Field Trip! Shofuso Japanese Tea House

As the planned A&S activity for April, I am organizing a shire Field Trip to the Shofuso Japanese Tea House in Fairmount Park. The Japanese American Society is hosting two Tea Ceremonies for their annual Cherry Blossom Festival on Saturday April 8th.

I already bought my mine   so if you are definitely interested and can go, please private message me asap. ~Aurddeilen Name(required) Email(required) Comment(required)...
