MVBT President’s Message

Dear Sangha Members: 

I’m honored and excited to begin my 2-year term as the Temple’s Board President. 

First of all, I’d like to thank Bob Matsumoto for his leadership.  Always keeping the Sangha’s safety and health as our #1 priority, he successfully guided us through the COVID pandemic working with the Healthy and Safety Committee and creating the Reopening Task Force.  Thanks, Bob!

I’m looking forward to keeping MVBT on the road forward.  As we open up the Temple, more and more Sangha members have been participating in in-person activities.  It’s great to see your smiling faces.


With gassho,

Jean Shimoguchi

2023-2024 MVBT
