The Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) sponsored the 9th annual Aki Kurose Middle School Beautification Project. Mori Kurose-Rothman, one of Aki Kurose’s grandsons, organized the clean up for the second year. Rothman is a sophomore at New York University.
Approximately 25 volunteers trimmed plants, pulled weeds, and spread wood chips in gardens. Volunteers included Rep. Bob Hasegawa and Tom Rasmussen of the Seattle City Council. ♦
