About Us
Korean Chess Contest
  1. Overview

    We are very happy to host the Korean Chess Contest. Queensboro day care center is a typical multi-cultural community and our members mostly consist of Korean, Chinese and Indian elderly.

    Every culture having its unique features and customs, especially, the Korean culture seems to be proud of sincere respects to seniors and honor of their opinions.

    Deeply aware of the fact that seniors' daily life is apt to be monotonous and alienated from the social majority under the high pressure of New York life, we have been trying to give momentum to the seniors through various kind of events and educational programs.

    This contest is planned to energize the Korean elderly and vitalize their human networking capabilities.
