Yamagata Network’s Activity Report & Objective ~Part22

~From the blog of August 27th of the Yamagata Relief Network for Historical Heritage


The Obon Holiday is over, and the cleaning operation has started again. Unfortunately, the starting day was a rainy day, so we couldn’t smoothly restart.

The cleaning operation in YWJC will be suspended as from 27th August, and that in TUAD will be closed as from 30th August, because the summer holiday will be begin in each university (However, these suspensions will only be for the operation open to the public, and will restart in October). Therefore, the cleaning operation will be held only in Yamagata University. Soon, the operation for tidying and maintaining the materials will begin. Hereafter, the various issues such as the plan for long-term effort, storage, and arrangement are piling up and we have to continuously discuss them. More manpower and knowledge will be required. We appreciate your participation and support of our operation.
