Signature Project: Monthly FHP Beautification

Eleven members and friends got up early again and gathered at the Frances Hashimoto Plaza for our monthly beautification project on Sunday, April 24!  For many, this was the second weekend clean up in a row, but we were all happy to see the end results.  Our Community Service Chair/VP/President-Elect, Mike Okamoto, brought his impeccable drawing of the stone monument we are planning to install to honor late Frances Hashimoto at the plaza.  After the clean up, our own Yokko-san and her husband/designated photographer, Hiroyuki-san treated us with tasty coffee and sweets.  Thanks always for your kind hospitality!
