The Salt Lake City Buddhist Temple’s Youth Group, the YBA is planning a trip to Southern California in the summer of 2018. It is a long held tradition to travel by bus to California where we visit multiple Buddhist Temples, as well as other Japanese museums, sights and businesses. Visiting and exploring different temples allows us to learn the history of that particular temple, experience their customs and traditions and hopefully attend/participate in one or two Obon festivals. Visiting other Japanese American organizations broadens and enriches our lives , perspectives and experiences.
Right now we are in the process of organizing, planning and executing our trip so as many youth as possible can attend. This trip is important for those involved in the YBA. The experiences go beyond the valuable lessons learned from the services, volunteering at events and dancing in our own Obon Festival. We want as many YBA members to experience this amazing and memorable Bus Trip. Others who have attended the trip report it was the best trip they have been on. The experience created lifetime memories and new friends.
Thank you for your consideration and support of this very important endeavor. Your donation is tax-deductible.
