Harbor Bay Intercultural Committee

The Harbor Bay Intercultural Committee (IC), a subcommittee of the CHBI Owners’ Association, was founded in May 1998. Since its inception, the IC has organized numerous seminars on health, safety, and a variety of other subjects that are of interest to our members. The IC has also previously sponsored a children’s Mandarin class. Past IC’s major activity has been the organization of the Lunar New Year (Spring) Festival at Harbor Bay Landing Shopping Center. The IC has donated the proceeds from game ticket sales at the festival to the Alameda Food Bank and Friends of Alameda Animal Shelter. The IC has also supported the Community of Harbor Bay Isle’s Annual Community Picnic & Softball Game, benefiting the Midway Shelter of Alameda and the Harbor Bay Isle Community Garage Sale, in which past proceeds have benefited the Alameda Free Library, Alameda Meals on Wheels, and Asian American Donor Program.
