Message from Long Beach Buddhist Church
 
Annual Pledges & Membership Applicaiton (Renwal) 
 
Dear Sangha members and their families and friends,
 
We would like to extend our sicere appreciation to all the members, their families and friends and all the volunteers who helped us through 2018.
 
With strong leadership of the board of directors led by the four exectuvie members, Mrs. Susan Eastman, Mrs, Keiko Shibata, Mrs. Atsuko Yomogida and Mrs. Joanne Leivici, and with the tremendous support of the other board members and volunteers, the church was able to carry out Chow Mein dinner and Chicken sale to generate revenue to sustain the activities and facilities.

We will be renewing the board of directors early next year through the annual election.  We are happy to see the emergence of more leadership from among our members in recent years.
 
Also, the Bon Odori committee led by Mr. Robert Yasumura, Mr. Victor Fukuhara and Mrs. June Donovan successfuly carried out the second Bon Odori summmer festival after it was revived in 2017.  Their families and friends spent countless number of hours to make this event a huge success.  Their respect to their their ancestral roots and cultural values their parents have been preseving for generations makes this event a genuinely heart-warming experience for all. 
 
Next year, we are hoping to see more leaders share their talents, skills and experience to further enrich the culture of our community and strengthen the bond of our members and friends.
 
Aso for the ministry, Mr. Devin Seigaku Amato has been consistantly making effort to learn the core teachings and practice of Buddhism and he will be attaining the next rank called Zagen in January after completeing a ceremony at Saikoji temple in Aichi pref. Japan.  We are blessed to have 3 more already-lay-ordained students willing to take a monastic ordination next year.   We are also grateful for the guidance and inspiration from the teachers from the US, Japan and Sri Lanka.  We are hoping to bring back Sunday school and more educaitonal opportunities and religiuous activities as a team in the future.
 
As we conclude the 2018 and prepare for the new year, we'd like to ask you to join us and together make Long Beach Buddhist Church grow into a stronger and more inspirational community.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to spread Dharma.
 
Gassho,
Long Beach Buddhist Church
