Come and See Tonari Gumi’s New Building and Check Out Our New Programs!

This year, for the first time in its existence, Tonari Gumi has been able to move into its own newly completed facilities.  _MG_8000Over a period of a little more than one year, together with everyone in the community amazingly we were able to raise more than $530,000 through our “Home Away from Home Building Fund Drive” and other fundraising activities.  However, because completion of our new facilities took_MG_8004 much longer than expected, we were forced to cancel many of our activities for close to half a year and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this caused.  Nonetheless, we were finally able to celebrate our grand opening on November 23, 2013.

Starting from 2014, we look forward to a “revitalized” Tonari Gumi starting its activities in our new facility.  _MG_8020We know that you will be impressed. Come and visit our new facilities in 2014 and look for our new and revamped programs and activities as we progress into the New Year. We will be providing additional details over the coming weeks. _MG_8024In this context, we are also working to be able to announce a further new look to our programing to start on April 1, 2014.
