Our members are divided into twenty four groups with one leader in each for the ease of communication. Our member activities include weekly singing classes, dancing classes, Chinese calligraphy classes, gardening classes and mahjong gatherings.

本会历史Our History

回顾二零零二年初春,几位热心侨社的中山人氏酝酿组织温哥华中山同乡会,想为中山乡亲做点有意义的事,于三月六日在卢曼德家中举行第一次座谈会,当日参加的中山人氏共有十五位,包括黄庆光、陈善猷、卢曼德、黄汉廉、高桂波、吴敬棠、罗绍洲、黄小薇、简庆伟、黄焕碧、刘灿焜、陈奕雄、甘棠、黄炳枢等人。当日讨论了多项议题,决定成立中山同乡会,也讨论了章程,入会资格等事项,并一致推举黄庆光先生为负责人,以他的德高望重,是最适合人选,他也一口答应了,因为组织温哥华中山同乡会也是他多年的心愿。

有了明确的目标,就马上付诸行动,于是积极展开筹备工作,一方面登报招收会员,一方面觅选会址,经过两个多月的时间,终于觅得在喜士定东街658-660 号的楼宇,并于五月底由黄庆光、陈善猷、卢曼德三人出资购下,以供中山同乡会使用,经过多月的装修,大工程的翻新,一座楼高两层,地方宽敞明亮,设备完善,舒适崭新的楼宇,即现在的同乡会,为会员提供了各种文娱康乐活动,麻雀耍乐,闲话家常,聚会憇息的好地方,并于同年二月三日正式启用,当日热闹非常,门前摆满庆贺花篮,醒狮表演,廿三台麻雀耍乐,楼上楼下都挤满了人,乡音笑语,麻雀牌声,歌声融会成一首不协调的乐曲,但感到非常之熟悉及入耳。

二零零三年三月八日为同乡会成立日,在大酒家筵开四十九席,应邀出席之乡亲有省议员李灿明先生,市议员雷健华先生,域多利市长刘志强先生,到贺者有加洲中山同乡会阮炳昌会长一行十人,域多利中山福善堂主席刘林庆一行十人,并邀请名影视艺人岳华先生为大会司仪,当晚的盛会,节目精采,奖品名贵又丰富,乡情洋溢,热闹而又温馨,是个很成功的晚会。

有了好的开始,黄会长及理事会有宏大的愿望,就是中山同乡会要拥有自置物业。要将黄庆光、陈善猷、卢曼德三人拥有的会址照原价卅六万转让给同乡会。于是就积极发动募捐,因为得到每位会员的热列支持踊跃慷慨的捐款,捐款数字日日上升,到二零零四年底就筹得卅三万,距离卅六万,还欠三万。在二零零五年一月十五日的理事职员的会议上再次发动加捐,在有人带头加捐一万元的情况下,掀动了在座各人的情绪,纷纷举手加捐,由一百至三两千等,加捐之声此起彼落,每当有人加捐时就响起阵阵的掌声及欢乐的笑声,场面令人感动。不足一小时,三万元就筹定了,买会址所需的三十六万就大功告成。并于二零零五年一月廿五日在郑达良律师楼签好转让手续。同乡会从二零零三年三月八日成立到二零零五年一月廿五日,用了廿二个月的时问,就拥有自置物业,作为同乡会的每一位会员都感到骄傲与自豪。

温哥华中山同乡会的成功,一定要得到会员的支持。会员就是同乡会的推动力,也是同乡会的希望,就因为凝聚了会员的力量,同乡会几年来走得平坦顺畅。希望会员能继续支持同乡会,热爱同乡会,更希望理事同人今后要衷诚合作,群策群力,彼此要尊重要多包容,要多谅解,同乡会今后定能稳步发展,向前迈进。

In the spring of 2002, several Zhongshan fellows who are enthusiastic about oversea Chinese community generated the idea of​​ forming an allied association, with a view of doing something meaningful for the Zhongshan fellows in Vancouver. On March 6, the first meeting was held at the home of Lo Man-Tak. On that day, 15 Zhongshan fellows attended the meeting and discussed on several items on the agenda. They decided to create a Zhongshan Allied Association. They also discussed items such as constitution, member qualifications etc. At the meeting , fellows proposed Mr. Wong Hing-Kwong to take charge based on his respectable background. Mr. Wong agreed right a way because it had always been his wish to create an association for the Zhongshan fellows.

Having established a clear objective, preparatory actions began immediately to advertise for membership on the one hand, and to look for a club house on the other hand. Two months later, a suitable location for the club house was found at 658-660 East Hastings Street. At the end of May, Wong Hing-Wong, Chan Sen Yow and Lau Chan Kwan jointly purchased the property as club house for the association. After a few months of extensive renovation work, a bright, spacious, comfortable and well equipped two storey building, that is the current club house, was available for use of our fellow members. The club house offered facilities for various recreational activities, mahjong games, chatting, meeting and relaxing. On February 23, 2003, the club house was officially opened . On the opening day, the club house was jam-packed with people.Flower baskets all over the front side. Lion dance, performances and mahjong games were some of the main events of the day. Both storey of the club house were filled with laughers, singing and Zhongshan accent. Although the sounds were not at all harmonized, they were familiar and nice to hear.

March 8, 2003 was the official inaugural day of our Association. 49 tables were opened in a major restaurant. Our fellows attending included MLA Mr. Richard T. Lee, City Councilor Mr. Raymond Louie, Mayor of Victoria Mr. Alan Lowe, a delegation of 10 members from California Zhongshan Allied Association led by their president Mr. Yuen Ping Cheong, and a delegation of 10 members from Fook Sen Tong of Victoria led by their Chairman Mr. Lau Lam Hing. Famous actor Mr. Yueh Hua was invited to act as the master of ceremony for the evening. The entertainments for the evening were marvelous and the prizes were precious and rich. The atmosphere was filled with warmth and excitement. The dinner turned out to be a great success. With a good beginning,one big wish of President Wong Hing Kwong and the board of directors was to have an Association owned club house. They decided to sell their ownership of the club house to the Association at the original purchase price of $360,000. A campaign for fund raising was therefore carried out. With the great support and generosity of all our members, the donation figure rose daily. At the end of 2004, the fund raised was $330,000, only $30,000 short of the target. During an executive meeting on January 15, 2005, discussion was made on how to increase the donation amount. Someone in the meeting volunteered to make an additional donation of $10,000. Others attending the meeting were motivated and all volunteered to make additional donations ranging from $100 to $3,000. Applauses and laughers filled the meeting room whenever a donation commitment was made.In less than an hour, the required $30,000 was raised. The required funding for purchasing the club house was successful fulfilled and the purchase was completed on January 25, 2005. It took only 22 months for the Association to own its property since it creation. As a member of the Association, we are all proud of such achievement.

The success of an association must be backed by its members’ support. Members are the prime motion behind the association and also are the hope of the association. It was because of the cohesiveness among our members that made the path of our Association flat and smooth . Let’s hope that all our members will continue to support our Association, love our Association. Let’s also hope that our directors and staff will continue to respect, cooperate with each other, and to increase their mutual understanding. Then, our Association will move forward and develop steadily.
