Alumni, former students, former teachers and administrators met for Chinese New Year on Saturday, February 17 at Manchinro Honten, an established and well-known Chinese restaurant in Yokohama Chinatown. Some enjoyed the school tour which preceded going down memory lane through buildings and admired the new additional ones since their days at Saint Maur. Looking at the smiling faces of the attendees it was yet another successful reunion enjoyed by everyone in attendance.
