PPSEAWA sisters gathered in New York for a magical evening on March 16, 2018, celebrating PPSEAWA’s founding 90 years ago in Hawaii.
The festivities included a three-course dinner, a cake cutting ceremony with PPSEAWA International Executive Committee members Rahmah Abdul Hamid (President), Mondhiya Bhangshba (1st VP), Akari Yamada (2nd VP), Mei Chuan Chao (Secretary), and Susan Iwamura (Treasurer), and a slideshow commemorating the history of PPSEAWA.
Two "Golden Member" Service Awards were presented to Yasuko Kawamoto, in recognition of 50 years of contributions to PPSEAWA, and Lady Francesca Todd, in recognition of 46 years of contribution to PPSEAWA. PPSEAWA Japan presented the award recipients with gifts.
The PPSEAWA 90th Anniversary Celebration was held concurrently with the 62nd Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW62) at the United Nations Headquarters.
