The Tag Project at Pioneer Ocean View United Church August 2, 2009


We had a wonderful tag event on Sunday at the Pioneer Ocean View United Church of Christ. The volunteers there completed 5,000 tags!!!!! this included tying the ends of the tags, stamping the text, writing the names- with a few important volunteers organizing and categorizing the tags. The goal of 5,000 tags were reached!!
AND the chicken teriyaki bowls were really great!! Many thanks to the membership of POVUCC for hosting us and to the Fujinami family for planning and organizing the logistics there!


The Tag Project volunteer event will take place at the Pioneer Ocean View United Church of Christ on Sunday, August 2, 2009. There will be a delicious chicken teriyaki bowl lunch ($6.00) beginning right after worship at approx. 11:15am (Everyone is invited to attend the worship service at 10:00am). The Tag Project will begin after everyone finishes eating at approx. 12pm.

The POVUCC address is - 2550 Fairfield St., San Diego, CA 92110. Just off Hwy 15 - exit at Clairemont Dr, go east. R on Fairfield St and it dead-ends into the church parking lot.

Please RSVP to Coreen Fujinami (858) 414-2269 or povucc@sbcglobal.net for any questions and/or to let us know they're coming; especially to reserve a chicken teriyaki bowl (headcount is very important for the ladies cooking!) I am grateful for Coreen's enthusiasm and help and my mother, Reiko, and my aunt, Tae will be on hand! Be sure to stop by and say hello!!!

Thank you!!!

The Tag Project goes to the Tule Lake Pilgrimage


4000 TAGS FROM TULE LAKE WERE COMPLETED AT THE PILGRIMAGE! Many thanks to Yuki Mathias for rounding all these materials up and taking them to the pilgrimage and bringing them back and shipping to me despite such a busy schedule!! I appreciate it.


Yuki Mathias has stepped up to the plate and offered to help bring The Tag Project to the Tule Lake Pilgrimage, July 3-5, 2009. She and Keiko Kubo manned a table there with fliers, tags, stamps and a Tule Lake database, with the help of Jun Hanamoto and Peter Yamamoto. Thank you to all who participated and I look forward to working further with your group!!
