long course in the 50m, 100m and 200m butterfly events and the 800m and 1,500m freestyle swims. Qing won multi medals in 2011 and 2014 Pan-pacific paraswimming and many Can-Am paraswimming Championships in Canada and United States.

Qing was named the Saskatchewan Sport Awards youth male athlete of the year in 2008 and 2010 and was recognized as Special Olympics Canada's male athlete of the year in 2008, 2011 and 2014 with award presentation ceremonies in Toronto.

 

The next event for Qing will come at the 2020 DSISO World Game in Turkey.

Regardless of the success he has in the future, Qing is grateful for all that the sport of swimming has given to him. He tried a lot of sports growing up, from soccer to bowling, but finally found one in swimming that was right for him.

"It's a fun sport and a great way to stay in shape," Qing said. "It's taught me how to be myself and work hard to achieve my dreams. You receive a lot of support from your teammates and the province of Saskatchewan."
