The newly formed All Camps Reunion Committee is proud to announce that the All Camps Reunion, a luncheon for former incarcerees of the World War II American concentration camps and their desendants, will be held on May 2 at the Quiet Cannon Country Club in Montebello, Calif.

With the passing of so many incarcerees and one camp no longer able to attract a large enough crowd, former incarcerees and descendants of various camps got together to have an All Camps Reunion in this area for the first time.

Committe members consist of Meri Asano, Tina Asano, June Aochi Berk, David Fujioka, Colleen Ishibashi Hayashi, Keiichi Ikeda, Marvin Inouye, George Iseri, Richard Iseri, Barbara Keimi, Hal Keimi, Teeny Kunitomi Miyano, Masako Koga Murakami, Bacon Sakatani, Sachi Tsurudome Sasaki and Min Tonai.
