BWA News – January 2024

Dana Youth Fund Drive

The Sangha was most generous for our Dana Youth Fund Drive in November.  We are truly grateful and will present our MVBT Affiliated Youth Groups our gifts at our BWA Memorial Service on Sunday, January 21. 

Our sincere THANK YOU!

Udon Fundraiser

BWA extends our thank you for your support of our Udon Fundraiser held December 3, 2023.  With new members, friends, and spouses, it was like the past with many hands helping to make it a successful event.

BWA Memorial Service

On Sunday, January 21, 2024, we will have our Eshinni, Kakushinni, Lady Takeko Kujo, Lady Yoshiko Ohtani and BWA Memorial Service.  At the service, past BWA members will be honored.

Karen Akahoshi (the wife of Rev. Kenji Akahoshi) will be our guest speaker.  In May 2023, she was chosen to be the guest speaker for BCA at the 2023 World Buddhist Women’s Conference in Kyoto, Japan.
