2014 OBON Bazaar and OBON Practice

Bon Dance practice

bdOur Bon Dance practice will be only four Tuesdays: July 15, 22, 29, and August 5, starting at 7:00 p.m.

Please come to Paia and enjoy practicing Okinawan dance. Bring your friends too for some fun times.


We would appreciate donations for the bazaar. Fruits (bananas, oranges, mangoes, pineapples, lemons, etc.), vegetables, plants, and cut flowers are welcome.

Baked goods (bread, mini cake loaves, cookies, bars, party mixes, etc.) are also good sellers. Mochi other than nantu would be good too. Health Department rules don?t allow for baked goods with cream, nor rice dishes, unless they?re made in the RZM kitchen on the date of sale. All baked goods must be labeled with ingredients. Please list ingredients in the order of quantity, listing the major ingredients first. If you wish the labels be done for you, please bring a copy of the entire recipe.

Bazaar items may be brought to RZM on Saturday, the morning of the Obon. If you wish to have your donated item sold at a certain price, please make a note of it or let us know.
