The gala started with the “Spring Dance” with colorful waving silks to celebrate the gains in 2019 and embark on the striving path in 2020. The gala was presented with various forms, and many BFU faculties, college students, and pupils from the primary school affiliated to BFU participated in the brilliant performances, manifesting the unity of BFU family and creating a vibrant new year atmosphere.
The first chapter of the activity was the "Memorable Times", leading us to review the achievements made in 2019. The "Pursuit" of Liang Xi's spirit brought us back to the "sprouting" of BFU and presented those memorable times of BFU development. The song and dance "Remaining True to Our Original Aspiration" reflected the "green dream" deeply rooted in the hearts of BFU faculties and students—turning mountains green and making waters clear", and all of us will undertake the glorious mission of the development of forestry of China. "The Path" was a dance performance showing the commitment of BFU to developing a beautiful China in the new era. Then, some classic songs led us to review the extraordinary development over the past 70 years of the new China, bringing the gala to the climax.
