BWA MEMORIAL SERVICE
On January 29, BWA held our Eshinni-ko / Kakushinni-ko / BWA Memorial and Seminar when we honored and remembered our members who have passed away during 2020, 2021 and 2022. Rev. Etsuko Mikame of San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin was our guest minister who was well received.
Youth Dana Gifts
During the BWA Memorial service, we gave the MVBT Youth Groups our Dana Gifts, which is our most rewarding event. We are grateful to our Sangha for their generosity during our Dana Youth Fund Drive.
Following the Service/Seminar, a group of 18 honored Rev. Mikame at a luncheon at Don Giovanni Ristorante in Mountain View. We all enjoyed delicious food and good conversations.
