Meeting Minutes: We successfully had a wonderful year-end party at Kaz’s place thanks to his family’s hospitality!!  Kaz’s wife, Kusuko, and his son, Teruo joined the meeting.  We also had several guests, Mr. Hiroshi Imanaka (Rumiko’s hubby!!!), Denet (Toastmaster president at Cisco) and Mr. Takashi Sato.  Mr. Sato made a comment at the end of the meeting that he will consider being a member and we are looking forward to having him.

We started the meeting with table topics managed by Mayumi.  The topics were gathered from members who attended that night.

Katoko was in charge  of grace and toast of the day.  She shared her memories of  Bill Wells.  His passing was a great loss to our family, SVJETS.   Thanks to his dedication we are what we are and we will always remember him.  It is little personal info, but the reason why I am updating you with what happened in the last meeting because this was one of the suggestions he made when we had a first officer’s meeting back in August, 2007.  I will do my best to keep it up.  

We had four speakers for the main session managed successfully by Master of Toastmaster, Naoki!  Nobu showed a ‘magic’ of his special tool….Rice cooker!  Nobu made three or four dishes (it went so fast, so I cannot remember exactly) with the ‘magic’.  Kei encourage us, who are non-engineering audience that we are programming in our daily life without realizing it.  It is very encouraging especially for a person like me, who is not a technical person.  Kaz shared his precious memory of his Japan trip.   He showed beautiful autumn pictures of Japan.  Chase was not planning to speak in front of us prior to this day, but he gave us great pointers how to stay fit and healthy like him!  Last but not least, Koichi made his first speech in our club, ice breaker.  He did a great job!  I personally cannot believe it was his first speech.  Now, we know he is tall but it is not because of he drinks milk (this is one of Japanese myths that if you drink milk in your childhood, it helps you to be tall…).

We also had great dishes from everybody who joined the meeting on that day!  I hope we can continue our tradition to have a pot-luck end-of-the-year meeting to celebrate a great year we had and ahead of us!!!  Hope you all had a great holiday season!!
