Club Set for July Fourth

The Club is gearing up for its annual Independence Day Celebration on July Fourth.

The all-day event, which is expected to draw hundreds of Members and guests, kicks off with a morning Fun Run/Walk, led by Olympic gold medalist and Member Koji Murofushi.

Other organized activities include a basketball tournament and street b-ball demonstration, kids' games, a ceremony attended by US Ambassador Caroline Kennedy and Prince and Princess Hitachi, music performances, a traditional barbecue buffet and an evening dinner in CHOP Steakhouse.

This year's party doubles as a fundraiser for USO Japan, a nonprofit that supports American military personnel and their families.
