Temple President's Message for November 2017

To the Temple members of Salinas Buddhist Temple and friends:   
   
I would like to thank all the Temple members and friends who came to the annual Keirokai for our senior members of the Temple who are 75 years or older. I think we had more food for the potluck luncheon than what we had for the New Year party in January, so again thank you members and friends for all the wonderful food everyone brought to the Keirokai. I would also like to thank everyone that provided all the great entertainment for the seniors.  I would also like to thank the members of the Temple who attended the Nembutsu Family Conference we had at the Temple on October 29th. Without the local memberships, we would have had very poor turnout for the conference.   
   
On Sunday, November 5th, the YBA is having a pancake breakfast fundraiser for the Temple. This is the first time the YBA is having a fundraiser for the Temple since the YBA was re-started last year, after not having one for many years due to lack of YBA age youths at the Temple. So again, please come and support the Temple and the YBA families and kids.   
   
On Sunday, November 12th, the BWA is having their BWA Memorial Service at the Temple. I hope you can support the BWA service. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 23rd.    
   
In Gassho,

TEMPLE PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE FOR NOVEMBER 2017 IN JAPANESE   
   
サリナス仏教会メンバー様   
   
仏教会メンバーであり75歳以上の方々の為の敬老会へ来られた皆様へ感謝いたします。1月に行われた新年会のポットラックの時よりも多くの料理が敬老会にはあったと思います。素晴らしい料理を持って来て下さった方々ありがとうございました。また、敬老会で余興をしてくださった方々にお礼申し上げます。そして、10月29日に行われます、念仏ファミリー大会に出席してくださる方々ありがとうございます。サリナス仏教会のメンバー様なしでは、とても小さい念仏ファミリー大会になるとことでした。   
   
11月5日、日曜日、YBA(仏教青年会)はパンケーキ朝食資金調達を行います。YBA(仏教青年会)が昨年から始まりまして、初めてのお寺の為の資金調達です。ですので、是非ご参加し、彼ら、彼らの家族を助けてあげてください。
11月12日、日曜日、仏教婦人会は仏教婦人会追悼法要を行います。私はあなたが婦人会法要を支えることができると願っております。   
   
是非素晴らしいサンクスギビングをお過ごしください。   
   
合掌
Gary Tanimura
