New York Chapter Report

Release Date

Our schedule for the 2005-06 chapter meetings is very full. Our topics include, “Healing Herbs for Women: Affirmations as they can be applied to world peace, personal health, and healing for adults and children.” Our Annual Christmas meeting luncheon was held at the Academy of Science which unfortunately has just been sold. This is a fundraiser to cover most of our expenses for the coming year. In January, we celebrated Chinese New Year at the invitation of Ambassador Andrew Hsia of Taiwan. We attended an exhibit of Taiwanese and American Pastel Artists with a performance of Taiwanese opera. Future speakers will discuss contemporary Islam, world environmental problems, and we will hear presentations by the ambassadors from New Zealand and from Japan.

We look forward to welcoming PPSEAWA members to the meeting in May, including a reception to be held at Casey Bush’s New York apartment.
