As soon as the door to the game room was opened at 7:45 pm, children rushed in to enjoy games offered by the dharma school at WHM’s Obon festivities last month. Parents, teachers, students, and friends manned six carnival type games throughout the two nights. The activity was a fun way to organize a fundraiser conducted to help defray costs of future dharma school events and activities. Thank you to all for helping to make the event a success!
