On January 25, 2008, about 120 people attended The Legacy of Gold Mountain: Chinese Immigrant Families in Southern Arizona. Organized by Pima Community College as the first of its new Discovering Southern Arizona series, it was held at the beautiful Tucson Chinese Cultural Center and featured presentations by David Tang, Yen "Gary" Low, and Pasty Lee. They shared family stories and answered questions.
