Surely it cannot be summer again! Where did the past year go?
The last time I sat down to write a PR piece for the Hyogo Times I had just officially begun my duties as a member of the AJET National Council. As many of you know I have held the positions of Block 6 Representative and the Director of Alumni Relations since June last year. As of June 1 this year I have handed over the reigns to Tyler Bissonette another Hyogo JET who will represent our prefecture as well as Kyoto and Shiga on a national scale.
I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to each and every person that volunteered or participated in any way with a Hyogo AJET or Block 6 event this year. I hope that you all had as much fun being involved as I did representing you. I look forward to continuing on as a Hyogo AJET PR rep next year and also as the Director of Alumni Relations on the National Council this coming year as well.
Okay, enough of that! Coming up this month for Hyogo AJET is another Book Club event. If you like reading and would like to spend an afternoon in a comfortable cafe, chatting about this monthâ€™s book (From the Fatherland with Love by Ryu Murakami) then please join us. The event will be held on June 14, so mark the day in your diary.
Of course it is getting to that time of the year again when we begin to farewell the leaving JETs and in typical HAJET fashion we will be sending off our dear friends and colleagues on July 11 with a night at the Heineken Beer Garden in Sannomiya . We will be meeting at 6:30 at tits park one final time and heading over to share our first (and last) kanpai as a group. If you are interested in this event please head over to the Hyogo AJET Facebook page or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and RSVP.
Thatâ€™s all from me for now. Stay cool in summer and see you all soon!
