Event Description: Twenty-nine years and Leadership Hillsboro is continuing to excel at producing leaders. For the past nine months each dedicated Leadership applicant spent time learning more about Hillsboro to then take that vital information about our community back to their places of employment and to the people that surround them. At Business Forum June 12 they will graduate from the program, and Junki Yoshida, of Mr. Yoshidas Marinades and Cooking Sauces, will be presenting on the importance of community leadership. His outgoing and fun personality make him a delightful and interesting speaker that you won’t want to miss!

Mr. Yoshida arrived in Seattle, WA from Japan at the age of 19 with only $500 in his pocket. He began teaching karate, but as the holidays approached, he had no money to buy gifts for his students. What he did have was his family's age-old secret recipe for a gourmet cooking sauce. So he and his family gave bottles of his sauce as Christmas gifts. To his surprise and delight, students began requesting refills. As word-of-mouth spread and demand grew, the Yoshida's decided to market their unique product and sell it in local grocery stores. Today this line of delicious sauces sells in stores throughout the United States, offering unique flavors, versatility and fun for everyday meals.

Business Forum is Tuesday, June 12 from 11:30am to 1pm at the Cultural Arts Center (527 E. Main St). Cost is $20/members and $25/non-members. RSVP is required to Shelly Scott at shellys@hillchamber.org or 503.726.2145.
