Thanks to all those who helped make the event a success, including our wonderful volunteers. We actually ran out of food due to the people who came and made this work by buying food. The few leftover that were left have all been taken care of and went to good homes to be eaten later. Thank you Angus for being a wonderful videographer and bring the ninja costumes, the costumes were great. The pocky and origami stand also managed to do some business, not much but every bit count.
