Earlier this week, Paul had a chance to visit Los Angeles on behalf of the Japan ICU Foundation. Read about his day with several generations of ICU alumni.
On Friday, September 16th, the JICUF hosted an ICU alumni & friends reception in New York City to welcome President Junko Hibiya and Professor Heather Montgomery from Tokyo. The two guests from ICU were in the city to attend the JICUF’s semi-annual Board of Trustees meeting. The reception was held at Shinbashi restaurant in Midtown and was attended by approximately 80 alumni, friends, trustees and staff.
The 2016 National Japan Bowl was held April 14 & 15, 2016 at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Sakura Matsuri, the nation’s largest one-day Japanese cultural event, was held the next day in Washington, D.C. It was my pleasure to represent the Foundation at both events this year.
