The evening went fast but I must say, the food was great. The Four H kids did the serving and I think Doug's relatives did all the cooking. The Paradise City Council served the drinks.We had tri-tip and chicken with all the fixins. The tri-tip was so tender! The entertainment was a series of dances by young Hmong ladies in costume and with their countries music. They were great! Apparently there is a large number of Hmong in Oroville and vicinity. They were America's allies during Vietnam and many fled here as the communists took vengeance on them. A Major from their military was introduced.
Doug LaMalfa made a nice homespun speech and introduced all the dignitaries. He even introduced me! I got this picture at the beginning of the evening and before he was shaking all those hands. LOL! Vote for this man, he is a really fine fellow and a good Congressman.
