JAFWA operating in Winter hours! Program starts at 4:15PM!

Come one, come all! Nominations are still open for the upcoming JAFWA elections for next week! Bring forth your vision of JAFWA and get people to vote for you. We (the current committee) just need a written nomination form indicating your intention to nominate yourself, along with your membership number.

We thank Sally for for stepping up and giving us a fish and chip run last session. Any body else going to selflessly volunteer for a food run this week?

This week there will be several exciting changes to JAFWA‘s regular program, as we have 4 time-slots opening up this week. Though one of them may be a preview item, as the 3rd season of “Devil is a Part-timer” has not yet screened in Japan (sorry to all those people who voted for it in the survey). Otherwise we will have the next season of a couple of favourites, and a slightly surprising choice starting in the program this week. Thanks to everyone who filled in the Survey at the end of June.
