I’m so happy to extend my warmest greeting to all the participants of the 2011 Lunar New Year Festival in one of the most beautiful places in the world, heavenly Sedona!
This festival gives the thriving Korean community of Sedona the perfect opportunity to share the rich Korean heritage, art, and food with their neighbors. But what is particularly meaningful is that the goal of this event is to raise money for a very noble cause. Your support and generous donations will be contributed to the fund for raising a Korean War Veterans Memorial Monument in Verde Valley.
As Sedona is the home to several Korean War veterans, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you for your courage and dedication which will forever serve as a reminder to people across the globe of the true value of democracy. We will always be indebted to you.
Thank you, Sedona Korean-American Association, for hosting this wonderful festival, and helping to spread Korean cultural awareness, and pride! Your efforts to raise money for the Korean War Veterans Memorial are deeply appreciated. Please, everyone, don’t hold back with your donations, we need to remember our veterans and honor them everyday.
I hope all your dreams flourish in the future, and may you forever keep the exquisiteness of Korean culture in your hearts and minds.
Happy Lunar New Year!
