Starting in September of this year, Tonari Gumi’s Table Tennis Club began once again. With a small group of ardent players, the sounds of balls being batted back and forth and cries of victory and defeat can be heard again at Tonari Gumi. Besides being great exercise, it’s also a great way to meet new friends. We need more players, however, and if you’re interested please register at Tonari Gumi. Drop-in’s are welcome and you can join at anytime. See you there!
We are thrilled to have Margaret Gallagher, host of CBC Radio One’s Hot Air, be the emcee of our 14th Annual Premium Sake Tasting Night on October 10th 2015. Ms. Gallagher has been a regular part of CBC Radio One’s The Early Edition since 2001, and was the BC host of CBC Radio 2’s Canada Live. In addition to her award-winning work on the radio, Ms. Gallagher is actively involved in community outreach. She has tirelessly donated her time and efforts in supporting many Vancouver groups and has hosted a variety of arts and community events, including: UBC & SFU Alumni Associations, Asian Heritage Month, The Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Vancouver International Folk Music Festival and Hapa-pooloza. She was also involved with Ganbare Japan!, a benefit concert held for those affected by the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Tohoku, Japan. Please join us for an incredible night of premium sake offerings, great food and silent auction/raffle draws. Tickets are available here.
