MVBT President’s Message – March 2021

Happy Year of the Ox!

I hope that 2021 will be the start of new beginnings.

Thank You Doug!

I would like to thank our past president, Doug Sawamura, for his dedicated and outstanding leadership these past two years. In addition to the normal challenges of being Temple President, the pandemic brought forth many new unexpected and unprecedented decisions, duties and responsibilities. Doug did this with mindful, patient, compassionate and strategic skills. Thank you also to his family, especially Phyllis who provided him the family support that allowed him to dedicate his time to the temple.

Stay Active & Engaged

In closing, I hope that with everyone’s efforts, we can keep our Sangha engaged and active, while keeping everyone healthy and safe. I look forward to serving as your Temple President for the next two years and ask for your active engagement as we continue to build and support our Sangha, so that we can learn and live the teachings of the Dharma.

In Gassho,
Bob Matsumoto
