Fridays at Tonari Gumi are a hive of activity, with volunteers and seniors involved in a variety of different classes, workshops and cooking activities. The video below lets you see what happens in Tonari Gumi’s English conversation classes (both intermediate and introductory), Tonari Gumi’s Craft Club and a look at Tonari Gumi’s deliciously famous Friday lunch. See what happens and then decide if you want to participate – either to help as a volunteer or to participate yourself and enjoy some of the memorable experiences. If you are interested in any of our more than 40 different programs and activities, check our program guide at the following link: PROGRAM; or call Tonari Gumi at (604) 687-2172. You won’t regret it–that’s a promise!
Every month we have a “Kuishinbokai” or “Gourmand Club” gathering at Tonari Gumi where seniors and other generations have an opportunity to learn how to prepare and enjoy different dishes. On Wednesday, May 21, 2014 about a dozen people gathered at Tonari Gumi to learn how to make homemade gyoza. As you can see from the results from the video below, the event was a success and everyone had fun participating. That’s the spirit of Tonari Gumi – sharing and learning together while having a good time. If you are interested, you should join Tonari Gumi – either to share as a volunteer or to learn as a member – or both. The video was created by our volunteer, Shogo Kido, and this post was created by another of our faithful volunteers, Tatum Wulff.
