Now through January 24: Grand Park’s Ground Our Present, Dot Our Future

Chinese American Museum of Los Angeles

CAM is once again partnering with Grand Park for their New Year’s Eve celebration, “Ground Our Present, Dot Our Future,” a public art installation that runs through Jan. 25.

Designed to build community with enrichment, engagement, and dialogue, the art installation features the involvement of seven organizations that have collectively provided more than 74-floor markers (dots) that can be seen throughout the park walkways.

In support of the art installation, CAM has provided 10 quotes from community members Munson Kwok, Bing Liu, Suellen Cheng, Michelle Wong, Paula Williams Madison, Gay Yuen, Michael Truong, Juily Phun, Jenny Dorsey, and Jaclyn Ke Yin Kalkhurst.

Sunday, January 17 More Memories of Growing Up in San Francisco’s Chinatown.

Book Talk via Zoom: Sunday, 17 January 2012

2:00 pm – 3:00 pm PST

Two engaging volumes about growing up in San Francisco Chinatown by Edmund S. Wong.

About this Event

American Born Chinese (ABC) Baby Boomers who grew up in San Francisco’s Chinatown share treasured memories and prized stories about being a part of America’s most exotic ethnic neighborhoods.

Former Chinatown kid Edmund S. Wong takes readers back to the lively streets and alleyways where he and his contemporaries worked and played in the vibrant cultures of old China and the United States during its post World War II years.

This FREE event is hosted by Clara Hsu and moderated by Cynthia Yee and Pat Nishimoto.

Send Comments Now: Blue & Gold Fleet Request to Permanently Stop Ferry Service (SF-Angel Island & SF-Tiburon) PUC is scheduled to make their decision soon

Urgent share with your friend, family, and other contacts and ask them to email or write. I called the number below and the representative is not picking up messages. Send emails or write comments.

To write a public opinion (see below instructions), email ( public.advisor@cpuc.ca.gov), or call the CA PUC (telephone at 1-866-849-8390) to not allow Blue and Gold Fleet to stop their ferry service between San Francisco and Angel Island.  If this ferry service is allowed to stop service, visitors will only be able to get to Angel Island from Tiburon, which means  added cost and time to get to Tiburon.  As a senior citizen this has a negative impact and makes Angel Island less accessible.  

Please note there are two Proceeding Numbers –

San Francisco – Angel Island State Park Ferry 2009004 

San Francisco – Tiburon Ferry 2009005

Please read the following directions first. If I knew how to make submitting public comments easier, I would have. This is my fifth attempt.

Public comments should be made immediately, because I understand these two proposals will be reviewed by the CPUC this coming week.

Updated: 12/10/2020 The Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) hearing the matter has not issued a scoping memo setting the timeline for the application.  The ALJ required Blue and Gold to post public notice at their docks for 30 days and the 30 days has only just started.  The PUC will write instructions about what your options are to submit comments and ways to participate,

Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation December 2020 E-News

It has come to our attention that the Blue and Gold Fleet has submitted a request to permanently stop their ferry service between San Francisco and Angel Island as well as between San Francisco and Tiburon. This would mean that the only way to get to Angel Island would be to drive to Tiburon and take the Angel Island Ferry. At AIISF, we are concerned that without any direct ferry service from San Francisco to Angel Island, visitation to the island (when it is safe to do so) will drop dramatically and will negatively impact preservation and education efforts. It is estimated that half the visitors who go to Angel Island have taken the Blue and Gold Ferry. The CA Public Utilities Commission is scheduled to make their decision in the coming week.
