Community Participation

The CHSSC has actively participated in many community activities. Our flag unit has been leading the parade in LA Chinatown every Chinese New Year since 1976, and has marched in the Alhambra Chinese New Year parade and the Bok Kai Festival in Marysville, California. The CHSSC co-sponsored the revival of the traditional Moon Festival. We have assisted with the Chinatown 10K Run, participated in the annual Lotus Festival, and the LA Conservancy’s 25th Anniversary Celebration at Union Station.

Chinese New Year Parade: To increase awareness of our efforts to promote Chinese American history, we have been leading the Lunar New Year Parade in the Los Angeles Chinatown every year since 1977. We team with youth Rotary clubs to carry American flags at the front of the procession before many thousands of Los Angeles spectators.
