Typical Friday at Tonari Gumi

Fridays are one of the busier days at Tonari Gumi because a number of our popular programs and classes take place on that day each week.  ù+æg  Friday 23 MAY 2014 01In addition, the real highlight of the day is our Japanese lunch, prepared by our dedicated and talented volunteers.  On Friday mornings there are two English conversation classes, an introductory and an intermediate class, which enable our seniors to improve their English conversation abilities and have an enjoyable time learning.  Also on Friday mornings, running onto the afternoon, is our ever popular craft club, where seniors learn how to make attractive and useful crafts which are then sold in our gift shop or at the Powell Street Festival to provide funding for Tonari Gumi.  A Japanese style lunch is prepared on Mondays and Fridays and this event is always popular with seniors.  ù+æg  Friday 23 MAY 2014 14Some seniors make it a point to come to Tonari Gumi’s lunches, even if they don’t participate in any of the other activities.  Good food and good company are always a major draw.  In addition, our volunteers have a good time preparing the food and seeing our seniors enjoy eating.  Each day is a special day at Tonari Gumi with different activities and programs happening every day.  Come and visit Tonari Gumi and drop-in some of our classes and programs.  For a modest drop-in fee, you can participate in all of our programs to see if you might enjoy them.  You need to be warned, however, most of our visitors “drop-in” on a class and find them so much fun that they never quit.  See you soon.
