JSBTC Day Donations - 2019

While JSBTC Day was formally observed during the Oct. 13 Sunday service, BTSA will continue to invite donations for the remainder of the month and through the end of November before remitting the total amount of donations to the Jodo Shinshu Buddhist Temples of Canada. Please make out cheques to BTSA and note “JSBTC Day” in the memo section of the cheque. All donations will be included in tax receipts issued for the year. The accompanying photo is of Rev. Senju Sasaki, the first Jodo Shinshu minister to Canada in Vancouver in 1905 and his wife

Fall Chow Mein Supper – October 20

The fall chow mein supper is set for Oct. 20 (Sunday). The drive-through event begins at 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. Ticket price is $15 each, available from temple members after Sept. 14. Keep fingers crossed for a warm, sunny autumn afternoon to make the day enjoyable and relaxing.

Mein-Making – Nov 16th

Calling all volunteers for another mein-making session, this time in preparation for the annual BTSA Bake Sale later in the month (see next item). We look forward to seeing as many members and friends as possible to help out at this Saturday session. Come out and spend the day chatting while working. Thanks to all.

BTSA Bake Sale – Nov. 30

The yearly Bake Sale unfolds on Nov. 30—couple of weeks after mein-making. This eagerly-awaited event will feature a variety of delightful goodies, as well as crafts. Helpers are needed to set the tables and to look after the sales. Another chance to spend leisurely time with members and friends.
