The reunion was organized mainly by Neil Ito, one of Ginger's sons. I remember Ginger as a child for her saltiness and spunk. She was a teacher in the mountains and she and her husband ran Ito Ski Rentals near Snow Valley for decades. She scolded my parents for letting me read "Love Story" in the 4th grade.
This is the Kuida family doing foam crafts and arty things.

See Joe at the far left. As the patriarch, he was the winner who took all.
The food was amazing, as some of the Ito's work in the fishing industry I think. With made-to-order sushi (from Sushi Chef Institute in Little Tokyo) and the most incredibly delicious fried fish, you couldn't go wrong. Maiya was 5 months old at the last Ikeguchi reunion 5 years ago. I look forward to the next one!
