BIJAC EVENT - Nisei Lunch

_TIM1802 - Nisei Women and Children at MinidokaEach year, BIJAC honors our Nisei with a luncheon on the island. Our Nisei are second–generation Japanese Americans who were living on the island when World War II broke out. On February 19, 2007 — Day of Remembrance (the day of the signing of Executive Order 9066), nearly 100 guests and family members converged at Sawan Thai Restaurant. They had a wonderful time visiting with old friends and sharing stories.

Our 2nd annual Nisei luncheon was held on March 30, 2008 at Sawatdy Thai Cuisine restaurant (8780 Fletcher Bay Road NE, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110.) This day marked the 66th anniversary of a very sad day when Bainbridge Island Japanese were forced to leave the island.
