YBA News – January 2024

Holiday Party

On December 2, we had our annual YBA Holiday Party, which was planned by the advisors.  The party, which started at 6 pm, consisted of a dinner with YBA members and their families, various games that were enjoyed by all, and a White Elephant gift exchange with the members who attended.

Mochi Tsuki

Our YBA helped out at the Temple’s Annual Mochitsuki Fundraiser.  Members helped out with a variety of tasks during the day like mochi shaping, take out, pounding, and being a cooling runner.

Coast District Winter
Activity

We are currently planning and preparing for the CD Winter Activity, which will take place on Saturday, January 20, at the Mountain View Buddhist Temple. The current plans are to have a cooking demonstration and have all attendees cook their own meal.

YBA Spaghetti Dinner

Our YBA Spaghetti Dinner Chair Jillian Higa has been making preparations for this year’s Spaghetti Dinner on Saturday, February 10.  The order form is on Page 10 and the committees have been communicating with each other about the event.  We are excited to have our fundraiser and hope everyone will come out to support YBA.

In Gassho,
