溫哥華余風采堂 清明不忘祭先僑









 




二○一六年的清明節落在四月四日,是中國人慎終追遠、拜祭先人的日子。台山人的傳統習俗是在清明節前去掃墓,拜祭先人。 很多堂所會館也于清明節前去墳場拜祭先人,但他們並不是因為習俗使然,而是為了方便大家時間的安排。

拜祭先人是後人對先人的追思和懷念,重在感恩先人的付出和貢獻,拜祭的時間不是十分重要,選擇清明節給先人掃墓是中國人的傳統, 不是說一定要在清明節才能給先人掃墓。現在大家的工作都十分繁忙,衹要有心,隨時都可以去給先人掃墓, 表示自己對先人的哀思和懷念。

三月廿七日上午十一時,溫哥華天氣多雲時陰,有颳風,好在沒有降雨。 當日余風采總分堂有十五人來到山景墓園拜祭先僑,與其它多個僑團輪流使用「安魂亭」,熱鬧而不亂。

出席公祭活動的包括加拿大余風采總堂主席余根洙伉儷、顧問余錫儒伉儷、顧問余詠本伉儷、 副財政余錦文伉儷,新當選溫哥華余風采堂主席余耀祥、副主席余啟康、顧問余榮燊、書記余柏寧、 新當選財政余開儀、核數主任余漢銳、婦女組主任余小玲等。

Chinese Society Legacy Program Presentations










City of Vancouver Planning staff members Helen Ma and Bonnie Ma presented an update on the Vancouver Chinatown Society Legacy Program, a proposed $36 million rehabilitation of 12 Chinese Societies heritage buildings, at our April 9th monthly board meeting.

The presentation include an overview of the program and the proposed implementation plan to our board members, they also handed out a bi-lingual program brochure to us for our reference.

Vancouver City Council recently approved $3.6 million to kick start the program.

"The Legacy program provides an opportunity to anchor change in Vancouver Chinatown and create a lasting cultural legacy that our city, province and nation can be proud of for generations to come."

The twelve Society - owned buildings are over 100 years old and in need of major building upgrades. Maintaining and upgrading these heritage buildings is a significant challenge for the Societies. Without a sustainable, long - term plan to renew the buildings and their operations, the buildings will soon reach a point where they will be unsafe and uninhabitable and their legacies will be lost forever.

This report describes the Chinese Society Legacy Program including a magnitude of cost for the rehabilitation of the Society buildings and a fundraising and partnership strategy to approach senior levels of government and other potential funding partners.

余靖忠襄公寶誕


















六月十一日中午,加拿大余風采總堂舉行慶祝余靖忠襄公寶誕。今年是忠襄公的一○一六週年寶誕, 余氏宗親齊聚一堂,共同歡慶。

加拿大余風采總堂主席余根洙、 嘉賓及余氏宗親們參加了簡單而隆重的祭祖儀式。

總堂主席余根洙致詞說,宗親齊聚一堂, 呈現出堂所團結、友好、親密合作的體現。每年定期能夠舉辦始祖的寶誕紀念是每位宗親長期以來大力支持。

余根洙主席然後說: 宋仁宗朝代的名臣余靖,是余氏的始祖,公元一○○○年生於韶州府城,二十四歲一舉高中進士,初授官為贛縣尉, 很快又升為新建(江西南昌縣)知縣。三十四歲入朝延做官任秘書監。 四十三歲升為右正言(諫官),後又出使遼國,使當時宋、 遼西夏三足鼎立的局面得以和解,為鞏固宋代天下立下了不可磨滅的豐功偉績。

余靖是嶺南繼張九齡後又一顯赫的朝延重官, 他與張九齡一樣剛正不阿,廉潔自重。與範仲淹、 歐陽修、尹沂被尊為宋朝“四賢”,與歐陽修、王素、 蔡襄被稱為“四諫”,後來官於工部尚書。公元一○六五年病逝於江寧(今南京)。 廣東省廣州曾有“八賢堂”,余靖就是八賢之一。

余靖是一個清官。他率眾平亂後,把皇帝賞賜的財物,全數轉贈給當地軍民, 保持自己兩袖清風的本色。 調任時,他所帶走的不是成箱累笈的金銀珠寶衣服,而是農耕所需的種子, 帶往新任地發展農業生產。他又是一個愛民如子的好官。 甚得民心,公元一○六○年在邕州「今南寧」離任另就時, 百姓哭道相送,後世有遠識的人建祠樓紀念他。在韶關市,有一座明代跨街而建的風采樓。 在廣州曾有八賢祠余靖受祀其中;在廣東境內所有名賢祠風采堂,都是為紀念他而建的。

余根洙主席繼續說,“下星期父親節就即將到來,現在祝福全天下偉大的父親「父親節」快樂!”

温哥華「余馬」宗親會重遊哈里遜溫泉




















夏日正炎炎,温哥華「余馬」宗親會及劍風體育會於八月十四日(星期日)攜手合辦了輕鬆的「卑詩省大溫地區一日遊」。 今年馬居雄世表、馬舜賢師父及余瑞芝夫人為我們安排了全日的行程和節目, 包括僱用了一部豪華旅遊巴士、安排了膳食早餐、午餐和晚餐地點。

遊覽景點是著名的「哈里遜温泉」(Harrison Hot Springs), 其實主要目的就是去看看哈里遜湖( Harrison Lake), 哈里遜温泉的源頭,以及少不了要一嘗附近黑森林餐廳(The Black Forest) 的美食等。

當日風和日麗,「余馬」宗親、劍風體育會成員、家屬及朋友等在名閣海鮮酒家停車場集合, 一共有五十五名參加者,當中包括了十四位温哥華余風采堂參與的乘員, 二十位劍風體育會以及二十一位馬氏宗親會的參與者。 上了巴士後馬氏世表提供了每位一瓶水,及任由選擇一個剛焗烤出爐的雞尾包、菠蘿包或叉燒包當早餐。

我們的巴士司機在一號高速公路駕駛時,突然發現了靠近阿伯茨福德(Abbotsford)公路前面大塞車, 這位醒目司機就決定繞道而行。 途中我們在新娘面紗瀑布休息區停留了一刻,照照相等。

巴士經過阿加西斯 (Agassiz) 農田小鎮後,便進入被哈里遜湖擁吻著的溫泉區, 雖仍然充滿小鎮風情的樸素,遠離喧囂的哈里遜卻是西岸的渡假天堂。 下了車後我們就在哈里遜湖前合影留念,其次是步行到附近的黑森林餐廳享用午餐。

馬居雄世表預早已替我們在這黑森林餐廳訂了位,他特別推介這餐廳的德國特色招牌菜 — 秘制德式鹹豬手(pork hock), 當侍者送上豬手餐時,看起來雖然算不上優雅、但它肉嫩多汁、與傳統的酸菜、紅捲心菜葷素搭配、椰菜花、 胡蘿蔔及鍋炸土豆條,鮮而不膩, 味道也真的很不錯,比一些餐廳的德式烤豬手都好吃呢。果然名不虛傳! 吃過午餐後,就是我們的自由活動時間了,在那埵釩雃h精品店供流覽,但我們決定沿茈倣R的湖邊散散步、 呼吸些新鮮空氣、看看山水美景、欣賞浪漫絕美的沙灘及探索哈里遜溫泉的源頭等。

下午二時大家前往司機指定候車處集合登車,在回溫哥華的路上,我們停下來購買一些「非轉基因」(non-GMO) 的智利域出產著名甜玉米 ( Chilliwack sweet corn)。 隨後繼續前往「智利域河谷天然蜂蜜糖漿店」(Chilliwack River Valley Natural Honey Ltd), 品嚐店裡面十多種不同口味的天然蜂蜜,或購買一些天然花粉,蜂膠等等各種相關產品。 以及享受阿伯茨福德「樺木酪農場」(Abbotsford Birchwood Dairy Farm)的香醇冰淇淋, 鮮奶及其它農場產品。

回程中,一號高速公路繼續有交通堵塞及封閉,交通警員在現場指揮及疏導交通, 巴士司機再次繞道,沿茯加邊界「零號」公路往西行,經過太平洋公路邊境,直接返回到温哥華。 接荂A大家在名閣海鮮酒家享用豐富美味的晚餐。

在此感謝馬居雄世表、馬舜賢師父及余瑞芝夫人,為我們安排了美好的一日遊!

Vancouver's Yees and Mahs - 2016 Day Trip




















David Ma had suggested back in March we resume the summer day trip tradition the Yee and Mah Societies used to co-organize every year until 2011.

So after much planning we decided to repeat a favorite destination - Harrison Hot Springs on Sunday August 14, 2016.

En-route we made a stop at Bridal Falls before arriving at Harrison at 11:10. We took a group photo with our back to the lake.

There were 14 from the Yee Fung Toy, and about 20 each from the Mah Society and the Kin Fung Athletics Club.

Then it is lunch at the Black Forest Restaurant serving German cuisine where the Pock Hock entree at $19.95, the house specialty, was served to those who had pre-ordered. It was a large order of food so Betty wisely asked for it to shared between the two of us.

The server came back with the meat cut in two, plus an empty plate. We barely finished all the food.

After lunch we walked by the Harrison Hotel and on to the spring source, from where the Hotel and later the public pools get their hot spring water. Before returning to the bus at 2 pm, we walked along the shore to the man made lagoon.

On the way back to Vancouver, we stopped for us to buy non-GMO Chilliwack corn at $8.50 for 12, then another stop to taste and buy honey, and one more at Birchwood Farms for ice cream made on the premises where we saw the cows being herded for milking (viewing from 3 - 5 pm). It was a glorious day with few clouds but not too hot.

Everything went off smoothly, everyone stayed on time and the only thing that was not planned for was a road accident on the #1 Highway which we knew about and had to avoid with an interesting detour via 0th Avenue, barely on the Canadian side of the border.

We were only about 30 minutes late for our group dinner at the Happy Valley Restaurant in Vancouver on Lougheed near Rupert. After dinner everyone went home happy.

《余家之主》話劇在加藝劇院公演

美國華裔女作家余秀菊(Lauren Yee) 創作的話劇《余家之主》( King of the Yees)於1013日至22日在加藝劇院上演。

故事以余秀菊的父親為主線,講述了近二十年來她的父親如何推動余風采堂在三藩市華人社區的發展歷史。 這個在美國西部淘金熱時期成立的華人家族社團,在歷經一百多年風雨後似乎已經不再符合這個時代的潮流。 而劇中「父親」的突然失蹤,也令「女兒」踏上尋找華人社區精神的征程。 這個以傳統僑社宗親社團為背景,描述父女之間關係及自我認同的劇作, 將帶領觀眾穿越文化、國家和家庭的藩籬,展開發現自我的旅程。

美西總顧問余海量、我及堂員余澤森夫婦和女兒於十月十四日出席在加藝劇院公演《余家之主》話劇。

Vancouver YFT members attended The King of the Yees Performance

Richmond’s Gateway Theatre presented the Canadian premiere of fast-rising American playwright Lauren Yee’s cultural comedy "KING OF THE YEES" from October 13 to October 22. This play was directed by Sherry J. Yoon.

Fred Yee and I attended one of the performances on Friday, October 14th with other Yees from Vancouver.

If the words Yee Fung Toy the Model Ancestor and former State Senator Leland Yee mean something to you, then you will also really enjoy the play. If they do not you you will still enjoy it. It has so much to offer, I was laughing one moment and in tears the next.

Opening night was almost sold out, but I am sure there are tickets available on other nights until it closes on Oct 22. Congratulations Lauren and the cast!
