As an annual Chi­nese cul­tural event, ‘China Night’ has been launched in Lafayette for 6 years. It pro­vides local res­i­dents oppor­tu­ni­ties to have a taste of Chi­nese cul­ture. Dr. John Lay­ton, Assis­tant Super­in­ten­dent of Lafayette School Cor­po­ra­tion, intro­duced the audi­ence of the devel­op­ment of Chi­nese Pro­gram in LSC, and Dr. Wei Hong, wel­comed all the par­tic­i­pants on behalf of Con­fu­cius Insti­tute. Tables were arranged in the gym, where one could enjoy Chi­nese cal­lig­ra­phy, paper-​cutting, knot-​making, Chi­nese origami, lantern rid­dles, and so on. Every year, ‘Tal­ent Show’ remains the most excit­ing part of the event, and this year there was no excep­tion. The 30-​minute show pre­sented songs by LSC Chi­nese Pro­gram stu­dents from Edge­lea Ele­men­tary School, Sun­ny­side Mid­dle School and Jef­fer­son High School.
