Congratulating the International Taoist Tai Chi Society on their 40th Anniversary
Honorable Harry E. Mitchell of Arizona in the House of Representatives
“Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize and congratulate the International Taoist Tai Chi Society on their organization’s 40th anniversary.
Predominantly managed by volunteers, the Taoist Tai Chi Society instructs members in internal arts and methods which focus on recovering, improving, and maintaining health and wellness. In following the aims of objectives of its founder, Master Moy Lin-shin, the society also promotes preserving the “essence of tradition in the modern world” and the “dual cultivation of mind and body.”
With locations in more than 25 countries around the world, the International Taoist Tai Chi Society unites individuals of different cultures and dialects, creating an international community. I am pleased to note that in my own 5th Congressional District, the society opened a nonprofit, Arizona Chapter in 2008. This chapter has both helped to improve the health of members in my district and facilitate their connection with others throughout the world interested in similar practices.
Madam Speaker, please join me in recognizing the Arizona Chapter of the International Taoist Tai Chi Society and the entire organization on its 40th anniversary.”
