Last Meeting - Quick Report
December 20: Highlights from JALT Conference and Annual Bonenkai
We had a very nice time hearing from several local members re. presentations and experiences at JALT 2014 in Tsukubakl, and then had a productive brainstorming session on ideas for upcoming programs. Intrepid participants then forged through the rain and Jozenji Dori "Pageant of Lights" crowds to join an even larger group for a delightful Bonenkai featuring beer, wine, food and--most importantly--great fellowship. Thanks to Cory, Marc and Joanne for coordinating the events, and to everyone for another excellent year of JALT Sendai!
