The Happy Time’s Café for June with guests, Kristy Oshiro and her Japanese Taiko Drumming group was so exciting and educational. We learned not only about the art of Taiko drumming but also about the history and culture of Taiko through Japanese stories regaled by Kristy while performing. Participants who enjoyed the café not only got an incredible special performance but also got a chance to play the drums with Kristy’s instructions and I must say for first time drummers they sounded amazing! Kristy teaches classes in Sacramento. If you are interested in signing up for a class or getting more information please visit www.kristyoshiro.com.
We also commemorated National Best Friend’s Day and spent a good time connecting with each other as friends while enjoying some organic food and refreshments. Toward the end of the Café we had a competitive game of can toss in which we awarded a few prizes to those with the highest score! We sure had some folks with good arms! FUN TIMES!
Next Month’s Café’ we will continue with the drum theme as we have another special guest coming!!! So please join us!
