Hey Nakayoshi, obon season is about to get started, and we’ll be helping out once again at the Mountain View Buddhist Temple’s Obon and Bazaar on Sunday, July 20.  Please see the links below to sign up for the various shifts. There are also shifts available to help set up and prepare food during the week prior to the obon for those of you in the South Bay. We hope you can join us for a fun day of volunteering and sampling all the great food and game booths, followed by traditional obon dancing at the end of the day! Popular booths that Nakayoshi has helped with in the past include the chicken teriyaki booth and tempura booths.

We are also arranging carpools for those of you who need rides. Drivers and riders, please sign up for carpools at:

Please remember to bring hats and or aprons (optional) for any volunteer shifts involving the handling of food.

As many volunteers as we can get are needed for the pre-bazaar activities including construction of booths and preparation of food stuffs (like manju making and vegetables and beef preparations).
