Jacque Barmore, a student in Japanese 350 Advanced Japanese Writing, presented "Ikebana: Japanese Flower Arranging," introducing the audience to the style and cultural significance of Japanese flower arranging as well as photographs of the different types of arrangements.

Congratulations to all our participants! It was a successful and enjoyable Recital.
