Farewell Event for Kinuko – Video & Photos

April 14, 2019

After 27 years of coaching at the West Vancouver Tennis Club, Kinuko Higashio retired in March 2019, and will be returning to her home country of Japan.

There are very few members who have not been touched by Kinuko’s teaching and friendship over the years.  On April 14, 2019 an event was held in her honour at the Club.  A wonderful social time was had celebrating her and wishing her well.  Please scroll down to view the photo gallery!

Special thanks go out to the event co-ordinators and volunteers:  Sandy Sutton, Karin Tornquist, Jodi Pallan, Yuko Godoy, Wolfgang Knab, Yukari Haertel, Sabine Ritson, Gordon Saunders, and Linda Saunders.  Thank you also to the many people who contributed the delicious appetizers and desserts!
