March 3rd is “Momo-no-Sekku” (also known as Girls’ Day) in Japan. Originally, it was celebrated by families with young daughters for their children’s happiness and good health. Here at Momiji, we will celebrate “Momo-no-Sekku” as the arrival of spring, wishing health and happiness to all children, as well as to our Momiji tenants and their families and friends from the community.
There will be a festive lunch, special entertainment guests, and much more!
Don’t miss this fun-filled seasonal special event!
Purchase a lunch ticket ($11.00) from Shivonne/Scott by Thurs. Feb. 28!
An annual much-loved community tradition is fast approaching! Please join us on Saturday, March 25, from 12:00 to 3:30 p.m. at Momiji’s Frank H. Hori Community Centre (3555 Kingston Road, Scarborough) for the 2017 Momiji Community Bazaar. There will be something for the entire family to enjoy: delicious home made Japanese cuisine (including manju, karinto, sushi and chow mein), a bake table with a vast assortment of treats, a large Silent Auction, and a Collectibles Corner where you will find a treasure or two.
Our Community Bazaar is only a success with your help. Volunteers are needed leading up to the day of the Bazaar, with the sorting of donations, participating in one, or more, of our famous bees: karinto, sushi, vegetable preparation and pie-making, and of course, set-up. Volunteers are also needed to help clean up after the Bazaar.
Proceeds from the Bazaar support Momiji’s programs and services. Hundreds of seniors benefit each year from the funds this event generates. For more information on volunteering, contact Jovel at 416-261-6683 x234 / email@example.com.

Do you want to help make a difference in the lives of Japanese Canadian seniors? Preparations are already underway for Momiji’s 2016 Community Bazaar (Saturday, April 2), and here is how you can help! If your New Years resolution is to downsize, why not donate your gently used, previously loved treasures? We are always looking for items such as Japanese wares, housewares, books, china, Corningware and Pyrex tea pots and coffee pots, mid-century modern pieces, and vintage linens. But please no used clothing or furniture. We are also in need of plants so if you have a green thumb, why not start growing plants from slips now? And if you work for or own a company that sells product or offers a service, perhaps you can get your company to donate to our silent auction or make a donation to help offset our Bazaar costs. If volunteering is of interest and you have a bit of time, we always looking for individuals who can attend one of our famous bees: karinto, sushi, tsukemono and vegetable prep and pie-making.
Proceeds from the Bazaar, Momiji’s largest annual fundraising event, support Momiji’s programs and services for seniors, allowing us to purchase items and provide services that we would not be able to afford otherwise. For example, Bazaar funds have been used to help purchase the vehicles we use to provide transportation for seniors, and to provide tasty, culturally-appropriate Japanese meals to frail and isolated seniors all around the GTA. Altogether, hundreds and hundreds of seniors benefit each year from the funds this event generates.
For more information on donating items or volunteering, contact Jovel at 416-261-6683 x234 / Jovel@momiji.on.ca, or Sheri-Lynn at 416-261-6683 x259 / Sheri-Lynn@momiji.on.ca.
In an event-filled 2015, today we wound down the year with family, friends and supporters at our traditional Toshikoshi Noodle Party. Happy and Healthy 2016 everyone!
