How quickly the years have flown, since doors of Shiraoi house opened with the official ribbon cutting ceremony Sept. 4, 2004.
Where has the time gone? So much has happened these past 10 years as we
continue with our successes.
On this 10th anniversary there’s another momentous occasion with City officials joining us at 1 p.m. for cake cutting ceremony, Aug. 23. We have invited Mayor Sjostrom, City Council, Chamber of Commerce, MLA Coralee Oaks and more.
Join us, lots to do inside Shiraoi House with our 10 years celebration, on the same day as Art in the Park, in LeBourdais Park also on the patio of Shiraoi House.
Inside Shiraoi House we will have many things to do, such as calligraphy writing your name in Japanese, playing with Japanese toys, trying on Kimonos and getting your photo taken in a kimono, also learning to make origami in different shapes.
We will serve water, juice and green tea throughout the day. As well as cake being served at 1 p.m.
Shiraoi House will be open that day 10:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Also on the patio there will be separate activities – making oriental fans and wind socks.
Quesnel and Shiraoi, Japan have been celebrating our Twinning Society for almost 34 years. In 2015, we will have a delegation traveling to Shiraoi and continuing our twinning relationship.
We have a phone and answering machine at Shiraoi House for anyone who would like to contact us, 250-992-6532.
We will be checking our messages as often as we can and get back to anyone who calls.
Regular monthly meetings start again in September and
run throughout the year.
We also rent Shiraoi House for groups, events, and parties.
