The Central Vancouver Island Japanese Canadian Cultural Society (aka 7 Potatoes) received a Community Renewal grant. The grant helped us to purchase equipment, supplies, and signage for our events, supported facility rentals and honoraria for paid entertainment to support our six events in the year.
The new supplies have enabled us to have better signage and entertainment and not have to rent equipment for our events. Our goal was to attract more new members and volunteers. We believe this goal was met with our New Year’s Shinnenkai having 173 people attend. This was a new record for us.
We would like to thank the NAJC and the Community Renewal Fund Committee for supporting this project.
