Dear Florida JETAA Members,
This is your South Florida Regional Representative, Wendy Lo, we will be holding our 2ndannual JETAA Tanabata get together on Saturday, July 19th at 4pm.
This year our president, Bahia and her husband Chris, have kindly offered their home for us to have the JETAA Tanabata party. Bahia’s place is in Miami, 33134
In the tradition of a Japanese summer festival I am suggesting that people attending to wear a yukata or jinbei. I have a few ladies yukatas with obi that I can lend out for the party and three men’s jinbei and one men’s yukata (but no obi).
I will also have some tanzaku slips in which you can write your wishes for Tanabata. Luckily, Bahia and Chris have Bamboo growing in their front yard so we can tie them onto the branches.
I know it will be past the actual Tanabata date, but it’s the spirit of it all that counts and this was the only available date.
This is a potluck so please feel free to bring a food item or drink.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 16th. If you are bringing a guest please include that in your RSVP.
If you plan to bring a food item, please let me know and I will place that on the list.
Parking is extremely limited, so please RSVP, Bahia will email parking instructions and her address to those who RSVP as the date approaches.
This is a great way to meet new and old JET alumni and to reconnect to our time in Japan. I hope to see you there!
JETAA-FL, South Florida Rep.
