I saw Will Healey (left photo) in the GBM this morning, studying up on Chinese culture. I saw Tom Durkin in the GBM early Sunday morning, sampling Chinese cuisine as he prepared to depart for a Bejing Packers game somewhere in the far east.
You’ll see both these world travelers (Will is the emcee, Tom is one of the organizers) at the Northfield Middle School Auditorium this Saturday, Jan. 26, because the Northfield Rotary Club is hosting a ‘To China & Back’ fundraiser featuring Gao Hong and the Chinese Dance Theater.
A Chinese food dinner will be served at the event, so come hungry.
The Northfield Rotary Club and the Northfield Public Schools Community Services Division are proud to present a Chinese New Year Celebration featuring Ms. Gao Hong, world renowned Pipa Soloist.
