An Invitation to the December 2019 Charter Chapter Meeting

Our next quarterly meeting of the TCC Charter Chapter (Los Angeles/Orange County) will be held on Saturday, Dec. 14, when we return to the popular Lawry’s The Prime Rib for our festive Annual International Holiday Luncheon.

Speaker Pauline Chakmakjian

Pauline Chakmakjian, a TCC member who also volunteers as an honorary Visit Kyoto Ambassador, will present “Time and Space in Japan,” exploring the historical ideas about Japanese notions of travel and traveling. The Past (art, spiritual and political history), Present (contemporary culture), and Future (the 2020 Tokyo Olympics) will showcase Japan’s transition from an insular, closed society to a cosmopolitan international center.
