US-China Peoples Friendship Association – Minnesota

Bridging the Peoples of Minnesota and China

USCPFA-MN is dedicated to developing and strengthening friendship and mutual understanding between the peoples of the United States and China.  Founded in 1974, the Minnesota Chapter of USCPFA is a non-profit, tax-exempt, 501c(3) non-partisan, educational organization.

Our members come from all backgrounds and interests.  However, we share a common goal of promoting friendship between our two countries through individual person-to-person connections.

USCPFA-MN deeply appreciates Bob Schmitt of Laughing Waters Studio for his artistic and technical skill and the donation of his talent and innumerable hours to make this website a reality.  USCPFA-MN also acknowledges the many hours Linda Mealey-Lohmann put into gathering, organizing, and inputing materials for the website and the care that Mary Warpeha put into gathering photos and materials and writing copy for this website.  Without these three, this new website would not have happened.  Finally, USCPFA-MN wishes to thank the members of the Website Development Committee-Mary Warpeha, Linda Mealey-Lohmann, Ted Farmer, Carole Hyder, and Walter Graff, for their many hours of brainstorming and guidance.
