Mary Lou Brock from the Marion County Economic Development Office sent the following announcement regarding the plans for Japanese Cultural Day.

"The Japanese Cultural Day event scheduled for March 27, 2011 has been postponed. Our sympathy and prayers go out to the Japanese people that have been devastated by this terrible tragedy. The Japanese Cultural Day Committee will be meeting later this year to reschedule the event."
