THE YEAR OF THE RABBIT IS ALMOST HERE.

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY   2011

Soon Chinese New Year will arrive in our Valley. There has been a Chinese presence in the San Fernando Valley since the building of the Southern Pacific Railroad and the planting of America's luxury orchards at the end of the 19th century. Securing the histories of the Valley's Chinese residents is an important mission of your Museum.

 Red-faced dragon calls out good fortune to patrons of the Great Wall Restaurant. I love the old fashioned hospitality and good food of the place. And, candied apples for desert, who could ask for more!
Very soon now, the Year of the Rabbit will arrive. Don't forget to say Rabbit! Rabbit! before you say anything else for a full year of GOOD LUCK!  Bridge over a very busy Chinese river at the Great Wall Restaurant in Reseda.
