Our debut at our new location, the Kameshima Community Center, got to a wonderful start.
We had a new member, Luci, and two; Joan and Roy, who have not been with the NW for many years,

Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing
what you saw… remembering – because you can’t take it in all at once.
