Annual Meeting 2008
New officers and
directors were elected to
serve one year terms and are listed on the organization
We had a good year financially, ending about $3000
ahead for 2008.
The Japan Society of Fairfield County donated
$1000 from the Uezumi Memorial to help purchase an original painting by
Genjiro which has been donated to the Greenwich Historical Society. It
was unveiled at our annual meeting.
The new Kamishibai on
Genjiro was presented for the first time by Diane Barton, part of a
committee, who completed the work started
by the late Noboru Uezumi. We also have established an Uezumi Award.
We were again treated to Dr. Tom Hedberg's
wonderful presentation on the Beginnings of
Telecommunications in Japan from 1875-1900.
