Residents of the Central Coast are invited to a unique Open House this coming Thursday, February 7, as RE/MAX Seven Cities Realty of Morro Bay ushers in the Lunar New Year. As Western culture rings in the New Year every January, Chinese culture similarly celebrates the New Year, albeit a little later in the Winter. This local celebration is the brainchild of RE/MAX top producer Sherry Sim, a native of Singapore. “Chinese culture celebrates the new year with the coming together of friends and family, all sharing delicious food and generally creating an atmosphere of happiness and prosperity,” said Ms. Sim. “I thought it would be a fun way for us all to get together with our colleagues and customers to welcome 2008, which is the Year of the Rat”. In addition to a wide array of Asian foods and treats, celebrants will have an opportunity to enjoy a lion dance performance by the Cal Poly Lion Dance Team. Anyone wishing to usher in the Lunar New Year is invited to join the staff of RE/MAX Seven Cities Realty, 815 Morro Bay Blvd. Bring your good karma, your wishes for prosperity and general good nature and celebrate “The Year of the Rat” from 3 pm to 7 pm on Thursday, February 7, 2008!
