Young Tradition Touring Group ‘happy hour’

We’ve been doing some ‘happy hour’ Zoom calls as we mourn the cancellation of the Japan tour, which would have been happening this week.  Thanks to those who Zoomed in on Monday (4/20). Can’t share the video but members got the note that Emma S sent from Japan, including the frog round words she promised, which she, her husband and daughter sang on the video at the shrine they were visiting near Kurayoshi.

Hold 5/16 at 1pm for the next Touring Group Zoom session. If that’s impossible for anyone, we can adjust – let me know. Will send an invite with password information when its set.

Kristin mentioned this during the call yesterday, and everyone said they’d like to see it: https://youtu.be/l0u-WhCdp4c. Lots of happy, familiar faces in there!
