Princeton Club of Japan Bonenkai (Japanese end of year social) December 15, 2018 Slainte Ebisu EVENT RECAP

On December 15, 2018, the Princeton Club of Japan hosted another successful gathering of our Japan based alumni.  The event was the club’s annual Japan bonenkai (end of year thanks party) and was held at Slainte Ebisu.  It turned out to be a great night because we were able to attract many first-time alumni and their continued active support is critical for the ongoing success of the club.  Class years 1970 through 2018 were represented with a nice sized crowd filling the room with vibrant conversations about their time at Princeton.  20% of attendees were the age 30 years and younger which was great!

 The evening was generally spent enjoying good food and free-flowing beverages, socializing and business networking.  Newly appointed Japan club President Ed Rogers ‘87 gave his presentation about the club’s new officer leadership and it’s goals to build a well run organized alumni regional club with high alumni visibility serving the needs and interests of Princeton University alumni based in Japan.  Many events are being planned for 2019 ranging from large group community service projects to small sized discussion groups on Japanese everyday life topics alumni face living in Japan.
