Issei Day 2018

September 30, 2018 @ 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm

The Board of Directors of the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre extends an invitation to Issei Day on Sunday September 30, 2018, and would like to welcome all who are 70 years of age and older.

This year will be the 56th year of celebrating Issei Day. Last year approximately 325 Issei, Nisei, Sansei and Ijusha gathered in Kobayashi Hall to celebrate this annual event. We are also happy to have the sponsorship and support of the Momiji Health Care Society for a second year.

The day is full of activities, with entertainment of songs, odori and sing-alongs. As usual there will be a wonderful and tasty bento served during the intermission.

The program begins at 2:00pm and concludes around 5:00pm. To ensure that we are able to accommodate everyone with seating and a bento, we require that everyone pre-register at 416-441-2345 by Friday September 21, 2018. It is wonderful to see so many of our seniors come to this event but we are close to our maximum capacity. To ensure everyone is able to sit, relax and enjoy the afternoon, don’t delay and register today!

We look forward to seeing you.
