Dear Bill & World Tai Chi & Qigong Day,

I am happy to announce that Nevada has been issued a proclamation from the Governor to recognize and honor WTCQD.

The Las Vegas Library District in Clark County is combining their annual Food and Cultural Fair celebration with the WTCD event.

The Lohan School of Shaolin is coordinating these efforts with them, and we have given them a mailing list of all the community centers, senior centers, martial art schools and athletic facilities so they can send out a letter of inviation to join this event at the West Sahara Library.

Billie Ann Sabala, Tai Chi instructor/Administrator - Lohan School of Shaolin
