The Toronto Fukuoka Kenjinkai’s 2018 AGM and Social was held on March 25. We gave out awards to the seniors (88 and 95) and Ms. Godo gave a presentation on the Study Abroad Program for Descendants of Immigrants of Fukuoka Presentation. We also had one 11 year old interested in taking part in the Short Term Visit Program. After the meeting we played bingo, watched entertainers, took part in odori, ate bento dinner and finished with fukubiki. It was another successful and fun gathering. Thank you to all those who came out. Our next event is the picnic in August.
The 5-pin bowling lanes are now filled up and we need a few more 10-pin bowlers. Please RSVP to the webmaster using the contact form by September 12. We have 5 5-pin lanes booked and 3 10-pin lanes. The elevators are not in service so please make sure you can come up and down the stairs.
Some people were sad that there was no picnic this year, so we have decided to add a bowling event. Date will be Sunday, September 17, from 1 p.m. at Parkway Bowl (located on the border of Scarborough and North York, at Victoria Park and Ellesmere Rd, just South of highway 401 (Victoria Park Exit)).
Come enjoy an afternoon of bowling and win great prizes! The price is $8 for 2 games, plus $3 for shoes.
RSVP by September 8 to Joan Hirano (905-883-1835) or by the contact form. Please indicate whether you will be bowling 5-pin or 10-pin.
