Celebrating a very important traditional holiday in the Chinese and Asian cultures, Fort Hays State University's Chinese Student Association invites students and community members to join their New Year celebration beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 6, in McMindes Hall's East Living Room on the FHSU campus.
The animal for the 2004 year is the monkey. Those who were born in 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980 and 1992 are encouraged to celebrate their animal year. Animals recur in a 12-year cycle.
A free Chinese buffet will be offered at the beginning of the party before the entertainment begins, during which, FHSU Chinese students will present many authentic performances, games, talent shows and a comedy which incorporates American students.
During the games and talent shows, audience members will have an opportunity to win "Lucky Money" that can later be redeemed for a prize.
The Chinese Student Association and the Student Government Association will sponsor the event.
The celebration is free and open to the students and the public.
