More than 180 people attended the Austin Area Center’s Grand Opening on Saturday, October 26th. Members attending the weekend workshop were joined by city officials and guests from local neighborhoods in celebrating the opening of the first Taoist Tai Chi Society Center in Texas! All were treated to a traditional Chinese Lion Dance to bring good luck followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Afterward, members served guests a delicious vegetarian lunch. Many thanks to all the volunteers from Austin, Dallas and Corpus Christi whose efforts made the Austin Center’s Grand Opening celebration a great success…Texas-style!
