Event Album: 2018 Year-End Luncheon (Boonenkai): 12/01/2018
Event Note

 We looked forward to this day to get to have the MHJCA’s special Makunouchi Bento box made by our members, again just like last year. Even packing the Bentos are somewhat fun and that is exactly what the “community” is about. Now that we can get many of typical Japanese ingredients to make Bento easily, you can’t imagine how it must’ve been when they were not available a long time ago and people came to meet other Japanese then were treated to Makunouchi Bento. Time changed but the basic needs are the same. If a box of Bento can make thirty (30) something people including our members and their guests very happy, it was worth for us to work a little harder to plan such a special event. Having videos showing some events in 2018 was another treat, so as the mini-market. People may think it’s not that much, but it does take time and lots of work.
So again, I would like for everyone to remember that it could not have been done without these volunteer members who had dedicated their time and labor to prepare for this special treat. We are all thankful.
Year 2018 is coming to end. I hope every one of today’s participants experienced another joy in getting together and talking about what would be the next year’s resolution.
Thank you, everyone.

 昨年と同じ様に会のメンバーで作った幕の内弁当を頂けるこの日を楽しみにしていました。それらをパックすることだけでも何かしら楽しいものです。正にそれが「コミュニティー」そのものだと思います。今こそ普通お弁当に入れる日本の食料品が簡単に手に入りますが、それらがなかなか手に入らない時代に皆で集まって幕の内弁当のおもてなしを受けた時の感激は想像もつきません。時代は変わりましたが、基本的に求めるものは同じだと思います。もしお弁当で30人以上の会員とゲストの参加者に喜んで頂けるのであれば、ちょっといつものイベントより大変ではあってもやりがいがあります。今年のイベントのビデオ映写、それからミニマーケットも簡単に出来ると思われそうですが、時間と多大な労力が必要とされます。ですから、皆さんにはこれらのボランティアの方々の努力無しではこの様な特別な催しものは出来ないことを十分に知っておいて頂きたいものです。ぜひ感謝しましょう。 2018年も終わりに近づきました。今日参加頂いた方々には皆さんで集まっていっしょに来年の目標なりを話して楽しんで頂いたことを願います。有難うございました。 新江 緑 会長
