SLOBC celebrated Hanamatsuri on March 8 with a service and a beautifully decorated Hanamido. Thank you to all who donated the beautiful flowers! Then we had a delicious Otoki (lunch) of chicken teriyaki bowls and delicious salads and desserts. Thank you to all who provided food for the lunch and help in preparing and cleaning up! Then the fun continued with games provided by Gary Hongo with some great prizes. In all, it was a very enjoyable Hanamatsuri celebration.
On Sunday, May 13, we will be honoring the wife and daughter of Shinran Shonin, Lady Esshini and Lady Kakushini during the service. We will also honor Lady Kujo who is credited with beginning the Fujinkai (Buddhist Womens Association). Please attend this special service.
The SLOBC Golf Tournament is the second big fundraiser for the year and it is coming up on Saturday, May 19 at beautiful Cypress Ridge Golf Club. SLOBWA plays a big part in providing manpower support for the tournament and we need your help. We need people in various positions so if you can provide a few hours of help, we would really appreciate it. Please contact Gary Hongo if you can help.
