After a hard day’s work in the fields, many Japanese-American farmers enjoyed a nice soak in the furoba. The day’s cares and worries dissolved in the warm waters. The Hori family built their bathhouse in 1930s next to their home, the Neely Mansion.
Your support is important to the success of the Association and its goals. If you have not joined yet, please don’t delay. Just fill out the membership form, write a check, and mail it in soon. Several of our goals are to have the mansion painted, the porch repaired, the arbor painted, expand the orchard, and to restore the Japanese bathhouse. Please consider becoming a volunteer too; the goals will be achieved sooner with more volunteers!
Please contact Karen Bouton, Membership Chair, with any questions or comments about membership or volunteer opportunities.
