Konnichiwa! Japanese Dinner
UW-Barron County Student Center
The community is invited to enjoy a traditional four-course Japanese dinner as a fundraiser to help fund playground equipment being built by UW-Barron County students who will be working in the Tsunami Zone in Japan late this spring.
The menu will feature fresh sushi prepared by Gordy’s sushi chef, shrimp and sweet dumplings, Japanese fried chicken or vegetarian noodles, green tea and Japanese sweets, and Japanese beer and wine cash bar.
Twelve students and faculty members from around the state are participating in this Study Abroad program that will take them to Ishinomaki, a coastal city in northeast Japan devastated by the tsunami that struck during the “3.11” triple disaster that included an earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown on March 11, 2011. Scheduled for the end of spring semester, the project will be led by UW-Barron County Senior Lecturer in English and Global Studies Lee Friederich and Engineering Professor Christa James-Byrnes.
