Every year, AACI Seniors’ Lunar New Year Luncheon brings more than a hundred people together. This year, 140 seniors, their family members, as well as community members are expected to attend and celebrate the ‘Year of the Monkey’.

“This year’s event is exciting because we will not only be celebrating the Lunar New Year but also Chinese Valentine’s Day. Chinese Valentine’s day takes place fifteen days after the day of the Lunar New Year each year; so on February 22, 2016 this year. This event will also be the occasion to celebrate volunteers who donate their time to support AACI’s Moorpark Senior Center. We also can’t believe we’re celebrating 40 years of service! It is a time of great festivity!”, Senior Wellness Program Manager Pinki Fung said.Every participant will be entered into a free raffle for available prizes. Participants from the AACI Senior Center will do dance performances. Festivities will also include other cultural dancing and singing.

AACI’s CEO Michele Lew & Board Chair Patrick Kwok will attend the event to celebrate with seniors, many of whom have been attending the Senior Center for 10 or more years. A celebration to commemorate the Moorpark Senior Wellness Center’s 40 year anniversary is planned for Fall 2016.
