President's Message
By LuAnn Lee, Board President
President's Message                       
     Although it felt like tropical weather today with the rain and humidity, I felt a cool
breeze in the air one evening last week. It made me think of fall and reminded me that
October is right around the corner. As many of you know, we have been planning and
looking forward to the middle of October when we will celebrate the 90th Anniversary of
the Temple and the 65th Anniversary of the Junior YBA.
     I know 100 percent participation for these events may not be a realistic goal but I think
we are on our way to having many members and guests attend. As of this week, we have
about 150 people signed up for the luncheon and almost 30 people signed up for the
Affirmation Ceremony with Bishop Umezu as officiant.
     Another update is the 90th Anniversary Fundraising Project, We are so grateful and
excited to let you know that we are half way to our goal and it’s only September. It would
be something if we could get the $50,000 or more by our Anniversary weekend. It’s true
what they say that every little bit counts. We are truly thankful to all of you that have
already donated and pledged a donation.
     I look forward to seeing you around the temple and at our many events for the
Anniversary weekend October 15 and 16th.   

                                                                                                                     In Gassho,
                                                                                                                     LuAnn Lee
