Japan America Society of Vermont

Dear JASV Supporters,


First, the JASV sincerely appreciates your wonderful help given to us during year of 2017. We accomplished all the planned activities for the year of 2017 with your great support and could close the year of 2017 very successfully. Particularly Matsuri was the biggest event of the year. We will bow to your wonderful participation in it. It was another great year. Thank you very much!!!

This year, 2018, is the year of the dog according to the Japanese calendar. A dog is very honest, precise and intelligent. We will continue to serve our community through our community outreach events this year. Thank you for your continuous support!
