Bon Dance Practice
Our Bon Dance practice will be held on Tuesday, August 6 at 7:00 p.m. Like last year, this will be the only practice before Obon. Please come and enjoy practicing for Maui’s only Okinawan Bon Dance.
Rev. Yamaguchi will take appointments for Tanagyo, the home service for Obon.
Preparation for Obon
Manpower is needed on Friday, August 16, to set up the tent and dressing rooms.
Bazaar items will be accepted on Saturday morning, August 17, beginning at 8:00 a.m. We welcome donations of baked goods, pickles, plants, flowers and vegetables. No rice dishes, please, and also no items with cream fillings or homemade frosting. (Commercial frostings are okay).
Regarding food items, please provide ingredient labels, listing ingredients in descending order of quantity. And please enclose containers in plastic wrap or baggies to prevent ants from getting into them.
Thank you very much !
