Announcements for December 2019

Udon Sale - The Temple will hold its annual Udon Sale on Sunday, December 8, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  (Our little flyers have the wrong date on them - sorry!)  The price per bowl is still $7.00.  Chicken katsu and curry, prepared by the Fujinkai, will also be for sale.  Enjoy a hot lunch with us!  Please bring your family and friends to this worthy and tasty fund raiser.

The Temple will also be raffling off a beautiful Christmas gift basket donated by Frances Nakashoji!  The gift contains two picture frames, a ladies Christmas blouse, a Christmas light rope, blue holiday ornaments and an old fashion metal holiday mug.  Raffle tickets will be sold at the door for $1 each or 6 for $5.

Need a last minute stocking stuffer for Christmas?  The Fujinkai will also be selling various craft items that would be perfect!  These items are handmade, so they are individually unique.

Immediately following the service, the annual General Meeting will be held in the Temple and the results of the 2019 elections will be announced.  This time the election results will include the new Cabinet and Fujinkai officers (the Board of Trustees election will occur in 2020).  This is an open meeting for all members, and we welcome any discussion or suggestions to improve our Temple outreach and support. 

At the conclusion of the General Meeting, refreshments will be served in the Social Hall.
