Once again, Nashville Aikikai will be collecting donations for the Shade Tree Clinic over the holidays. For those of you who are unfamiliar, the Shade Tree Clinic is a free clinic run by Vanderbilt medical students that provides medical care to Nashville’s uninsured. You can get more information about the program on their website, www.shadetreeclinic.org. Please make checks out to the dojo and indicate that the money is for the clinic on the memo line. You can give the check to Mary Sensei or just put in the mailbox in the back. Last year we raised $850. Let’s try to reach or exceed that amount again this year!
