The weeks leading up to the 2017 Obon Festival, the offers to volunteer kept pouring in. The Guadalupe Buddhist temple would like to send out heartfelt THANK YOU to all of this years volunteers. We could not have done it without you. The long hours, the attention to detail and the commitment to help. THANK YOU!
Volunteers came from far and wide and to help until there was no more work to be done. With little sleep, they we’re up early and ready to celebrate the very next day. Below are some of the behind the scenes of how the food is prepared, the decorations and all those smiling faces that made it happen.
All the photos below were taken by church friend Keith Shiroma.
