July 26, 2012
In response to a friendship link and visit from Japanese Soroptimists in December, four Grosse Pointe Soroptimists traveled to Japan in May.

The local women participated the observance of the 30th anniversary of the Soroptimist International Hikone, Signa, Japan.

Grosse Pointe members gave an evergreen tree to be planted in Hikone honoring Hikone's anniversary.

The Hikone members gave Grosse Pointers a silk kimono embroidered with white cranes and flowers.
