Dear SFNers,
Hello and once again Happy New Year.

It has been just over 3 weeks since our SFN Shinnenkai, and time really is flying by.

I hope you are all doing well, and getting a good start to 2013!

It is that time again to start our monthly meetings for SFN to continue to organize and support out activities for Santa and Friends Nagoya. Below is an overview of our first official 2013 SFN meeting. We are inviting all those interested to bring some ideas to make 2013 the best year yet for our organization. We will be deciding our 2013 Calendar at the next meeting and would love to hear your ideas. Also we hope to implement a number of committees this year to help strengthen our organization.
