Mr.Jeff DeVries
 I took my position as a Trustee of the Radburn Association in January of this year, and asked to become chairman of the Ryokuen Toshi committee.  My first efforts were to re-establish a cultural connection with our friends in Japan, and I started by communicating with the principal of Radburn School.  She is in a program of pen-pals, artwork exchange and video conferencing.  I will continue to work with her on this now that the new school year has started.
 One of our Radburn residents, Mrs. Debbie Zlotowitz, will be visiting Japan as a Japanese Fulbright Scholar from November 12 to November 30 of this year.  She will be in Tokyo for five (5) days during her visit and she would like to visit Ryokuen.  I have encouraged her to make time for a homestay visit if possible.
