You will never forget the appreciation on the faces of the families as they sit down to share a meal together. OCA Colorado will be serving breakfast on Saturday, November 12th.

General Election Meeting

Our annual General Election Meeting will be held 

October 15th at 12:30pm
Smoky Hill Library 
Room A
5430 S Biscay Cir, Centennial, CO 80015

We encouraged to join us for a brief meeting and vote for members that you would like to serve on the Board of Directors.  Please note, you must be a current member to vote. If you are not able to attend, please email us for a proxy form so we can make sure your vote counts.

Plus, after the meeting we will have a short discussion about The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan.

Synopsis: Four mothers, four daughters, four families whose histories shift with the four winds depending on who's "saying" the stories. In 1949 four Chinese women, recent immigrants to San Francisco, begin meeting to eat dim sum, play mahjong, and talk. United in shared unspeakable loss and hope, they call themselves the Joy Luck Club. Rather than sink into tragedy, they choose to gather to raise their spirits and money. "To despair was to wish back for something already lost. Or to prolong what was already unbearable." Forty years later the stories and history continue. With wit and sensitivity, Amy Tan examines the sometimes painful, often tender, and always deep connection between mothers and daughters. As each woman reveals her secrets, trying to unravel the truth about her life, the strings become more tangled, more entwined. Mothers boast or despair over daughters, and daughters roll their eyes even as they feel the inextricable tightening of their matriarchal ties. Tan is an astute storyteller, enticing readers to immerse themselves into these lives of complexity and mystery.

About the Author:
Amy Tan (born February 19, 1952) is an American writer whose works explore mother-daughter relationships and the Chinese-American experience. Her best-known work is The Joy Luck Club, which has been translated into 25 languages. In 1993, the book was adapted into a commercially successful film.
