Aki Matsuri ~ Short on Volunteers

With Aki Matsuri, our Fall Food Festival, almost a week away, we are woefully short on volunteers for the event.

Volunteer work is our expression of dana. This selfless giving is a reflection of our gratitude to Amida Buddha. When you volunteer your time, you enable us to celebrate special Buddhist services, maintain the Temple, serve the wider community, and develop a bond between Temple members. 
If you are interested in helping out with Aki Matsuri, please sign up this Sunday at the temple, or contact for available volunteer slots and times. In Gassho, Minister's Assistant Jefferson Workman

Some of the volunteer positions are:

Saturday 11/2: Inari Sushi making (we will teach you how)

Sunday 11/3:

Making Futomaki Sushi


Runner for take out

Clean up
