Aloha Johnson

I am writing to sincerely thank both of you for taking the time as well as making the investment to be part of the team in China and Hong Kong. I hope that it was fruitful from your perspectives in better understanding some of the possibilities and issues that are facing us.

I very much enjoyed our times together and the opportunity of getting to know you better. I would hope that we can do this again in the future in Southeast Asia. It is an excellent way to reconnect with our alumni. This would be especially important in Singapore.

I was hoping to buy drinks for everyone at the Regent before we left in order to show my appreciation but we simply ran out of time. Johnson please do send Carmen my best. I very much enjoyed her humor.

We will be having a debrief when I get back from Asia on the entire experience.

I am leaving for Bangkok after two incredibly busy days in Singapore. I had a round of meetings each day ending after 10 o'clock in the evening. The brand is incredibly strong.

Again Mahalo for your dedication to the School.

With warm regards

Special Thanks to Mr. Clarence Lee for helping us to design our New Logo!

Mr. Lee is a member of HKCHCC.

Clarence Lee is president of Clarence Lee Design & Associates, Inc. Born and raised in Honolulu, Lee attended Iolani School, Pomona College, and is a 1958 graduate of Yale University, School of Art & Architecture. He worked for the Lester Beall Design Group, 1959-1961 and joined the IBM Corporation in New York City, 1962-1965.

Lee returned to Hawaii in 1966 to establish his design firm and has developed over 200 symbols in his productive and illustrious career. A recipient of numerous national and international awards, he has been featured in national publications such as CA Magazine, IDEA Magazine and Print Magazine. Lee received the Hawaii Advertising Federation Silver Award for outstanding contributions to the advertising industry in 1987. Lee was one of 128 designers in the USA to be invited to participate in the images of Survival Peace Poster project, exhibited in Washington, D.C., Hiroshima, and Moscow.

In 1992, Lee designed a New Year’s stamp for the U.S. Postal Service that commemorated the contributions of Chinese–Americans in the USA. Following the success of the initial stamp, the Postal Service commissioned him to design a series of stamps featuring the twelve years of the Chinese lunar calendar. He also designed the first USA–People’s Republic of China joint–issue stamp that was issued in 1994.

In 2001 Lee was selected a Living Treasure by the Honpa Hongwanji Mission. He is the most recent recipient of the Koa Award as an Outstanding Artist in Hawaii.

The Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA), a national Asian Pacific American (APA) civil rights and education group with over 80 chapters and affiliates nationwide, joins the United States Postal Service (USPS) in celebrating the Lunar New Year with the issuance of the complete stamp set in the award-winning Lunar New Year series.

The stamp dedication ceremony for the First Day of Issue of the Lunar New Year stamp set took place in the morning at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu, Hawaii January 6, 2005.

The Lunar New Year series first began in 1993 with the issuance of the Year of the Rooster stamp, followed by stamps for the Years of the Dog, Boar, Rat, Ox, Tiger, Hare, Dragon, Snake, Horse, and Monkey. 2005 is again the Year of the Rooster.

The inspiration for creating a Lunar New Year commemorative stamp first originated in 1988 based on an idea of Jean Chen's, an OCA-Georgia chapter member. Ms. Chen decided that there needed to be something done on a large scale that would recognize Chinese contributions to this nation. Claudine Cheng, OCA's national president at the time, launched a campaign based on Ms. Chen's inspiration.

"OCA is pleased to share in the reflections of the last twelve stamps which have served as symbols of a community's emergence," said Ginny Gong, OCA National President, "With each use of the official paper cut images, Americans are reminded of the struggles and the achievements of a people.. A people who immigrated to this country with very little and dedicated their energies to making a big difference as Americans. We are pleased to have played a key role in the issuance of the Lunar New Year stamps the first stamps honoring Asian Pacific Americans."

The unveiling of the Lunar New Year stamp collection will signal the end of this commemorative stamp series. Every year, OCA chapters have been involved in the planning of the First Day of Issue event and the program always included a representative from OCA. This year's ceremony featured remarks by Gong.

"OCA wishes to thank the United States Postal Service for helping to promote the cultural heritage of Chinese Americans and to remind America that this great country is a composite of many ethnic roots and backgrounds," said Gong.

Customers have 30 days to obtain the first day of issue postmark by mail. They may purchase new stamps and Lunar New Year collectors sets at their local Post Office, by telephone at 1-800 STAMP-24, and at the Postal Store Website at

The Lunar Year is the longest chronological record in history and is based on the cycles of the moon. Each Lunar Year is represented by one of the twelve animal signs of the Chinese Zodiac. Those born this year, Year of the Rooster, are said to be decisive, hard-working and honest.
