The Little Tokyo Parkinson's Support Group will hold its next monthly meeting on Saturday, February 24. We are honored to have Dr. Phillip Ahn, who has been practicing after finishing his residency program at the University of Southern California at Los Angeles County Medical Center for the past 20 years and completing his Fellowship training for Clinical Neurophysiology at USC Hospital. His practice covers all aspects of neurology with special attention to the geriatric population with the degenerative conditions including Parkinson's Disease. He has been our guest speaker numerous times.

We welcome our Parkinson's members, and any interested individuals are welcome. 

Our meeting will be held on Saturday, February 24, 2024 from 10 AM-12N at Union Church of Los Angeles, 401 E. 3rd St., LA, CA 90013

Join us for another movie night and popcorn on March 2, Saturday, at 4pm in the Social Hall. We will be watching a very special movie I worked on - the contemporary silent black-and-white film “The Artist” - it got 10 Oscar nominations and 5 wins in 2012. It was all filmed in LA with several downtown LA locations - can you spot them? It is a romantic comedy, light-hearted and funny and entertaining, but with great visual style and high artistic qualities. No language barrier - a few titles in English.

100 Year Celebration

Sunday, March 10, 2024
1:00 PM
 
March 10, 2023 was the 100 year anniversary of the old Japanese Union Church Building but a ceremony was not held. 

Last year was also the 25th anniversary of the Union Center for the Arts and at least 2 original tenants East West Players and Visual Communications (VC).
 
The Japanese Union Church Building was built by Rev. Giichi Tanaka in 1922-1923 after he merged 3 Christian churches in 1918.
 
Rev. Giichi Tanaka wrote a “thank you” letter to the community one year after the church building was completed on March 10, 1924.
 
Little Tokyo Historical Society, Little Tokyo Service Center, Japanese American National Museum, East West Players, Visual Communications are planning a celebration event on March 10, 2024. A historical building plaque will be mounted and unveiled, as well as a sign on a post requested by LTHS.
Pastor, Counselor, and Author, Ken Yabuki
leads a discussion and group study of God’s Word.  

All are invited. Join each Sunday mornings from 9A-9:30A.
