Portland Japanese Garden was deeply honored to be the subject of longtime KGW-TV anchor Brenda Braxton’s last report for the network. Braxton, who started at KGW-TV in 1989, interviewed the Garden’s CEO, Steve Bloom, about our 60th anniversary and our plans in the years to come with our global cultural initiative, Japan Institute. A written article is on KGW-TV’s website and the video can be viewed below. Thank you, Brenda, for your many years of service to our community and we wish you well in your next chapter!
