In spring this year, Jane Nimi received Honorary Lifetime Membership. This recognition is belated as you can imagine, any person who receives a lifetime membership has been serving the organizations for many years. Jane, is a good friend to us all here at Nikkei Place, and we have appreciated her support through the years to the seniors and to the cultural community.
Jane helped create a thriving flower arrangement program at Nikkei Home. For over 15 years, she served as a volunteer on various programs including the ever popular blood pressure measure at the Powel Street Festival.
And, to some she is best known as the stalwart and backbone of support to her late husband, Robert, who served for many years on the boards of both organization, and notably the president of the Nikkei Seniors Health and Housing Society for numerous years. We are the grateful members of our community who have benefited from Jane’s kindness, dedication and service.
The Nikkei Place Honorary Lifetime Membership is a joint effort of the organizations to recognize those individuals who have been a member volunteer for 10 years or more and have been an outstanding individual for 20 years or more. Nikkei Place will be recognizing individuals each year, and Jane Nimi is the first recipient. As an Honorary Lifetime Member Jane will receive a membership for life from both organizations.
Congratulations and thank you Jane!
