SGM Ming Lum Memorial
November 29, 2014

Hello Everyone,

It has been 3 years since we bid farewell to our dear SGM Ming Lum.  On Saturday, November 29th, 2014, at 3pm, please join us for a remembrance get-together at Skyline Memorial Park in San Mateo (Hwy 93, west of Hwy 280).  It will be a very casual and happy gathering.  Skyline Memorial is a big place, but SGM’s gravesite is very close to the front.  From the main building, look uphill and you will see us.

Immediately following, let’s have dinner at China Village Restaurant in Belmont.  Each person will cover the cost of their own dinner.  We don’t have to guarantee the restaurant a certain number of guests in advance, so anyone can join us, even at the last minute.

China Village                                                                                                  
600 Ralston Avenue (cross street Old County Road/railroad tracks)                
Belmont CA  94002                                                                                         
Lots of parking in the back.

We hope you will join us.  Please spread the word to all friends and students.  We were all so lucky to have had SGM Ming a part of our lives.  Let’s gather and talk story.
If you cannot attend both Skyline Memorial Park and dinner, please join us for just one or the other.   The group should be at China Village by 5pm.

See you on Saturday, November 29th.
