Backyard Mini Reunions are a very special way for small groups to get together. They offer a chance to bond with others and have in-depth conversations you don't often get an opportunity to in a larger group.
Jim and Karen Asher recently (June 2018) hosted a backyard Mini Reunion at their beautiful Pasadena, California, home. Jim said of the experience, "I am especially partial to the small backyard reunions. I think the “crowing glory” was Lynn Hensley and the ability for us all to interface with her and be able to tell her about her brother and ours, Glenn Nishizawa. There is never a better deed to do in life than what we do in this organization."
