Tanpopo No Kai Holds Bonenkai

Tanpopo no Kai, a Japanese women’s club in the South Puget Sound area, gathered for its annual end-of year-party at La Quinta Inn & Suites on Nov. 28. About 130 attendees enjoyed lunch and performances including karaoke and dance. The club will mark its 30th anniversary in 2016, and President Yuko Toth said that the group will continue to support friendship among its members and community service.
