We hosted Tago –san in 2013 for the anniversary of the teahouse and presented a beautiful replica of the tea house he built at our Botanical Gardens

Also in 2013 we hosted Mayor Yoshinari who enjoyed a Barons baseball game and formally thanked Birmingham for its $30,000.00+ in assistance after the earthquake/tsunami.

Also in 2013 we continued our annual quilt program whereby we send quilts for display at the Hitachi Civic Center
