YEAR OF THE RAT

COME CELEBRATE THE CHINESE NEW YEAR 11AM - FEBRUARY 23, 2008
AT WEAVERVILLE JOSS HOUSE STATE HISTORIC PARK

WEAVERVILLE- History will come alive when a traditional Chinese Lion Dance will be presented at the Weaverville Joss House State Historic Park to celebrate Chinese New Year. Co-Sponsored by California State Parks and the Weaverville Joss House Association, this free special event will begin at 11 a.m. in front of the 1874 Chinese Taoist Temple.

Students from Weaverville's White Tiger Kenpo Studio will perform the Lion Dance. To accompany the Lion Dance, there will be a traditional display of firecrackers to bring good fortune to the new year. Chinese believe the lion will preserve peace and tranquility in the community and prevail over all evil to bring joy and happiness in the new year. Hot tea and fortune cookies will be provided by the Weaverville Joss House Association.

The colorful lions will also be seen along Weaverville’s main street stopping at various stores to dance and bring good luck to the businesses and the community for the coming year. For more information about the event please contact Weaverville Joss House State Historic Park at 530-623-5284.

California State Parks welcomes all visitors. If members of your group have special needs, please contact us in advance to arrange accommodations.

Weaverville Joss House Association

Thanks to the efforts of Mr. Moon Lim Lee of Weaverville the Weaverville Joss House Association was formed in 1983. Mr. Lee and his wife Dorothy officially donated the "Temple of the Forest beneath the Clouds" to the State of California, State Parks Division in 1956.

Moon Lee was the last Chinese Caretaker of the Joss House. His actions made sure that the cultural and other contributions of the Chinese in California would be preserved forever. Relatives of the Lee family built the temple in 1874.

Mr. Lee also was a member of the California Transportation Commission, the predicessor of Caltrans, and his postion on this important state board resulted in the many fine roads and facilities that allow us all easy access to all of Trinty County.

Through the sale of memberships in the Association, and gift shop items, the Weaverville Joss House Interpretive Association has been supporting park goals of providing educational information about the temple.

There are several programs that the association assists with during the year. The Chinese New Year's Celebration, The Lion Dance and the Moon Festival.

The Lion Dance is a favorite of "children of all ages." The dancing cloth and pape "lions" parade around the temple grounds and the streets of Weaverville.

The "association" also provides the funds for maintaining the Chinese Gardens that feature colorful plants that have Yellow, Gold, Pink and Red blossoms. These colors are the traditional colors of Good Luck and Happy Thoughts.

The WJHIA along with Joss House Staffmembers installed a "reflecting pond" filled with water plants and fish to protect the park from evil spirits.

If you would like to consider joining the Weaverville Joss House Association, contact the Weaverville Joss House State Park, PO Box 2608, Weaverville, CA 96093-2608 - (530) 623-4343

This is the year of the TIGER!..........
