CJCA will be hosting the first KEIROKAI at the Nikkei Centre on Sunday, January 31, 2016 in place of their annual New Year’s Party for 2016.
Keirokai or Keiro no Hi (better known in Japanese) is not exactly a holiday but is a national “Respect for the Aged Day” in Japan. Celebration activities take many forms across Japan and within our own Japanese Canadian communities across the country. This is a special day to honor our more seasoned members of the community and to show our appreciation for their contributions to our cultural heritage.
If you have reached the age of 65 and are a member, in good standing, of the Calgary Japanese Community Association, we invite you to attend our Keirokai Celebration. Any members in good standing, as of December 1, 2015 who have reached the age of 80 years or older, are invited to attend this event as our special guests.
Tickets are $20 each for anyone 65 to 79 years of age. Light lunch will be served accompanied by a short program of local cultural entertainment along with other surprises.
Date: Sunday, January 31, 2016
Time: 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Place: Nikkei Cultural and Seniors Centre
2236 – 29th St. SW
