News From The JASV

Time flies and less than one month is left for this year 2022. With the JASV members' and community members' support we accomplished Matsuri 2022 event, the biggest event of the JASV, at Tuttle Middle School on Sep 18 this year. We sincerely appreciate your volunteer works and help. The COVID pandemic wasn't quite over and we came across some set up and running difficulties. But all of them were solved with your help and support. It was a wonderful year!!!

We are planning the next event NEW YEAR POTLUCK PARTY at the club house of Ridgewood Association in South Burlington on Saturday, 1/21/2023 from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

The detail event agenda, its schedule and the location map will be sent to you by the end of this month. At this moment, following is the temporary agenda.

1. Presentation by Zoe Nugent, who went to Japan to teach English for almost three years in Niigata prefecture. She has wonderful experiences and thoughts through an American's eyes regarding Japanese culture. It is very valuable to us.

2. Toshi Saitoh wrote a book during the COVID pandemic which describes Japanese and American culture. This is a good opportunity to present some portion of the book for your reference.

3. We also would like to have a kind of music party for fun. We know JASV has some musicians who can play musical instruments such as Shamisen, Koto and Trumpet, and also singers. Lets play, sing and have fun!!!
