DCBA 2016 Holiday Party hosted by MELLEN,SMITH & PIVOZ PLC
On Thursday December 29th, a beautiful winter day, Mellen, Smith & Pivoz Plz , a well-respected Michigan local Accounting company, who has been collaborating with and supporting DCBA with their annual sponsorship for a few years, has cordially invited DCBA board members and volunteers at the beautifully decorated Huron River Hunting and Fishing Club in Farmington to celebrate the holiday seasons together.
The club was festive and welcoming, the company was outstanding. Before dinner was served, all guests were seated, the evening's hosts Pei Jin and Dan Hoppe welcomed the DCBA team with kind words of friendship and holiday cheers. All guests were then treated to a beautiful performance by a truly talented vocalist Ms. Debora Dai, it was followed by the evening’s four-course meal which was not only pleasing to the eye but also it was to the plate, a further treat for the senses and enjoyment.
As dinner was ending, everyone took a moment to stand up and tell a little about themselves as well as their experience with the DCBA. As guests went one by one telling small stories, it became clear that the overriding theme of the evening was one of appreciation and team spirit. Everyone who is associated with the DCBA has a special affection and passion for our shared mission. A small group with a large goal: connecting China and Michigan through business and cultural exchange.
As the evening went on, the sound of laughter and a jovial spirit filled the air. The DCBA president Jerry Xu gave a short speech to show our appreciation of MSP’s hospitality and generosity. The DCBA team presented party’s host couple with a small appreciation gift which were received with thankfulness. Everyone who attended had a wonderful time, a feeling of possibility and hope for the new year permeated through the room and it was all made possible by our most gracious hosts, who made sure the evening was special.
