Family jewelers honor Chinese New Year

A festive crowd gathered in front of Collins Family Jewelers, 8220-A Mira Mesa Blvd., just in time to witness a spirited celebration of Chinese New Year on Saturday morning, Feb. 10.

Although the official Chinese New Year will be on Friday, Feb. 16, Bill and Cynthia Collins, owners of Collins Family Jewelers, hosted the event on Saturday to make it more convenient for families from the community to attend.

The event included a colorful dancer, three traditional costume lions, drums and fireworks to ward off evil spirits. Those in the crowd, especially children, fed the dancing lions special red envelopes containing donations to support the troupe of high school-aged performers providing the dancing, drumming and ceremonial activities.

The ceremonies culminated when the store owners were presented banners, then the three colorful lions danced through the jewelry store. Two sets of fireworks were ignited in front of the store, creating loud bangs. The crowd was thrilled as the lions continued to dance around, often rising-up high into the air to welcome in the Year of the Dog.

  3. Thanks for your post. I would also like to say a health insurance dealer also works best for the benefit of the coordinators of the group insurance policy. The health insurance professional is given a long list of benefits needed by anyone or a group coordinator. Such a broker does is seek out individuals or maybe coordinators that best match up those demands. Then he offers his suggestions and if the two of you agree, the broker formulates a binding agreement between the 2 parties.

  13. Seit 1988 residiert das Etablissement in einem stilechten Kurgastzentrum und wurde mit einer Tiefgarage für Parkmöglichkeiten und einem edlen Restaurant erweitert. Das internationale Flair wird durch die hohe Anzahl an Gästen aus Italien und Österreich geprägt. Gespielt wird hier vor allem amerikanisches und französisches Roulette, Poker und Blackjack. Stets gut besucht ist außerdem der Automatenbereich mit ca. 80 Slots sowie elektronischen Bingotischen. Die Ankopplung an den Bayernjackpot sorgt auch in diesem Haus dafür, dass Ausschüttungen von bis zu 500.000 Euro möglich sind. Ein kurzer Hinweis: Spieler aus der Schweiz können im Tipico Online Casino keine Anmeldung vornehmen, sie müssen auf das Partnerangebot vom Rivalo Casino ausweichen. Da es einen Unibet Bonus Code in der Regel nicht gibt, besteht auch diese Gefahr nicht. Die Nutzung der angebotenen Boni ist für den Spielbetrieb ausreichend und bietet jede Menge Gewinnmöglichkeiten. Ein Code erhöht auf keinen Fall die Gewinnchancen. Zudem ist jeder Bonus-Code auch mit bestimmten Umsatzanforderungen verbunden, wie es sie auch bei einem Willkommensbonus gibt. Daher bleibt der Vorteil, den ein Bonus-Code bietet, im Dunkeln. Wenn du dich bei Unibet anmeldest, hast du die Möglichkeit, dir einen 200 %igen Bonus zu sichern. Zahle mindestens 10 € ein, um den Unibet Bonus zu erhalten. Setze diesen 6 Mal mit Wetten, die eine Mindestquote von 1.4 haben, um. Um den neuen Unibet Freundschaftswerbungsbonus zu aktivieren, können Sie diesen einfach auf Ihrer Bonusseite des Benutzerkontos annehmen und damit beginnen, Email-Einladungen an Ihre Freunde zu versenden. Wenn Ihre Freunde Ihre erste Einzahlung leisten, erhalten sie ebenfalls einen 50€ Gutschein.
