** Summary of Food Fair **
Nishimachi Food Fair had another successful year! With wonderful weather, great food, and company, it was a fabulous event. Nishimachi-Kai operated its annual Alumni Cafe, selling popcorn, iced coffee, soft drinks, red and white wine, can Chu-Hi, Mako's Baked Goods, and Nishimachi-Kai merchandise. Many friends of the Nishimachi community stopped by for a quick 'hello' to others. Mr. Michael Hosking, our new headmaster from 2016 school year, also visited the cafe and had a quick chat with some of the N-Kai members. Thank you to those who came out to volunteer and those who came out to support by purchasing items. We hope more can join us at Food Fair 2016!
