Here’s the latest and final update for our Obon 2020: The Guadalupe Buddhist Church annual Obon Festival is officially postponed for this year.
Even in a pandemic, the community of family that we have built in support of the Guadalupe Buddhist Church is strong and active! We’ve also received donations for our White Elephant sale, which will be held and ready for next year’s festival (thank you June and Deane Nakata!). This will be a continuous request, so if you or anyone you know has Japanese items that they wish to donate, please contact us through this website or Alice Maxon to arrange pickup or delivery to the church.
Thank you all again, and we hope this finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy. We will miss interacting with you and catching up at Obon, but we look forward to the time when we can all be together again.
