Bento and Special Birthday Gift Pickups

UPDATE 9/11/2020: Due to the unhealthy air quality caused by the local fires, we have decided to cancel the bento and special birthday gift pickup component of tomorrow’s Keiro no Hi Festival. The health and safety of our community’s older adults is our top priority and right now, it is not safe to be going out in these conditions.
