會長感言

接下台灣同鄉會會長職務即將屆滿一年, 欣見同鄉會會務逐漸上了軌道, 也樂見舊會員繼續支持同鄉會, 更感謝新會員的加入! 當然也很感恩所有尚未加入會員但一樣給我們鼓勵的朋友們參與我們的活動。 幾次活動舉辦下來, 雖然因為人力財力有限, 每次活動所有的義工幹部們為了克服這些問題, 每人都身兼數值, 都很辛苦疲累; 但看到大家滿意開心的笑臉, 所有的辛勞都得到了最佳的回饋。

新的一年, 我衷心期許, 台灣同鄉會贏得更多來自各方的支持和鼓勵。 同鄉會不是僅屬於幾名幹部的組織; 同鄉會的理想和目標不僅在服務本地僑民及朋友們, 更要努力推廣台灣, 讓更多人更深刻了解台灣, 體會台灣文化, 享受台灣人的友善與熱情。這個目標需要大家的參與及實行, 有了大家的力量, 才能讓這理想發光發熱!

我們計劃在新的一年籌劃更多活動, 包含三節慶祝餐會, 主題座談, 野餐郊遊, 藝文欣賞及兒童愛台灣徵文圖畫比賽並計畫發行會刊。任何人若有興趣參與策畫各項活動, 請隨時與我們聯繫, 同鄉會需要更多的人才, 才能有更大的格局實現理想。 再次感謝大家的支持鼓勵, 祝福大家2014年平安快樂, 馬到成功!

TAIWAN: OUR MOTHER LAND
by Ching-Chih Chen

TAIWAN is an island nation with a land area of about 14,000 square miles, i.e. about the size of West Virginia, with an estimated population of over 23 million, or 1/12 of US population. It is situated in the western Pacific Ocean and separated from southern China by the 100 mile wide Taiwan Strait.

The heavily forested hills and mountains of central and eastern Taiwan reach their summit at YU SHAN (13,113 feet); there are about 70 peaks exceeding 10,000 feet. The broad coastal plain in the west supports most of the island's population and is the chief agricultural zone. Natural disasters such as typhoons and earthquakes are common. Taiwan has a semitropical climate and annual rainfall ranges from moderate to heavy. With abundant sunshine and rainfall, the island is agriculturally very productive. Today, in terms of land use, arable land accounts for 24% of total land area, while forests and woodland still make up 55% of Taiwan. (Full Article)
