Riverside Elementary School will be hosting a fundraising/cultural event for the recent Japanese earhtquake/tsunami victims on June 10th, from 7-9 pm. 
 
The title of the event is:  WAVES OF FRIENDSHIP: An Evening of Giving, Sharing, and Learning from Japan
  
This will be an evening filled with opportunities to learn about Japan and the recent earthquake/tsunami.  The event opens with a lecture for children and parents on the Japanese experiences of earthquake and tsunami, storytelling of an old tale from Japan about a man who saved his village from tsunami, a shakuhachi (traditional Japanese bamboo flute) performance, and Japanese songs performed by Riverside students.  There will also be hands-on exhibits of traditional Japanese toys and games,children's books on earthquake and tsunami,  calligraphy, bake sale by the Do Something Club, fun food tasting, and more!   We will also exhibit essays by the students of the Tohoku International School in Sendai, Japan, about their earthquake experiences will be on exhibit, and will set up a table where people can write messages to them.  The event is open to the public.
 
All proceeds will go to the scholarship fund for students at the Tohoku International School whose families were severely affected by the earthquake/tsunami.
