Our 50th year special New Year's Parth was held on January 5, 2014 at Sheraton Sociey Hill Hotel with close to 200 guests. We invited Ms. Akiko Yano as our special guest and everyone shared a wonderful time and celebrated the New Year and the JAGP's next 50 years. On top of our anuual shishimai (lion dance), songs and dance by the children of the Japanese Language School, and raffles and live auction with many great prizes, Dr. Takako Suzuki presented the history of the JAGP with a slide show she created. It was truly a commemorative event to celebrate the beginning of the 2014 and the JAGP's next 50 years.
Mr. Takashi Satake and Ms. Ai Hirota took numerous pictures throughout the day. Please enjoy the slide show with their photos.
We were fortunate to have so many dedicated volunteers who made sure the party run smoothly, and we appreciate their great help.
