Chinese Lunar New Year Celebration

In 1968, the Chinese Lunar New Year was on Jan. 31st, which was a Monday. The Chinese Club at the University of Illinois celebrated the Lunar New Year on the Saturday before. Since I was active in the club, which included playing basketball on the weekends and participating in all international celebrations (such as performing at each year at the “International Fair”), I helped to set up quite a number of booths. Some of these sold different food items and some provided word puzzles for people to play. Janice played a Chinese fortunate teller at one booth. She had quite a number of “customers” - it was one of the most popular booths!
