The New Club in Town "y JuJyLe* Houston Chinese Basketball League Forming
The North Houston Chinese Association
A meeting of North Houston Chinese Association
was held October 21st in the home of Dr. and Mrs.
King Ong Lai. This new Chinese club was formed
about a year ago, beginning with a handful of
Chinese families who lived in the far north part
of Houston. It has now grown to over 40 families,
adding more and more members as their existence and
purpose is made known.
The club was organized to fulfill the common
needs of the Chinese who had moved to subdivisions
far north of Downtown Houston, such as those in the
FM 1960 area, the Woodlands, Atascocita etc. They
found it difficult to attend the meetings and func-
tions of other already established Houston Chinese
Organizations because of the long driving distance
from their homes and so decided to form their own
social and civic organization.
Meetings, which are held every other month in
the home of a member, consist of a program and an
"everyone bring a dish" dinner. One very important
purpose of the club is to provide cultural and edu-
cational programs for the children. Chinese lan-
guage classes in Mandarin are held every Saturday
at the Baptist Church in Greenwood Forrest. Ten
mothers take turns teaching. Children of new and
prospective members are welcome to attend. The Lan-
guage coordinator is Mrs. Gabriel Lin.
During the summer the club also sponsored
Chinese music and drama classes for the children.
They learned so well that they were invited to per-
form at Lamar Elementary School in May. Parents
and children of the NHCA will be involved in hosting
a giant multi cultural event at the Woodlands next
May. They had been contacted by Maggie Cates,
Coordinator of the Woodland's Art and Culture Pro-
Membership dues for North Houston Chinese
Association are only $ 2.00 per family and all
Chinese living in the area bounded by I 45 North
and US Hwy 59 North are invited to join. Call
Mrs. Grace Tsao for more information: 237-9288.
If you and your "basket ball buddies" would like
to formally organize as a team, there will soon be a
league for you to play in. The formation of the
"Houston Chinese Basketball League" is now underway.
It will follow official guidelines, using a time-
keeper, scorekeeper, 2 referees and NCAA rules. The
tentative date for the 1st game is Sunday, November
20th and there will be 10 weeks of league play.
If you are interested in joining, please call
as soon as possible:
