-Arizona Chapter Popular at TMY

The Arizona chapter’s ikebana demonstration at Tucson Meet Yourself was popular, drawing both passers by and people who sought it out from the event schedule. Kiyoko Matsuyama gave three demonstrations over the course of two hours. In addition, Kiyoko, Paula Coleman and Arlene Watkins made arrangements just prior to the scheduled opening.
