OKK Enjoys End of Year Party

Okinawa Kenjin Club of Washington State (OKK) held its annual bonenkai end-of-year party on Dec. 5 at La Quinta Inn & Suites at Tacoma. Almost 80 attendees enjoyed a lunch of salmon and prime rib. The club welcomed new members, played bingo, danced and sang Christmas carols. OKK is preparing to travel as a group to Okinawa in October 2016 for the Sixth Worldwide Uchinanchu Festival (Sekai no Uchinanchu Taikai), where people of Okinawan descent from all over the world will gather on the island for the five day festival.
