Dear Fellow Members,
I am glad to inform you that on November 19th, 2013, the Hyogo-Ken informed that Kobe Club has been approved for change of status to Ippan Shadan Hojin. February 3rd, 2014 has been set for the official registration for Iappan Shadan Hojin Kobe Club, meaning February 2nd would be the last day for the current Kobe Club status.
On the same day, the new board of trustees and the new balloting committee will take charge. I would like to wish the incoming board members and balloting committee members all the best.

Dear Fellow Members,
Before adjourning the Extraordinary General Assembly of October 27th, I was permitted to address the members with a few remarks/requests. Since there were very few members in attendance, most of you having opted to vote in advance or by proxy, I am herewith reproducing my comments, plus an addition or two.
As there is no plan for a General Assembly when the transition takes place, I thanked the soon outgoing and incoming trustees for taking on the thankless task of running our Club during these difficult years.
For Members : Holiday Greeting from Our Manager

One day this Spring, we received a phone call from the Kyoto University Library. They had found 6 books which used to belong to the Kobe Club Library. Each book has a Kobe Club Library stamp with year and date. The oldest stamp was dated, August 21, 1919 and the most recent one was dated, 1940. It is thrilling to imagine that some of our past club members were reading these books in the red brick Kobe Club at Kano-cho, some 70 - 90 years ago. The person who called us, told us that they had no idea how these books happened to end up at the Kyoto University Library. The Kobe Club building had burned down during an air raid in 1945. These books have survived through many difficult times in history and were finally returned to where they belong.

Sunday, October 27th
Mindful that the time was 12 noon, the Ball room of the Kobe Club was darkened and gloomy as.
Though it were the witching hour, Shrieking toddlers and howling by the not so young reverberated through the trick ether that filled the space.
But now the times have changed and the pagan ritual has been re-invented to match the less gloomy world. Halloween party was bedazzled by the presence of Jedi Knights, Toy story’s Woody, Bryan Ninja family and the usual compadres of Disney princesses. There were about 10 round tables with 10 persons each sans the requisite Halloween monsters, a reflection of a less ghoulish time.
Events : Autumn Gibier Dinner
