Hello everyone,
Hope you had a good time at the party and not too tired from it. Thank  
you all for helping and initiating great events throughout the semester.

My suggestion would be to have some common goals that would contribute  
to the university's dedication to create culturally-diverse  
educational environment. Something to promote Japanese House/Asian  
American activiites or acknowledge whoever contributed to this event.
Announcements, people performing music/songs (Japanese stuff, by  
students, etc.), poetry reading, etc. Acknowledgement of contributors  
would be important I think. If the number of participants is about the  
same, I would invite Japanese people from the community. I did not  
invite anyone thinking too many may come this time.
Potluck part may be advertised stronger next time. If participants  
prefer not to bring food, they can contribute by doing something such  
as making origami at the party and later send them to Hiroshima, for  
example. Create something to give away to nursing home...etc. This  
idea would tie into reaching a common goal and promoting Japanese  
cultural education.
Tea ran out so often. Bringing those electric boilers would be good next time.
Definitely liked those tables and plenty of space. I would vote for  
having the party again at the fireplace lounge.

Sorry for long e-mail. Please circulate your thoughts and ideas for  
next sushi party.

Otsukaresama deshita! (thank you for working hard!)
