Meet and Greet
We have a meeting request from Professor Aoyama from Tokyo when he and his group is here on December 30th. He is a well-known TV commentator (city development/planning) in Japan. http://www.aoyamayasushi.org/english/index.htm
He is leading 13 Japanese from Ryozanpaku Graduate School to learn more about Seattle and the Japanese and Japanese-American communities. They have made a specific request to understand more about the JASSW mission and how we accomplish it through our programs and activities.
To help them get a better understanding of some of the Japanese-American history and experience, we have also arranged a tour of the NVC Memorial Hall with NVC Commander Allen Nakamoto.
The agenda timeline is below. We would appreciate it if you could attend the “Meet and Greet” with JASSW members. If you have not had a tour of the NVC Hall and the Memorial Wall, please join the group at 2:00 pm. Otherwise, if you can spend 45 minutes starting at 2:45 pm with this group to share your thoughts about JASSW, your job experience or general things about living and working in Seattle, they would be grateful. It also should be a great experience to meet Professor Aoyama and his group..
