DIRECTOR OF FINANCE PAUL HIRANAGA reminds members that the year 2019 is coming to a close. Have you paid your 2019 gojikai (membership dues)? By paying your dues, you are saying I want to be a dues-paying member, and I support the Wailuku Hongwanji Buddhist Temple in serving its members and community. I believe and support what the temple is doing. As we begin to think about our 2019 tax obligation, this might be a good time to send in your dues for 2019. Check with your accountant to determine if you should pay your 2020 dues early. Please do so before the end of the year. Mahalo
