Findlay Toyota at Valley Auto mall hosted a Toys for Tots’ event to encourage people to donate toys. A presentation of colors was done by Color Guard Vietnam Veterans of America Post 1076 and Disabled American Veterans Chapter 12. Japan America Society of Nevada, a Co-Sponsor, organized the entertainment that included Traditional Japanese fan dancing and Japanese drumming done by their members. Findlay Toyota General Manager John Barr attended the event. Before the entertainment began, one of Barr’s employees bet that Barr didn’t have the guts to go over and try out the drums. He did and went back a second time for a photo! The Marine Reserve also came to volunteer their time to help out.
