Christmas Broadcast 2010

HRH Queen Elizabeth II Christmas Broadcast 2010



2008 Community Service Volunteer in the County of Du Page‏, in the Village of Lombard, in the Chicagoland area, Global–here, there, and everywhere…
by G.C. Hung, M.A. Communications, Languages & Culture, Inc.

As an Illinois resident homeowner, taxpayer, and U.S. citizen in the Village of Lombard, I have always volunteered for the community and performed community services at my own expense and using the operational budget for my company, Communications, Languages & Culture, Inc., on behalf of children, young people, adults, and the elderly, even the sick, the disabled, and the feeble–in the past, currently in the present, future, and beyond… The Friends of the Helen M. Plum Library remember me as a member of the Library Board and a volunteer editor for the quarterly newsletter, the Christmas Wreath Contest, the Annual Book Sale, and other library community events in Lilac Town. The Lombard Garden Club welcomed me as one of their own flowers and invited me to present my garden travelogue of the Jenny Butchart Gardens, the Montréal Botanical Gardens, and my own experience as a gardener and resident homeowner.Later the Lombard Service League asked me to join them as the LSL Newsletter editor and volunteer participant to promote community events at the Lexington Square Retirement Center. The Village of Lombard invited me to participate in the Community Relations Workshop and TV Channel 6 media training seminar for broadcasting and publishing events for the community-at-large.As Faculty at the College of Du Page, I volunteered extra time after regular work hours for the Latin American Committee and the European Heritage Committee, as well as for the Nursing Program featuring Spanish for Health Care Communication Professionals in the medical field. The American Red Cross has trained and certified me as a volunteer to provide First Aid, Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), and Advanced Electronic Defibrillator (AED) assistance for first medical responders. I have helped to save lives in the community by providing emergency care and American Red Cross assistance.At my local Christian Catholic Parish, St. Pius X Church, I have always volunteered to help and assist at church events sponsored by the Catholic Council of Women, including Elizabeth Ministry, Christmas Magic Bazaar, Chili Night, Christmas decorations, and singing with the Adult Choir during the year.Others have benefited from my community volunteer support for law enforcement agencies locally, statewide, and nationally as a member of the Illinois Sheriff Association, for many years in the Village of Lombard, Du Page County, Illinois. In Wheaton, I have volunteered for Holy Cross Lutheran Church located at 802 E. Geneva Road, to help in the Global Assistance Program providing Tie-a-Knot Blankets made by the women at church with their own hands. I have also attended the Sibelius Music Festival during the summer and participated in the musical concerts sponsored by Finlandia University at Holy Cross Lutheran Church.In addition, I have been a Court Advocate and Friend of the Court in Wheaton, at the 18th Judicial Circuit Court, Du Page Judicial Center. Also, I have offered my communication skills and language services for translation to the National Lodge at the Theosophical Society of America in Wheaton.As a Lombard resident homeowner, taxpayer, and U.S. citizen, I have always supported my local public schools, Westmore Elementary School and St. Pius X Catholic School. During my active years of teaching kindergarten, elementary, high school, and college students, I have volunteered endless hours for young people and the elderly alike. As a college student, I volunteered for senior citizens during a graduate project for the American Gerontological Association and Chicago-area hospitals and nursing homes. I also volunteered in Chinatown for the Chinese-American Service League.In addition, I have also volunteered for professional associations who remember me as an active member at the Illinois Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, Conference Committee Chair for Public Relations, at the Chicago Area Translators Association, at the American Translators Association, French and Spanish Language Divisions, and at the Federation of International Translators, around the world.

Throughout the years, I have volunteered for the City of Chicago – Office of the Mayor, the Chicago Public Schools, the Chicago Humanities Festival, and other community groups who have shared my time at Northeastern Illinois University, St. Augustine College, Oakton Community College, etc. Since I usually have to pay cash for my own volunteer services, using my personal income, and my own company resources, equipment, and budget for Communications, Languages & Culture, Inc., I cannot say that I have failed to perform my civic duties as an Illinois resident homeowner, taxpayer, and U.S. citizen. As I am getting older, lacking in resources and transportation to pay for my own volunteer services, I am very selective when I offer my time to volunteer for the community-at-large. However, those who see me walking around and volunteering willingly to help others, cannot say that I have failed to do my duty as a community service volunteer in the past, present, future, and beyond…here, there, and everywhere…
