SOCIETY NEWS - RECENT EVENTS

May Luncheon Approximately forty-five membersjoined us for our luncheon to hear the Honorable Nozomu Takaoka, Consul General of Japan in Houston. He spoke about Japan’s current relationship with various countries around the world, including the continuing strong friendship between Japan and the U.S. The food was potluck, and as usual, was tasty and enjoyed by all. This was the first time CG Takaoka visited our society so it was important to show our best side – and we did. To those of you Consul General Takaoka addresses our who were able to make this luncheon – Thank You! members at our May luncheon.

June Luncheon Our luncheon in June was an ikebana presentation by Sandra Prachyl with assistance from Yoko Cotton. Teruko Green brought in one of her beautiful ikebana arrangements also. All three are members of the Ikebana International Fort Worth Chapter as well as the FWJS. Sandra’s actual creation of several ikebana arrangements right in front of us was the best way to get a sense of Ikebana. Thank you to Chef Julia Dunaway who began her preparation from early Sunday morning CG Takaoka receives from Harvey Yamagata to create our luncheon of Gomoku sushi so that the a photo book of Fort Worth and the Story of events committee can help in the assembly of the Fort Worth written in Japanese by his late sushi under Julia’s guidance. Nobuko Foshee father, Tadashi Yamagata.

made and brought in the sunomono for the luncheon.

Origami and Calligraphy Demonstrations Our members often volunteer to spread a better understanding of Japanese culture. On May 7th, several went to Westpark Elementary School in Benbrook to work with children on origami and calligraphy. In June, Asako Cosby, Haruko Herness, June Everly, Nobuko Foshee and Mitsue Crow went to Lily B. Clayton Elementary School in Fort Worth. We thank the volunteers for their time and skills – we know that these are all-day commitments of their time, but over one hundred children benefit from each of these demonstrations.
