2016 Shinnenkai on 1/30!


Happy New Year and 明けましておめでとう!

We’ve got a lot planned for the new year, and our Annual Meeting/Shinnenkai will be the place and time to find out all the upcoming events. We will also be electing the officer positions (sans treasurer).

Join us to start off the new year with a big bang! Our Annual Meeting will be full of news of our events of the past year, upcoming planned events of 2016, entertainment, a kid’s corner, and of course, raffle prizes! It’s also when we’ll elect our new officers and talk about our plans for the coming year.

It’s open to all ages, and family-friendly! This is the time of year to come out of the woodwork and bring out everyone from babies to great-grandmothers, and reconnect with old friends and new. It’s a time to see new faces and new returnees, and catch up with your friends in JET that you haven’t seen in a while. Family members and children are welcome!
