Though we are saddened to see Mr. and Mrs. Katayama leave us earlier than expected, we are happy to hear they have been reassigned to Shanghai China, and this will be Dr. Katayama's fifth time living in China.

DCBA Annual Appreciation Summer Picnic
On Saturday August 15th the DCBA held its annual Member appreciation picnic at Bald Mountain Recreation Center. Many members and their families came out to enjoy the day. We were also honored to have special guests from the Border Business Club (BBC) of Windsor, Ontario join us. 
The atmosphere was relaxed and jovial and the weather was hot! Everyone who came was treated to some great food and beautiful scenery. The BBQ was full, the beer and water were ice cold and thanks to all the kids the ice cream was gone before it melted! There was an 
intense game of volley ball and Perhaps in part due to the heat, the Children (and one DCBA intern that shall remain nameless) got into a water fight of astronomic proportions. 

It was a day for fun, family and community. It is this community that

we at the DCBA are focused on. The greater Detroit community, the Chinese community of Michigan, our community. It is our belief that we all rise and fall based on the strength and breadth of our relationships, and in this endeavor we aim to help our entire community achieve great success!
