Easter Drive-By:

Easter Drive-By 2021The Puna Hongwanji Buddhist Temple will be hosting an Easter Drive-By on Sunday April 4, 2021 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.  We will have a treat bag ready for the children to be handed out by our Easter Bunny.  Some of the goodie bags will contain a “golden egg” and in the bag there will be an extra surprise.  When attending the drive-by everyone in the car must wear a mask, everyone should remain in the car, and no parking allowed.  During the event Puna Taiko will be playing as you drive-by.  Goodie bags will be while supplies last.

Virtual Egg Hunt:

The Easter Bunny needs your help in finding all of the eggs that were dropped off at Puna Hongwanji Mission on the front lawn of the temple and in the front of the columbarium.  The Easter Bunny would be so happy to receive your help in locating all of the eggs.  We have loaded 360 for photos to our Facebook account.  We have provided 2 views each of the front lawn of the temple and the front of the columbarium.  The Easter Bunny will be anxiously waiting for you to drop off your guess on Sunday, April 4, 2021 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. at our Easter Drive-By.  Without going over find the eggs and the person that guess the exact or closest without going over could win one of five prizes.  If there is a tie, we will be doing a random drawing for the winners.
