Celebrating Chinese New Year at Sunrise Senior Living Community in Glen Ellyn

It was such a pleasure for Yu’s Garden Chinese Restaurant to be able to share a bit of Chinese culture, customs, traditions and sweets with the amazing residents of the Sunrise Senior Living Community in Glen Ellyn.

We discussed the art of brewing and sipping tea, as this has been a Chinese tradition passed on from generation to generation.  I was happy to share some of those customs with the residents.  We also talked about the Year of the Dragon and we brought special Year of the Dragon mystery boxes for everyone with fortune and almond cookies and Chinese green tea.  We wished everyone a year filled with happiness, good health, and prosperity.

A special thanks to everyone at Sunrise Senior Living Community, and especially to Mary and Kristin for organizing such a wonderful community event!
