As usual, many arrived early, then lined up waiting for the doors to open. For some, it’s an opportunity to have some home-made Japanese food. For others, it’s a chance to catch up with old friends.
This year, a special table was set up promoting the 2015 World Women’s Buddhist Convention, to be held in Calgary in 2015. Karma Kupcakes were served in exchange for a donation.
The Fall Bazaar features a sit-down serving of udon noodle soup, served with chicken and satsumage (Japanese fishcake). The traditional Japanese meal has been served at the temple as a fundraiser for decades.
We’d like to thank everyone who came out to enjoy the wonderful food. But, a special thanks goes out to all the volunteers who gave their time and effort to help.
Months of planning and many days of work go into this day, so, we thought we would let you see some of the behind-the-scenes preparations.
If you didn’t make it, make sure you come to our Cherry Blossom fundraiser in April 2015.
