Zumba Fitness Socials
Our chapter has been having Zumba Fitness socials on Zoom on the third Sunday of every month, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., led by member Yufan Lu. Sunday, April 18, and Sunday, May 16, 2021 were the dates of our most recent events.
A handful of members have been joining in. Yufan chooses, compiles, and teaches each song and dance based on members’ ages and experience. She has included Indian, Latin, and Chinese folk songs and dance steps to add variety and fun.

This year’s National River Cleanup was held on every Saturday in May. Due to the pandemic, each group selected its own date and route, and arranged picking up tools ahead of time.
On Saturday, May 22, 2021, from 10:30 a.m. until noon, the Silicon Valley Chapter held its cleanup. Our former president Alice Chiou helped to pick up tools the day before and brought them to the site we chose, which was Calabazas Creek in Cupertino, CA. When we learned that the entrance of the creek was locked, we decided to go to Memorial Park in Cupertino instead.
Fifteen members and friends participated. Everyone was happy to see each other after over a year having to shelter in place. It was like a social outing while serving the community.
