Please join us as we celebrate Joe’s many “architectural interventions” which have contributed to Chinatown/Strathcona, Vancouver and Canada. This will be an informal evening showcasing Joe’s work, and this year with a particular reference to the Lore Krill Co-op, 239 East Georgia Street, which is a model of affordable housing and design in Chinatown. We will also be offering video clips of the Chinese Canadian Historical Society AGM Dinner March 2012 honouring Joe, featuring the Assaulted Fish Pan Asian Comedy Troupe and Prof. Jan Walls’ clapper tale salute to Joe.

Please pass on this invitation directly to others who you think would like to attend this special gathering. We are very appreciative to the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden for hosting the evening and providing light refreshments in collaboration with the Chinese Canadian Historical Society of BC.. If you have any questions, please contact Helen Lee or Hayne Wai .Please note that there is a Vancouver Canucks home game that evening which will impact parking.
