CEFS helps us to solve practical difficulties and experience warmth. I am Shelley Song and I am 71 years old. Being a member of the CEFS community is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I have joined the community fitness club, gardening classes, computer training, and English speaking classes. I have a full schedule of classes and activities that I enjoy every week. At last year's Harvest Festival, I performed with other members in a dance and Kung-fu fan to great acclaim, which was a great achievement.

Susan Li, the president of the community, helped us understand and apply for pensions and dental care program. She patiently and carefully explained the welfare policy, the application requirements and procedures, the specific documents we needed to prepare, and helped us fill out the application forms. It was the community that guided us to integrate into the country, enrich our lives and pass on our love, and we were happy and warm to live here.
