12 Years of Unity
Admission & Quality Control Department
I remember in those days as a pupil in elementary school, my cliché for every essay always began with ‘Time flies like an arrow shooting into the sky and never returns”. Nevertheless, inwardly I never could concur with adults’ sentimental feeling of ‘Life is too short”. In my innocent mind, it appeared that it took a very long time to have the New Year come to receive the New Year’s Red Envelope and to wear the new beautiful New Year dress. Alas, nowadays time does fly and life indeed is short.
Almost in the blink of an eye, CCACC - ADHC has already hit its12-year anniversary! These 12 years in a sense seem to be only 12 months. I still remember the day when our founder and senior consultant, Mr. Ned Li, delivered us a mighty moving lecture during the initial opening stage of the Center. On that day Mr. Li gathered all eight employees in the hall, stating the mission and the motto of CCACC – Unity of determined minds can turn into a fortified city. The sincere words out from this man, who was both a volunteer and Champaign fighter, spontaneously reflected his selfless dedication. It was striking! Mr. Li’s motive for his service left in me an indelible first impression.
In the first year of CCACC - ADHC, one of our participants was diagnosed with throat cancer. The patient had to undergo a surgery scheduled at 6:00 am at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, which meant the patient and the driver had to get up at 4 am or 5 am in the morning in order to be at the hospital on time. When I reported this situation to Mr. Ned Li, to my surprise, he said that he would volunteer himself to be the driver to carry out the task. Being one of the founders of CCACC, he does not show off being a boss; instead, he treated the participants with humanity and selflessness. Such cases were numerous beyond counting in the past 12 years!
Not only does Ned Li look after the elderly, but he also takes care of the employees. He donates all his director salary to set up two funds for the employees to go to training or to get relief from financial hardship. He also treated the entire staff with overnight outings. As a result, the staff got closer to one another, and everyone was overjoyed with such heartwarming generosity. Another memorable moment is that on one hot day Mr. Ned Li
brought in an ice shaver and made a variety of flavored icy deserts himself for his employees. Everyone was thrilled because of not only the sweetness of the taste but also the warm feeling of being cherished.
At CCACC - ADHC, Mr. Ned Li has successfully cultivated a culture of caring for one another, in which although we are not relatives yet we are closer than relatives, not families yet surpassing a family! I hereby would like to thank Mr. Li for his leadership throughout these years! Twelve is a complete number. I am looking forward to having another twelve years of CCACC - ADHC, so we could continue to write the blissful story of how care and sacrifice are always the banners of CCACC, and how the unity of determined minds has become a fortified city.
李潮先生不只放眼在服务耆老, 他也很照顾員工。他將主任的薪水，全数捐出成立兩个基金，供員工在职進修或有特別財務困難時使用；他也带領我们全体员工過夜出遊, 大家距离拉近了，也都乐翻了；还有在大熱天時，他帶个刨冰机，亲自为員工做冰品，大家都乐傻了，不只甜在嘴里，更是甜在心头！他给欢乐中心塑造了一种彼此相爱的企业文化，雖不是亲人卻勝似亲人，雖不是家人卻勝似家人！我在此感谢他一路的引領！
