2019 Annual Meeting and Spring Gathering
This year's Annual Meeting combined with Annual Spring Gathering took place at the Golden Corral Buffet Restaurant in Poughkeepsie, NY. During the Annual Meeting, the schedule of future events and accounting report were announced in 20 minutes. It continued to be a social gathering until after 3pm. A total of 24 members and non-members attended.
Until now, Spring Gatherings have been taken places in Japanese-style restaurants, but while considering the preferences for non-Nikkei members/guests to enjoy their tongue, and it is very important for board to keep lower individuals’ spending, we have chosen to have it at an American-style restaurant.
All the attendees were given souvenirs of snacks from Japan, and they were invited to participate in a party to eat a freshly-made rice cake which is planned to hold in December.
