August Kickoff Training

Written by CAPA-JRC reporter Eileen Luo

On August 1, 2021, in rainy weather, the Chinese American Parents Association Junior Reporter Club (CAPA JRC) hosted its first meeting of the year at Big Pines Park to get to know each other and train new members. After an introduction by co-presidents Claire Yu and Evelyn Shue, the JRC played a game of mafia. At noon, they had lunch, followed by training in one of four groups: videography, photography, reporting, and graphic design. The event lasted until 2 p.m., when the rain cleared up and members went outside to take a group photo.
