Recalling our history, we did have our Obon service under a blue tarp and danced on grassless ground on Labor Day weekend of 1987, the year our entire temple was lost due to a suspicious fire. The parking was only within our sanctuary grounds and a temporary restroom was built with fire-damaged materials. We built a stage, strung chochin (lantern) wire, made benches, and so on. We had just enough Issei and Nissei who wanted to keep our culture alive for future generations. ! Please let us keep their wish alive and help us with anything you are able to do, and keep us going for many more years to come. ! ! 今年もいよいよ夏、お盆が近づ party mixes, etc.) are also good sellers.
