At our club meeting on June 24th, we welcomed Yuko Tsuji who is a member of our Soroptimist Friendship Link from SI Aquarmarine Kure near Hiroshima, Japan.
Yuko has made 3 visits to our club and we always love seeing her and as usual exchanged gifts. She told us about her club’s ongoing project which is to raise funds for the disastrous flooding her area received last year. There were 800 landslips which destroyed bridges, roads and train lines and 200 people lost their lives, Their latest event to raise funds is a concert on August 11th when a very well-known orchestra from Tokyo will be playing. We wish them well and hope that the concert will be very successful.
