After some 12 years at Tonari Gumi, first as a volunteer and then as the Office Administrator, Junko Takashima’s last day of work at Tonari Gumi was on Friday, April 10, 2015.
In recognition of her long and exemplary service to Tonari Gumi, we will be holding a simple Farewell Reception on Wednesday, April 29th between 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm. It will be a “calling reception” in that people are encouraged to come to Tonari Gumi at any time between the hours indicated to express their appreciation to Junko.
Tonari Gumi will be providing tea and other drinks. Should you wish to bring some light snacks to share with others, you are welcome to do so.
Please note Junko has specifically requested those attending not to bring her flowers, presents or cash gifts. Instead, she is just happy to be able to see everyone and share special memories together.
