Culture Club has been one of my favorite activites to participate in here in Japan. I had a blast getting to know some sweet Japanese ladies, seeing parts of their culture, and getting to give them a tiny taste of America as well. Like a lot of the programs here, it doesn't run in the summer months. Mostly because a lot of us military wives are mommies too, so we have to go with the school year. Anyway, we had a closing ceremony at the end of May. The theme this year was "New Orleans Mardi Gras/Jazz/Cajun" and it went over well.
The tables set up and people coming in for the event.
A slideshow played in the background with pictures from each groups events. I was in charge of getting the pictures together for our group. That's our group there, at one of our cooking events.
They received the masks from us, we gave our group photo books of all our events from the year. I made them, and they turned out nice, if I do say so myself :)
Culture Club will start up again this fall, and I will be participating again for sure. I really enjoyed everyone this year and can't wait to see more of Japan through this experience!
