PRESIDENT MICHAEL MUNEKIYO REMINDS members that chow fun tickets were mailed to you on Friday, August 14. The tickets may be used to purchase chow fun at the Maui Fair or picked up on Saturday, October 5, at the WHM social hall from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

He humbly asks that members and affiliate organization members assist by purchasing and/or selling the chow fun tickets. He hopes that the pre-sale will help to promote our chow fun booth at the Maui Fair. He stated that this fundraising activity supports our temple’s operating budget so that we may better serve our members and organizations. The success of this four-day fundraising project has helped the temple reduce the need for more fundraising. Without the success of this project, another major or several minor fundraisers would be needed.

President Munekiyo asks for your help in purchasing or selling the four (4) mailed pre-sale tickets. An $8 donation for each ticket will allow its holder to receive one (1) quartsize container of chow fun. Purchasing a quart size chow fun without a ticket at the fair is $9. Additional tickets may be purchased at the temple office for $8. This is a savings of $1 off the fair price. He said that members may pick up their chow fun at the Maui Fair during the following days.

  • Thursday, October 3 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Friday, October 4 5 p.m. to 12 midnight
  • Saturday, October 5 10 a.m. to 12 midnight

If members are not able to pick up their chow fun at the fairgrounds, they may pick it up at the temple on Saturday, October 5, between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. at the Wailuku Hongwanji Social Hall. If you plan to pick up your chow fun on Saturday, please call the temple office at 244-0406 on or before Friday, September 27, to ensure that enough quart size chow fun are available.

President Munekiyo stated that in order to purchase the correct amount of chow fun and other supplies, he asks that payment for pre-sale tickets be mailed or hand-carried to the WHM office by Friday, September 20.
