Happy New Year from Nikkei Place! 2013 was not only a year of accomplishment for Nikkei Place; it was a year of promise for the future. In 2013, Nikkei Place reached out to the entire community by joining with other major organizations to establish the Nikkei Alliance to unite the community and to represent all Nikkei in Greater Vancouver. We made great strides working toward the establishment of a much-needed Dementia Unit at Nikkei Home to allow our seniors to age-in-place at Nikkei Place, something we promised all along. 2013 saw the successful launch by Nikkei Place of the first annual Nikkei Matsuri enjoyed by young and old alike. This new Japanese family festival promises to be even more fun in 2014! The 2013 Nikkei Place Golf Tournament was bigger and better than ever and will be even bigger in 2014. And in 2014, the Nikkei Place Community Awards Dinner will celebrate the accomplishments of Nikkei throughout the community and beyond. Our National Museum continued to tell the story of Nikkei history in Canada with outstanding live exhibits and on-line. Help Nikkei Place continue our good work in 2014 by becoming a member and by making a financial contribution.
