German-American Recipe Book - released
RSCC is delighted to present a German-American Recipe Book. This was a joint COVID-pandemic project with DAGRP (our Pinneberg Sister City org.) to share foods that bring us comfort during our pandemic shut-in and separation, a virtual way to continue our cultural exchange. Dir. Allison Chang led this project and edited the cookbook. She did outstanding work, professional quality.
The cookbook is being released electronically to RSCC members. The link below downloads an encrypted PDF file. The decryption key is provided to members. Not a member and interested in this cookbook? Well, then join RSCC for modest membership dues, Membership link.
We thank the DAGRP for their delightful and bountiful contributions.
Learn Mandarin Chinese (Online Classes)
The Washington DC Taiwanese School (WDCTS) is offering online classes in Mandarin Chinese: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Conversational. This is a great way to learn or brush up those language skills. RSCC members are offered a $20 discount. Follow the link of the picture to more information.
RSCC and Covid; We Carry on as Can
We all struggle with the Covid pandemic. This is a substantial interruption in our Person-to-Person contacts with our distant Sister Cities. While just as we do here, staying in touch virtually is the alternative. So we are doing that as complimentary organizations. We meet with DAGRP (in Pinneberg) and YCSCC (in Yilan City) by video conference and do what we can, while looking forward to when we can meet again in person.
