Tufts Medical Center celebrated the Year of the Snake with lion dances, instrumental performances and traditional dances by Josiah Quincy Elementary School students on Feb. 13.
The Gung Ho Club performed the lion dance and scattered candy, to the delight of the students. A cabbage was “eaten” and flung as well.
“Lettuce means good luck,” said Sherry Dong, director of community health improvement programs, Tufts Medical Center. “We’re going to have a lot of that this year.”
Josiah Quincy Elementary students performed a tea-picking dance and a crimson scarf dance. The program closed with a string performance by the school’s music program.
