Lunch and Learn



Hi, Everyone:

I am so excited that we have a wonderful LUNCH and LEARN coming up on 5/26/2018 (Saturday) from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The even will be held in Salvation Army (Denver Red Shield) at 2915 North High Street, Denver, Colorado.  There is plenty of parking on the street and also there is a parking lot the event guests can use for free. 

We have a very interesting topic this time and I think everybody will love to hear.  The topic is "Hi, Boss, Everything you need to know about running a business from insurance, banking, taxes, worker's comp, lease, and immigration (labor certification and I-9 etc)"   We have a panel of very dynamic and knowledgeable speakers whom you will find very interesting and informative.  We have sponsorship from Colorado Asian Restaurant Association that will provide the wonderful food to allow us to enjoy our amazingly delicious lunch. 
I call this a Happy Reunion of international food from China, Thailand, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, America, Italy and Mexico.  This is a free event for everyone and we have plenty of room to accommodate all our guests this time. 

Please come and join us for this fabulous event so you can enjoy eating, learning and of course meeting wonderful people.   The event starts at 11:30 a.m. but I and some board members will be there at around 9 a.m.  to help set up.  If you have time to extend your assistance, we can definitely use some help. 

Please RSVP by calling/texting Mac at 808-429-5867 or Wendy Tong at 720-626-3029.  You can also call OCA hotline and leave message at 720-663-1622 or our email at ocacolorado@gmail.com

I look forward to seeing all of you on 5/26/2018 at 11:30 a.m. at Denver Red Shield (Salvation Army). 

Best Wishes.
