Japan America Society of Vermont

Participation in the Vermont International Festival

We at the JASV will participate in the Vermont International Festival, which will be held on Dec 5, 6 and 7 at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex. With this, we will conclude all the community outreach program activities we planned for this year.

In the JASV's booth at the festival, we are going to offer 4 table full of events,

  • 1.One table to show Japanese calligraphy (people's name in Katakana.)
  • 2.One table to teach Origami to children
  • 3.One table to play Pokemon card games with children
  • 4.one table to display Japanese cultural objects and sell used books

Since this is 3-day event, we need many people's help. We need two people at each table. So, we need 24 people for the festival if you can help us one full day. If you help us a full day, the Center for Global Partnership (CGP) / The Japan Foundation and the JASV will offer lunch to you.

If you are interested in helping us or if you have any questions, please call 802-865-9985 (Toshi Saitoh) or send an e-mail to Tsaitoh@AOL.com
