June 2012 Youth Ambassador trip Members: submit essays and ...

As a reminder of the assignment for the participants of the recent trip to Japan, kindly submit your essays about your experience in Hiroshima to Bob Green at email: secretary@sj-okayama.org

We will be having our ending meeting later this summer. We are expecting it to be on August 19 (Sunday) at San Jose’s Kelly Park. The board of directors has authorized some expenditure to be able to provide food (maybe barbecue?). It wll be held in the early afternoon. Additional information will be sent to you as the date approaches.

Note: Certificates will be presented to attendees that have completed their assignment at this last get-together before the 2012-13 school year. 

By the way, did we say “Good Job” to the recent HS graduates? It is a big accomplishment in your life as you move on to the next challenge.

Good to have you back!

Youth Ambassadors return from Japan

After a 9 hour red-eye from Tokyo, late Thursday afternoon the high school group has returned from their trip to Okayama and other parts of Western Japan. The author is still groggy from accompanying them (or at least being on the same midnight flight from Tokyo International Airport at Haneda field).

To avoid embarrassment from a fuzzy mind, this post will be updated as material is placed on the Youth page. The pictures here are from the meeting in the Okayama Mayor’s office and the youth and parents present on the day leaving for Japan. We think the trip went well.
