Onchan-shisho came to Oshio community center for the first time!

4/27/2011 Activity Report

Some of the public schools have started giving classes in Ishinomaki, so our program “Rainbow Crayons” is now on a different schedule.


One of the children drew a portrait of a volunteer.  We were very glad to see that!

We used to have our programs one hour each morning and afternoon, but now we start at 4 pm, after school.  Now we have more time to spare.


We played “Tataite kabutte jankenpon”, which is a game played by two people.  The one who wins rock-paper-sissors tries to hit the opponent’s head with a soft plastic toy before he blocks.

Onchan-shisho visited the Oshio community center for the first time!  (Onchan-Shisho is Shigeki’s nickname and literally means “middle-aged master”.)  We played badminton and baseball.


More people are starting to drive in Ishinomaki lately.  Many volunteers and other people are coming to see Ishinomaki.  We can still get gas for our cars, but it is expensive and the roads are jammed.  So I often take back roads.  This is why I got a bike.  We have to think about the gas cost over the long term.  The good thing about a bike is that I can see and feel the city directly!
