Issei Day

October 6, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm

The Issei Day Committee and the Board of Directors of the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre extends an invitation to Issei Day on Sunday October 6, 2019, and would like to welcome all who are 70 years of age and older.

This year will be the 57th year of celebrating Issei Day. Last year approximately 350 Issei, Nisei, Sansei and Ijusha gathered in the Kobayashi Hall to celebrate this annual event. The day is full of activities, with entertainment of  songs, odori and singalongs. As usual there will be a wonderful and tasty bento served during the intermission.

The program begins at 2:00pm and concludes around 4:30pm.

To ensure that we are able to accommodate everyone with seating and a bento, we require that everyone preregister at 416-441-2345 by Friday September 20, 2019.
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. So don’t delay and register today! We look forward to seeing you.
