Chinese New Year Celebration honored

The Carlisle Cultural Council announced that the 2005 Chinese New Year Celebration, initiated by dancer/choreographer Chiao Bin Huang of River Road, has been honored by the Massachusetts Cultural Council Gold Star Program for excellence in community arts and culture. Carlisle is one of six local cultural councils throughout the state to earn this honor. The 2005 program, which featured Chiao Bin Huang's ribbon dance and other examples of Chinese art and culture, was a family-oriented, community event that paid tribute to the cultural heritage of Carlisle's Chinese-American residents. In addition to the ribbon dance, Carlisle children performed a lion dance and attendees made paper lanterns. Chinese artists demonstrated Chinese brushwork and language characters.

The program was so well received that a second celebration took place in 2006.
