Happy Year of the Ox! 2009/1/13 08:02
Thanks for all the great posts! I'm still in the process of setting up the Chofu Elementary website. I've just been really busy the past few months, but I hope to have it up and running before the end of January.

Other good news! 2009/1/13 08:10
My childhood friend from Kanto sent me a couple of photos of the Japanese family we stayed with back in 1972! It's really exciting to finally have them since I had no photos from that time. I'm thinking about posting them somewhere on the forum in hopes that someone might recognize the family.

Why don't you send the pictures to the Japanese newspapers referenced early in this thread?

I lived in Kanto Mura 70-73 2009/1/29 17:21
My family lived in Kanto Mura from 1970-73. I attended Chofu elementry from 6th grade to 8th grade. I remember a Ms. Kunze as a science teacher. There is a Chofu group on FACEBOOK. I posted a school picture from 1970. I don't know names of everyone, but maybe some of you all would know some of the folks. I have a younger brother and sister that also went to Chofu Elementary. Yvette and Roy (Buddy) Eaves.

I also went to Chofu HS from 69-71 and returned in 84 for a short visit. It's amazing how quickly things change over there. But a few things remain the same. If you go to Google street views you'll see the candy store outside the fence at Kanto Mura is still there. Here's the path:

Hi, I'm a sister of Lewis Blevins (he has responded also). The Chofu.org site is pretty good. I have located some of my friends through this site. Perhaps someone on that site can help you. Good luck to you.

Chofu website 2009/2/6 04:16
To Pam,

Are you getting any closer to getting your website completed? I think it's a great idea and hope to share as much as I can on the site including pictures. I believe you are the Pam that I corresponded with about a year ago through email. My name is Marty and you sent me some wonderful pictures of you as a child in Kanto Mura. I am in the process of scanning in old photos and slides from that era. I hope I can find a few Kanto Mura pics as most are from Yokota.

Kanto Mura, Chofu! 2009/3/3 05:13
My family lived there in there and at Tachikawa. We were one of the last families living there when they closed the base down. I remember the great Bonadori's on base in the summer, school, the hole in the fence, football and so many happy times. My older sister and brother Teresa & Mark went to Chofu High while my brother Joe and I (Cathy) attended the elementary shcool. I ran into a DoD teacher while I lived in Germany - I cant remeber her name, her class was next to Ms Cody's and she was Phillipino - and wore great shoes all the time.

Chofu Elementary website launched! 2009/4/21 10:49

Hi, everyone!

FINALLY! I've launched the website devoted to all of us who went to Chofu Elementary. It took an entire year from the purchase of the domain name until the actual publishing of the site (due to lack of free time to work on it and many programming issues)! Most of it is still under construction (especially the message board), but please check it out and mention it to your friends and/or siblings who attended CES. Thanks! Pam

Regarding your suggestion about sending the photos to newspapers in Japan, that seems like a good idea but a very complicated process. First, there is the language barrier (I am not fluent in Japanese) and second, it's doubtful any newspapers would spend time or expense on something that might not be very interesting to many people. If I lived in Japan, however, I would definitely consider your suggestion.

Chofu Elementary website update 2009/5/8 06:46
The forum is up and ready for posting, but there are some minor issues with pixelation in some areas. Everything works, it's just difficult to read a few buttons and fields. I'm in the process of trying to get this problem corrected, but feel free to use the forum now if you wish: http://www.chofuelementary.org/forum/index.php
