Can you believe it’s already March? If it wasn’t for the pandemic we would be holding our AGM and Social very soon. Unfortunately we cannot hold it but we have been working hard to send out a gift to our paid members. If you were a paid member for 2018 and/ 2019, you will have received a Toronto Fukuoka Kenjinkai 40th anniversary mask. A big thank you goes out to our board members who made this possible. There are a few people we were not able to get a hold of to get their address so if you did not receive one, please let us know. Hope everyone is staying safe. The board will continue to meet to plan more fun things for our members.

For more information on the program, or if you are a member and have an 11 year child in 2020 to participate in the program please contact us.
