San Diego JACL 2017 Annual Picnic

The 66th Annual JACL Community Picnic will be held on Sunday June 25th at East Crown Point Shores at 11:00 A.M.  This year's event is especially important as it falls on the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066 which led Japanese Americans into WWII internment.  Your support and participation in this year's event will fund continued education about the executive order's impact on the Japanese American community.

Come out for a beautiful day at Mission Bay as we will be hosting our annual opportunity drawing ($1,000, $500 & $250 cash), opportunity drawing prizes, gift basket contest, inflatable jumper, games for all ages, geta races, hawaiian shave Ice and more.
