The New Year's Party was held on January 10, 2016 at Sheraton Sociey Hill Hotel with over 100 guests. Everyone shared a wonderful time and celebrated the New Year and the JAGP's great accomplishment. On top of our anuual shishimai (lion dance), we enjoyed the JAGP chorus members' beautiful voices, as well as the powerful Japanese taiko (drum) performance by the members of KyoDaiko, Origami Perfomance by Mr. Yaguchi, . The raffle had so many great prizes, and the live auction was so exciting to see many people bid so much. It was truly a commemorative event to celebrate the beginning of the 2016.
Ms. Ai Hirota and Ms. Yuriko Grenda 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.
