09.01.24 Jet Alumni Association Shinnenkai
On January 31st, Julian's Japan Club traveled downtown to volunteer for the second year in a row at JETAA's annual New Year's party. A great time was had by all, and even some work got done.
The kids participated in a chopsticks contest, shodo calligraphy art, gyotaku (Fish painting), kimono/yukata dress up, and Wii bowling. Students also helped sell raffle tickets and won a few prizes!
We ate tonkatsu, o-sushi, and other Japanese cuisine from a local Japanese-Hawaii restaurant.
It was great to see the Kelly and Julian kids working together and I think it was a good experience for the JETs to meet kids from our part of the city.
Much thanks to JetAA and especially Emi for reaching out to us!
