An Invitation to "Majiwaru"

"Majiwaru" means to gather together, or to have fellowship. This hand-made invitation sent out to the women of the Women's Missionary Society Installation Dinner at the Alondra Club in Lawndale on November 4, c.1970. About 100 Japanese American women attended, with a greeting by Mrs. June Inouye: "Mina-sama, kon ban wa." A detailed article on the event reads:

"The Japanese character 'majiwaru' was used in the table decorations and on the programs in a setting of cherry blossoms.

The invocation was offered by Mrs. Jean Komae and Mrs. Mitsey Miki beautifully sang 'God Bless This House,' accompanied by Mrs. Molly Nishimoto. Mrs. Claudine Stratton brought an inspiring devotional thought on 'The Fellowship of the Church.' The beautiful voice of Mrs. Frances Sekiguchi, as she sang two songs in Japanese, floated through the hushed silence of the banquet room. Following the prayer of thanksgiving, a delicious dinner of prime rib was served and thoroughly enjoyed by all."
