Association president and our sifu Jimmy Chan was very happy to get together with everyone again for this special event. He writes:

I want to thank all of our Chinese community leaders, our families, our friends, all the Chinese associations in our community, our distinguished guests, and our Chinese Consul Mr. Shan Chenglin for attending our annual “Montreal Chan Wing Chung Ton Association” and our “Montreal Gee How Oak Tin Association” Spring celebration banquet on Tuesday April 18th 2017.

A year passed by so fast. So many new visions and projects within our Chinese community! We need to work together with a common goal as one community. Our voice will be heard and our visions will be reached with our young Chinese generation to grow with our dreams together and make them to become reality. This year our Chan association scholarship committee have selected five ( 5 ) BEST scholarship winners according to their honor-roll achievements at their school and their marks from their school report cards.

The #1 best student as a scholarship winner is “Janet Chan” – A “Top A” student and achieved 2 outstanding honor rolls from McGill. She just got accepted to study as a medical student in McGill to become a medical doctor one day. Congratulation Janet Chan!

And the 2nd Best student selected by our scholarship committee is “Jonathan Chan”( my son ) with high mark honor roll student. His vision is to become an aerospace engineer one day. His outstanding focus and excellent commitment on all of his school projects were an inspiration to all his classmates, teachers and of course myself and our family. Jonathan was not able to attend the banquet and to receive his scholarship award due to his heavy projects and school work in school. His sister ( our daughter Elizabeth Chan) received his award on his behalf. She is in the center picture with me and Consul Mr. Shan Chenglin. Congratulations Jonathan and keep up the good work !

Have a fantastic great year with all good things come to everyone with good health, and see you all next year 2018!!!

PRESS RELEASE

Evenko and the Royal Highlanders of Canada are proud to present the Black Watch Military Tattoo, Saturday, 8 April 2017 3 o’clock PM at the Bell Centre.

The word ‘Tattoo’ comes from the early 17th century Dutch phrase, ‘doe den tap toe’ (‘turn off the tap’). Originally it was sounded by patrolling drummers and buglers to signal local taverns that it was time to stop serving beer and for soldiers to return to their encampments. The last time the Black Watch performed at a tattoo in Montreal was 25 years ago at the old Montreal Forum as part of the World Scottish Festival and Montreal’s 350th celebrations.

The modern tattoo builds on the early beat of the drum and blast of the bugle to create a spectacular variety show based largely on military pipes and drums and brass bands but sprinkled with other displays of military skills as well as civilian performing artists.

Timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, our tattoo will be a family-friendly matinee performance paying tribute to that formative First World War battle fought by the Canadian Corps where it has been said our young nation came of age. It will also help inaugurate the coming summer’s Montreal 375 and Canada 150 festivities, offering an excellent jump-start to what promises to be an exciting and busy Montreal program. It will re-acquaint all with the collective pride we share in our military heritage and community. And show- goers will even get a comedic interpretation of the 1919 Quebec beer referendum where the battle cry ”For Beer and Country!” might have been heard ringing through the streets.

In commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge this exciting show will feature thrilling displays of military and police pipes and drums, brass bands, and military skills. These fast-paced performances will be complemented by traditional French Canadian, Irish, English, and Scottish dancers representing the Fleur-de-Lys, Shamrock, Rose, and Thistle found in the flag of our fair city. The Mohawk community that occupied this area long before the founding of Montreal 375 years ago will be represented through their traditional dance.

The Montreal Chan Lion Dance Club will be there representing the more recent arrivals and their contributions to our country and community.

All profits generated through ticket sales will go to support the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services’ RESPECT campaign.
