Again this year, our holiday charitable event will be to raise money for the Shade Tree Clinic. The Shade Tree Clinic is a free medical clinic run by Vanderbilt Medical Students, which serves many of our fellow Nashville residents of limited financial means. For more information about the services the clinic provides, please check out their website at shadetreeclinic.org. You can give your donation to Mary Sensei, Marta, or leave a check in the mailbox. Please make checks out to Nashville Aikikai and indicate “Shade Tree Clinic” on the memo line. Last year we raised $498. Let’s exceed that goal this year!
