Santa Ana, CA – It was a good turnout for the Headquarter Banquet.
The purpose of the banquet was to welcome the new elected board officers and turn over past paperwork and financial records to them.
The banquet transition usually held once every two years after the election of the Headquarter, Headquarter Men’s Department, Headquarter Women’s Department, and Headquarter Youth Department.
For this year’s banquet, there were approximately 130 to 150 people. Most of the people who came to the banquet were LEC members. They all traveled from Northern California, Central Valley California, Southern California, and Las Vegas, Nevada.
All the seats in the church sanctuary of Lao Evangelical Church of Santa Ana were evidently taken. The service program lasted about 3 hours, but it was a well-planned event. Many of the LEC singers were invited to sing during the banquet. The sermon was giving by one of the LEC members Dr. Paul Lo who is the first Hmong judge in the United States currently serving in the County of Merced, California.
But in spite of the absence of many members coming to join this year’s banquet, there would most likely be another time. Thus, don’t miss out the next chance of the upcoming banquet in the year of 2016.
