Club President Message on Kyushu Disaster
Club President John Durkin informed Members in a message that no Members or Club staff had been caught up in the devastating earthquakes in Kyushu, including, in particular, the Kumamoto area.
He also emphasized the integrity of the Club's building, which opened in January 2011. "While Japan experiences frequent seismic activity, some of it violent, I would like to reassure you that the Club facility was constructed with a high degree of earthquake-proof engineering and design measures," he wrote.
In the coming days, he added, the Club would be looking at how it can help the people of Kumamoto and other affected areas.
