Volunteers were chopping, slicing and cooking all week in preparation for the Chinese New Year banquet at the Pleasant Hill Center of the San Francisco Bay area branch of the Taoist Tai Chi Society of the USA.
Over 70 members and guests attended from all over the San Francisco Bay area.
With the amount of rain that California has and is still receiving, we were fortunate that the day was sunny and warm for our celebration.
The significance of every item on the menu was described prior to each course.
After the delicious meal, there was a raffle and auction. Then, to help digest the food, we all did a set.
Thanks to all the volunteers who made this a very special start to the year of the rooster.
