This year’s JSS annual volunteer appreciation party was held at JCCC Hosaki Room on Sunday, November 10, 2013. More than 50 volunteers and staff members, some with their spouses, took part in the day’s event. David Ikeda, President, thanked everyone and Kiyoshi Dembo, VP and program chair, said that the total time put in by volunteers reached the equivalent of three full time staff members for the year.
The board members thanked them all on behalf of the JSS for their dedication and enabling attitude that contributed tremendously toward the successes of the various JSS programs. Tak Yoshida and his wife, who are also long-term supporters for the popular Hot Lunch and other programs, catered the delicious food including oden and grilled mackerel.
A volunteer coordinator, Yoshie Shimizu took care of raffle prizes donated by JSS board members and there were more than enough gifts for those who attended the function. We hope those who missed out this year can attend next year’s festivities.
