The Japanese population and Japan Club would like to thank everyone who came out to support Japan over the past few days! We will continue raising support through collection jars around the community for the next two weeks before turning over all proceeds to the American Red Cross.
The efforts of the past three days have been hugely successful. Whether through a monetary donation or an encouraging message written on the flag, every contribution from you all was deeply appreciated. To those of you who volunteered to stand at the tables or hold flags, we absolutely could not have managed without your help!
A student led Donation Drive for Tsunami and Earthquake Relief in Japan at Texas A&M University will be held on campus from 11:00AM to 8:00PM (Sbisa) on March 21, 22, & 23. Monetary donation booths will be set up in front of Sbisa, Academic Building, and Rudder Tower. Donations will go directly to Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief Efforts.
• 11 am-8 pm @ Sbisa Dining Center
• 11 am-6 pm @ Academic Building
• 11 am-6 pm @ Rudder Tower
Whether it's a dollar or ten dollars we sincerely appreciate your donations!
Individuals who are unable to make it to the booths have many options available such as online donations or wireless billing donations. (See links below)
Thank you to everyone who came out to Japan Club's first-ever Japanese Food Cooking Demo! You all made some tasty-looking food! Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, so we are planning to do this again next semester. Let us know if you have any ideas for things we can improve, different foods we can try, or anything else you'd like to share!
We hope everyone had a good break and a good first week back in class!
The club's first meeting will be on Tuesday, January 25th in Fermier 110. We will go over some of the plans for the semester and eat pizza and mochi! We look forward to seeing everyone!
For those of you who missed out on the meeting, here is a summary of what was covered:
☆ We are going to Houston to do karaoke on October 2nd (Not the 25th as originally planned).
☆ Conversation table schedules can be found on the calendar page.
❖ We will have our first meeting on Thursday, September 16th at 6:30pm in Rudder 707. ❖
❖The main part of the meeting will probably be less than 30 minutes, but you're welcome to stay as late as 7:45 and hang out with us! We'll have the calligraphy brushes and origami paper if you'd like to try it out! ❖
In case you haven't heard, we're holding conversation tables at 6:30 at Mugwalls Cafe this summer! Feel free to come out and chat with us!
