Chinese Afternoon Tea Invitation

Otago Chinese, this is your chance to come forward with suggestions for stories about immigration of Chinese to Otago in a number of different periods from the gold rush to the present day.

Members of the Chinese community are cordially invited to attend an afternoon tea at the Otago Settlers Museum. We’d be delighted to welcome both older and newer members of the community.
