Dear SFNers,

Our annual SFN Christmas Event held on December 10th was very successful. We would like to thank all of you for your wonderful support and cooperation.

Over 160 children from 5 different orphanages gathered at our Christmas event this year with the welcoming live-music played by Sound Web.

This year's Christmas event was in combination with a theme - Just like the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020. Therefore, not only it began with a marching by all the children representing each country, but also they eagerly participated in sport-activities such as Obstacle Course, Tama-ire (Throwing balls into baskets), Tug A War and Relay, and the winners were given gold, silver and bronze medals at the awards ceremony, not to mention that all the children were given their long-awaited Christmas gifts from our Santa Clause in the end. We could not have done any of these without you!

One other thing to note this year was that we had volunteers from 20 different countries and we highly appreciate your invaluable effort to purchase gifts for the children, attending our pre-meetings, preparing each country's flag and quizzes, making balloons, face-painting and getting up super early on the day for the preparation of our lunch. Thank you very very much!

While your continuous support has kept and will keep all the children smiling, SFN will continue to thrive together with you. Our very first meeting as well as Shinnen-kai (New Year's party) will take place on January 20th (Sat). We will inform you about it with more details early next month, so please stay tuned.

In closing, we would like to express our sincerest gratitude for your support and cooperation. We are looking forward to working with you again next year.

The directors of SFN
