Honoring Past Three Presidents

On Sunday, December 4th, Portland had the first significant snow of the season!

It was a cold morning, but a beautiful one.

This Sunday Service was dedicated to honor past three temple presidents who have passed away recently : Al Abe, Ken Kawazoe and Herb Osaki.

Mark, Marilyn, Dr.Al and Ken (standing in for Cathy) talked about their memories with the three men who were vital forces in building Oregon Buddhist Temple. Etsu's piano made the service even more special, solemn and sweet.

Reverend Sugahara's Dharma message was about appreciation to past and present Sangha.
