JASSC Membership Potluck

*** Flash!  The potluck is full!  Bear Creek Park limits our attendance, and we have reached the maximum.

We are so sorry if you were unable to register, but we'll try to find a larger venue next year.  Meanwhile, watch for the Bazaar, and our annual Holiday Dinner. ***

Our first JASSC Membership Potluck. Good News! This year we were able to coordinate our annual membership event with the student group from Fujiyoshida and they will give a performance as well!! This will be a fun, relaxed, and family oriented event that we hope every member will attend. What’s different? Instead of paying a portion of the usual dinner cost, members will provide side dishes to accompany the BBQ meat entrees. Just a little “out west” for our Fujiyoshida guests.
