Happy New Year from Sonoma County Taiko.
We hope that this message finds everyone safe. 2020 was a year of unprecedented challenges.
You may or may not know that from mid March through October our dojo was shut down completely and all of the performances that were scheduled after March were cancelled. Since classes and performances are our main income source that made a significant impact on our financial stability. Through the generous donations from a number of wonderful people and organizations we were able to end 2020 in the black.
We are enormously thankful to have the support of an amazing community, without whose financial and moral support we wouldn’t be in the relatively stable position we are in. The gratitude that we feel is so deep that it is impossible to express in words. If we were able to have physical contact we would be giving everyone long extended hugs of appreciation.
We love you all and wish everyone a safe, healthy 2021
