Even though Tonari Gumi is getting ready to move to its new building in October, we are still celebrating the birthdays of our seniors. On Friday, September 6th, some 15 seniors who celebrate their birthdays in the months of July, August and September gathered on the 2nd floor of our current building to enjoy a great birthday party. While the space was a bit cramped, the spirit was expansive and everyone enjoyed being together.
Although Tonari Gumi’s regular programs are in recess during the month of September as we prepare to move into our new facilities, Tonari Gumi seniors are still getting together and enjoying outings as a group. Working and socializing together and helping each other are key parts of the Tonari Gumi spirit.
