Once again the Japanese Cultural Association of Manitoba (JCAM) sponsored the Japanese Pavilion at St. Joseph’s Parish Hall on College Street this year from July 31 to August 6 which was the first week of the 2 week cultural festival. Dance, taiko, koto, foods both traditional and innovative (like Spam Musubi – a tasty snack that originated in either Okinawa or Hawaii). All indications are that it was another roaring success. A full report on this amazing volunteer effort will be sent to you in September.
Volunteer Appreciation Night is Thursday September 1 for all Folklorama workers as well as those who have volunteered in any capacity for JCAM over the past year. There will be food, games and a great party atmosphere starting at 6 p.m. Let the office know if you’re coming so we’ll have enough food on hand!
