Dear Mr. Quakenbush:

From the inception of the Japanese American Farmers at the Pike Place Market Public Artworks project, the Lake Washington Chapter of the Japanese-American Citizens League has embraced it and eagerly awaits its completion.

To underscore our support for this project, we are transmitting this letter to you. We visualize the artwork commissioned to Aki Sogabe to enhance the Pike Place Market as a historically attractive Seattle location which increasingly serves locals, as well as the millions of visitors. We can hardly wait to see the results.

Best regards for a successful year.


Rose Nohara, President

Lake Washington Chapter JACL
