Melrose Hosts Birthday of the Buddha Celebration

We were honored that Memorial Hall was chosen as the location for the first joint celebration of Buddha’s Birthday by ten Buddhist temples from Massachusetts and beyond. The Vietnamese Buddhist community hosted the celebration, which included music, rituals, and entertainment. Ed O’Connell of the Melrose School Committee represented the City of Melrose and gave a very nice welcoming speech, which you can see in the video above. We extend our thanks to the Vietnamese Buddhist community for choosing Memorial Hall for their celebration, and we welcome them back anytime.
