Happy 100th, John Matsushima!!
Last week we enjoyed a special program - a 100th birthday celebration for long term RCFC member, John Matsushima. The program had 2 parts - first a proclamation by Mayor Wade Troxell declaring Johnny’s birthday, December 24, as John “Johnny” Matsushima Day!  This  was followed by a video https://youtu.be/nfZOLkGKkbY of a recent interview by one of FCRC’s  youngest members, Janis Roeder. Following the video, Johnny answered some questions from members.  Photo: CSU Scoreboard
