Miss Mai in her bridal dress with her father, Rev. Luc T. Hoang
AAJA member Mai Hoang, a business reporter for the Yakima Herald-Republic, got married on Saturday, Sept. 26, at St. Paul Cathedral in Yakima, Wash.
An AAJA Seattle contingent went to Yakima to share this joyous day with her: chapter secretary Venice Buhain, Tanya Woo, Anthony Dondero and myself.
