General Meetings

General meetings are held the 4th Tuesday of the month in February, March, April, May, June, September, October and November.

Meetings last about 60 to 90 minutes and consist of an opportunity to socialize with members and visitors and enjoy a Japanese culture focused enrichment presentation -  food, authors, art, history, language, etc. 

November's meeting is the Annual Business meeting.  We review the events of the year, budget and members vote on the following year's board of directors.

Currently meetings are hybrid and held in-person at the Meadowbrook Park Clubhouse, Birch Room and Zoom online.
