Sayonara BBQ – July 8th

By admin

Let’s send off the newest JETs as they depart for life in Japan! This event is organized to give the soon-to-depart JET participants another chance to meet JET alumni and other JETs departing from Portland and talk about the JET Program in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Plus, this is a chance for JET alums to wax nostalgic about their time in Japan with the most eager of audiences.

When: July 8th, 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Where: Gabriel Park (SW Portland), Picnic Area E

JETAA will provide utensils, a sizzling BBQ, cooler, and main dishes for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike to grill, but please bring a side dish, dessert, or snack to share if you like! Drinks are BYOB.

Family, friends, and pets are welcome to attend, and we hope to see as many of you there as possible!

Please RSVP to Matt so that we can get an idea of how many burgers, dogs, and veggie options to prepare and so that we don’t all end up bringing the same thing!
