Celebrating Twenty Years in the San Francisco Bay Area
On the last day of our international workshop, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Taoist Tai Chi Society of the USA San Francisco Bay Area branch. We were honored by a visit from Dr. Karen Laughlin, an original board member of our branch. Alice Wong, past president and Jo Ann Aita, both early members, gave a talk on the history of our branch. Also in attendance and acknowledged was Richard Partridge of Vancouver, who was asked by Master Moy 20 years ago to go to San Francisco to teach Taoist Tai Chi® arts to patients with AIDS/HIV. Richard helped establish and served on the original board of directors of the San Francisco Bay Area branch.
