The 50th anniversary ceremony of foundation of the Tottori Deaf Adult Class was held in Tottori-shi, Tottori Prefecture on December 1.

The importance of the lifelong learning for a Deaf person was realized again after commendation to persons supporting management of a class and recognized for rendering their distinguished service, a keynote speech, etc.

The head of the class management committee gave a speech: "Tottori Prefecture recently enacted the sign language ordinance. From now on, we must strive for spread of sign language."

The class was formed in 1963, the oldest as a social education organization for the Deaf adult in Japan, continuing activity for a long time.
