In the early 1920’s, young Oakland Chinese boys and men formed a social club called the Chinese 9. They played sandlot baseball and were sponsored by Maxwell Hardware Store. Later, they joined in regional baseball games and in 1926 became Wa Sung Athletic Club. These semi-pro players had many admiring Chinese fans.

HARMONY

With the month of May proudly celebrated as Asian American and Pacfic Islander Heritage Month and to be part of the collective hope in the air to reverse the ongoing hardship challenges being experienced in Oakland Chinatown, I thought to send a positive message through the front window of our Wa Sung Community Center located at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center. To show an uplifting community message by using 70 colorful Chinese red envelopes as the background and had a calligrapher artistically write a custom scroll depicting in Chinese the word HARMONY along with a message: May Oakland Chinatown be peaceful and harmonious.
Check it out when you're in Oakland Chinatown, and coincidentally there were WS members (Jessica, Lily, Jennifer, Linyi and Cindy ) that saw me unveiling the HARMONY artwork May 28th in our Wa Sung office !!!! ~ Karen Dea

Lucky Wa Sung Junior League young adults enjoyed a picnic on August 8th @ San Leandro Marina Park! There, they enjoyed (with masks and social distancing) free food, boba, sport activities, along with get-to-know-you games and all had a blast!!

Magician and Balloon Artist, Perry Yan, was asked to join for a portion of the event. He ended up making everyone really fun balloon characters! He ended with an engaging magic trick that left everyone stupefied!! He was the highlight of the afternoon!

Overall, the Junior League Marina Hangout Picnic was indubitably successful! Everyone had an amazing time.
