The next meeting will be at the Chamber, Monday, July 20 at 6 PM, potluck, followed by our business meeting.


Dear Members and Friends:

Once again we had an enthusiastic turn out for our meeting on June 29. The principal activity was receipt of Kei's report from Yamagata, and acceptance of action items by participants in preparation for the Yamagata "trade-fair." We really appreciate the flow of good ideas from you all, and look forward to hearing about progress you have made.

Our understanding of this event is still unfolding, but here is where we are now:


We need to continue to work on:

Insurance would have to be obtained to protect against loss or damage of the products during shipping, and at Yamagata.

So, we would like to discuss how to proceed.

See you at the meeting,


Charlie and Yoko
