Nakayoshi Monthly Newsletter

A brilliant Summer to you, Nakayoshi volunteer! 

we're writing to you from the docks of Pacifica, CA with its clear blue skies, rough ocean waves and frigid winds. Now that's a Bay Area Summer if you ask me! if the cold Summer weather's not your cup of tea though, perhaps joining Nakayoshi for our upcoming events will be. Check out those events below and be sure to visit ol' Pacifica sometime. Quite the jewel around the corner from San Francisco.
